    Haha! You mean Zombie Killer!! Good question on the weight... Short answer; more! Less short answer; I would guess 150lbs. But i really didn't want to know. I got it from a guy off good ole' craigslist that was selling off a 2500 Silverado. You dont want to know how little i paid : ) ..... I had to do some cutting and "creative" engineering, but it looks like a great fit when its all said and done and its structurally sound. I used the existing re-enforced bolt holes and then added a second set of horizontal grade 8s.

    Not enough snow over here yet, but trust me, ill try real hard to get her stuck!

    In addition to the 50 cal turret the next plans I have are a full size roof rack with safari lights, plywood or mesh lined for platform usage along with a rear door ladder. Up top could be used for shooting skeet (when the snows deep) pitching a ten up top "Hannibal style" (just for fun) And perhaps a hitch mount winch bed for the front. More twords the spring ill get involved on outfitting the cargo area for my camping needs.

    One thing i could use some input on is fender flares. Im sure a bored cop might want to give me grief about the tiny bit of exposed rubber, so i was considering a black rubber flare to mount on the arches. Anyone know of these being made for these vans?

    Thanks guys!

    Im taking the van and my pups back up to the snow for some rabbit hunting on monday, maybe ill have some better shots to share!
