The vacuum didn't come installed?
Just installed the vacuum in mine too. Takes about 2 minutes.

Instruction sheet says to "lube the hose". Had visions of some tech at the dealer lathering the hose with bearing grease and making a mess of things. A little Lexol or Armorall on the plastic end coupling allows it to easily pass through the first few inches of the outlet. Snaps right onto the flange on the vacuum in the back.

Suction is a little weak compared to my other vacuums (Festool & Alto), peaking at about 50" of water lift. A cheap ($75-100) vacuum will pull 65-75" and a good commercial vac is 90+.

The mini vacuum and the mini spare tire are both a compromise. At least you get to choose.

Thanks for that information, definitely will save someone from making a mess of things. The suction information is crucial too for people still open to making the choice

Find a good powdercoater and have it done.

These wheels were done by Chrysler as a prototype deal for the Pacifica, then given to a guy that sells off items like this. I got them from him for next to nothing....even had new Nitto tires on them.

Those are sick. I'm not much on Black Rims but those look really good.

They look good. Can't wait to see them on the van.

Forgot to show what they looked like on the van, I also blacked out some of the chrome, going to finish doing the rest hopefully this weekend....

Took delivery today, and dropped it off for Xpel and tint. High beam conversion to HID, and switch out of low beam HID's to some slightly higher temp bulbs next week. Now about those aftermarket wheels...

What does Xpel cost? I haven't called here to get a quote yet.

Depends on the installer, materials, and coverage. I typically do a 1/2-3/4 hood with leading edges wrapped, 1/2 fenders, full bumper, A pillars, mirrors, door cups, rocker panels (on my vehicles without splash guards), and top part of back bumper. All windows tinted to 20% with Llumar films. Typically costs around $1200-$1600 for the jobs that I request.

I've got a pile of accessories to install, but I'm waiting for it to stop raining. I did get this Mopar hitch plug installed though! :)

Waiting for nushield to arrive. I drove my wife's van for the first time last night and the HID system leaves much to be desired. Waiting for lighting stuff to arrive.

Ordered 22 x 9 +35 Ace Alloy Devotions drilled to 5 x 127. Working on tires in 255/35R22 and TPMS sensors. After this, I'm done...
