Vehicle: Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Conversion: Passenger’s Side

Introduction: “First and foremost, I am a passionate follower of Jesus Christ. I am a retired Technical Program Manager for the Air Force. I restore Jeep CJs and am a Model Railroader. My wife, Carol, has been disabled for about six and a half years.”

How does your ATC vehicle improve everyday life? “We live on the rural eastern Great Plains of Colorado. The only access to our house is via dirt roads and winter access can be through a foot of snow or more. An accessible minivan just wasn’t going to cut it for us. The modified truck has proven to be just the ticket both in the snow and in the summer monsoon season when we get heavy afternoon rains that turn the dirt roads to a muddy mess. We also like to get off-road and explore old railroad rights-of-way and ghost towns in the Colorado mountains; all of that is available to us with this vehicle. This truck conversion has provided us with mobility we never thought possible.”

What are your favorite features of the conversion?  “Our favorite features are the way the doors have been modified and provide a cover in bad weather, the superior quality of the modification (fit and finish) and the fact that the modification has been fully safety tested so we can have peace of mind that it is road worthy and safe in the event of an accident.”
