Removed the industrial grade bumpers and expedition rack. The front bumper was massive and the rack had to be cut up because it was too heavy to remove in one piece. At least the van was equipped with heavy duty springs at the factory, so the she carried the weight well.

Here she is with stock style bumpers. I'll hope to hunt down a set of chrome replacements.

Next up, I'll be sealing up the holes left by the rack.

And thanks for all the welcome messages everyone!

Looks like you made quick work of the holes. And yeah I like the window vans too. Good luck!
