Vehicle: 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Conversion: Driver’s Side

Introduction: “I live in east Texas with my wife and 3 dogs. I love to be outdoors hunting, fishing, shooting guns and hanging out with friends and family. I sustained my spinal cord injury about a year ago and have had to adapt and overcome many obstacles since then. My ATC conversion has made a huge difference in my day to day life.”

How does your ATC vehicle improve everyday life? “I love my ATC conversion. It allows me to be independent and self-sufficient. Before the conversion, I had to rely on others to assist me with my wheelchair when getting in and out of the vehicle. It saves me time and energy getting in and out of my truck and saves the wear and tear on my shoulders from getting in and out of the vehicle several times a day.”

What are your favorite features of the conversion?  “My favorite feature… is the convenience of not having to get out of my wheelchair to drive. The conversion allows me to conserve energy by simply backing my manual chair up on the platform.”
