    So the cab is bolted into the box wall?

    They only add a back to the cab when required, if its going to be flatbed converted for example.

    Isn't that accepting a weaker structure on purpose? oO
    I would think the B-pillar could withstand way more horizontal side impact forces when they would put some horizontal connection pillars there? Considering the fact that this is the spot with the smallest crumple zone, i would imagine thats something you would do if you are able to, but well i have no idea if you have such pillars even on pickups?

    Well, the regular van body doesn't have any extra structure there - just some walls extending back past the B-pillars, so I don't think there's much of a difference as far as widthwise structural integrity.

    I think it does bolt directly to the cargo box IRL, but I'm not totally sure. References for large trucks are really hard to come by - especially close-up or high-res ones.

    I rode in a mercedes sprinter with cargo box rear once, it also had the rear of the cab cutaway and the cab was bolted to the box. Seems to be the setup I see on the roads most often. I think I have seen a ford transit cargo box which did have a rear to the cab and then a small gap between cab and box, but normally they appear to be the same setup as the H series cargo box and the sprinter I rode in.

    I am a heavy vehicle tech, and I haven't seen one that has a hole in the back. Maybe it's an American thing.

    Most all of the cutaway vans I've ever seen have actually had a passageway between the cab and the box body, sometimes they have a wall, but most of the time a curtain over a doorway.

    Also, it would make sense if say, you were going to make a short bus out of it, or something with an enclosed service body.

    Just saw this on the walking dead season 1 episode 3 (its probably in episode 2 aswell considering the van is in both episodes).




    Never finished season 2, if I recall I was at the scene when shane shaved his head and never watched it again. Brother is rewatching it all so I'll probably pick it up again.

    Yeah you are right though, there is a passage way between the box & van.

    The community agrees that it's okay to bump official showroom threads.

    Any chance of a flatbed version of Cabster? Heavy duty dual wheels at the rear axle for the Vanster would be a nice addition too.

    It wouldn't be too hard to just remove the walls and roof of the box in blender or something. I don't think the jbeam would be too difficult either.
    But to answer your question, I think gabe has said he is going to make a whole set of uplifts (cargo box, flatbed, etc) for this.
