V4 2.0. Swapping the bed, rear suspension and a bunch of other goodies from V4 to the new chassis. Parting out the rest of V4.
Nice, later next year I'm actually looking to start building a camper on a new cutaway chassis. When I get to that point I'll be seeking your help in making a flatbed for the chassis on which I can build my custom box. Oh, and 4x4 at some point as well.

Sounds good, we'll be here! We may or may not be able to build the bed, huge project that will eat up a bunch of fab time & space. let me know when you're close and we'll discuss.

B190 progress, packing a bunch of nice parts! 6" lift, Stage2 F axle with 4.56 gears and a True Trac, SSBC 8 piston calipers, Spyntec hub conversion, Fox shocks and a Hellwig sway bar. This bad boy will be on the ground in a few days!

Looks good
How is the inside of the box setup?
What about bike rack mounts
Fuel can mounts
The box is open, Pelican does make a nice organizer for small items that attaches to the door. Shelves can always be added. We have plans for another swing arm that has bike rack mounts/etc. A RotoPax could be added to the back of the pass side swing arm now.

Looks like Hill Start Assist, Traction Control and Electronic Stability Control are all standard for 2021. Do those cause any problems with the 4x4 conversion?

Shouldn't be an issue, we'll probably re use the stock rear axle with its individual ABS wires and re use the front sensors with our RSC upgraded axle. We'll see how they all behave offroad!
