North America’s best-selling commercial van offers 58 vehicle configurations with the introduction of a dual sliding door option for 2016.
And that enables owners to customize their vehicles almost beyond showfloor recognition.
The manufacturer has encouraged owners to submit pictures of how they have modified their vans and have received some examples of some very clever customizations.
For example, So-Gnar’s Creative Hub is a shred-ready Ford Transit and is modified with a custom boot dryer, snowboard rack, tuning bench and portable DJ booth to make snowboarding even more fun for its riders. “It’s an absolute dream of a creative hub that we can do anything out of,” says So-Gnar CEO Pat Milbery.

Chicago-based Windy City Limousine’s Ford Transit was converted by Battisti Customs of Elkhart, Indiana, to carry 13 passengers in luxury and style – with a wood floor, black leather couch-style seating and two flat-screen televisions.
Shultz’s Guest House uses its Ford Transit to transport orphaned dogs – sometimes from several states away – to a private 200-acre farm in Dedham, Massachusetts, where they are safe from being euthanized until permanent homes are found for them.
Still on the dog theme, Wag’n Tails Mobile Conversions in Granger, Indiana, converts Ford Transit vans into fully self-contained mobile pet grooming studios, complete with full-size tubs, hydro-massage shampoo systems, grooming tables, blow dryers, vacuums and fridges.
