2018 Pacifica modifications for a wheelchair-car

Hello,
in this posts I will document the modification/conversion of a 2018 Pacifica
for a place on the right side for a wheelchair for my daughter.

The car is stripped out and a ramp is build in the cars under-floor.
Also a Air chassis is build in to lower the car when the ramp is used.

I bought the Pacifica with almost 50km and now it is in conversion.
It takes about 5 month.
From time to time I will post some pictures from the conversation.
Here are the first 2 pictures.

Really cool thread, thanks for sharing your progress. I've only seen modified Toyotas and Dodge Caravans on the streets.

That's an amazing amount of work. Do you know why quite a bit of the front dash had to be removed?

They have to remove the dashboard to get access to all the electronics to modify this for the conversion.
Hopefully they will build all this to a complete car

Thanks for answering. It looks like a very expensive conversion.

Looking at all the undoing of the factory assembly... why canít Chrysler or any other minivan do a factory assembly of wheelchair accessible versions. Iím sure there would be plenty of customers for that.
It should save all the disassemby and reassembly.
