Thought I would create a build thread to update people with my journey. I’ve got a plan in my head to go down the “caddy camper” route. But not fully. Still want the perks of having a van as well as having a camper! I go fishing quite a bit so I need to room for all the gear!

My Instagram is @js_caddy2k if anyone would like to follow.

It’s going to be a long journey but hopefully I’ll be happy when it’s done!

Picture below to show where I’ve started, it’s already been modified previously but I want to make it my own!

Thanks for stopping by, more updates to come!

Firstly, the ride height was too low and rather impractical. It looked good and sat well but I struggled to get over speed bumps and on the drive. With me using the van for fishing it would have really been a hinderance.

After analysing the existing coil-overs, I realised they were seized and I wouldn’t be able to adjust them.

So moving on, I ordered the Stance+ ones from stanced uk after trawling the forum to find the best value for money(for now). Hoping to eventually move on to a set of Billy’s.

Took the height up by 20mm, I’m not a fan of the arch gap but it makes it a lot more practical!

Thanks for lookingImage

Secondly, a new splitter. The one which came with the van was only cheap and nasty. Not well made whatsoever! I liked the look of the Triple R composites one. Also gives the van a lowered lookImage
