My boys converted ambulance. This thing has taken us to South Dakota, Colorado, Wyoming, and some local Midwest spots (from Chicago). 

Yes, converted to 4x4. Raised ceiling and solar panels.

Lol that little truck is way underpowered to be carrying that much weight.  I bet it slows down going up steep hills on the highway.

those mismatching hub caps and mags tho ❤️

I like that one.... clean and simple..... and I'm usually not a fan of rims but those look good.

Check out the system with the reserve cans on the back


if it really belongs to a seal, which I believe based on the part of the city I saw it, the thing is totally purpose built while still being a bit of a sleeper. Me gusta

The reason that bus gives off pedo vibes is because it still looks like a bus.  It's wheels/tires, lift kit, and paint job.


If it were me, I would have converted:

  • the exterior lighting to spot/flood lights
  • to a stronger (dually) rear end
  • bumpers barring they could not just be purchased
  • some of the windows to flat panels
  • the cab overhang and entire rounded top to a railed - storage rack that is accessible through a top hatch in the bus
  • any gasoline engine in this thing to the diesel turbo one that would fit
  • to a less tall lift kit

I would have gotten rid of:

  • any exterior ladders
  • that swinging stop sign on the side
  • the big stupid mirror

I've seen too many buses that were simply painted black in the similar fashion to how that one was just painted white.  I don't have one (yet) but I have ideas for when I do.  Ok I spent too much time thinking about how to make a short bus bad ass this morning.  Thank you for listening to my ted talk.
