Absolutely!

Yes, you can! We use all factory hinges when installing the ramp system, so the doors can be re-installed if you decide to sell your van.

We are currently filming instructional videos for each of the ramp systems to help with the installation process. We have 2 videos that are currently available for the ProMaster cargo van, and will be working on instructional videos for the Sprinter and Transit cargo vans in the months to come.

No. All parts come with the ramp system. The only items you will need for installation are your tools, and a little bit of mechanical aptitude.

There are 2 grease fittings on the ramp system. One on each side at the bottom left, and bottom right of the ramp door. They should be greased 1-2 times per year based on your usage.

Yes. There are 2 sets of rubber weather stripping in place. The first one is from the factory where the doors are removed. We designed our frame to fit against the factory OEM weather stripping so it provides an excellent seal. The second weather stripping has been installed on the ramp frame where the ramp closes against the frame. This provides excellent protection from water from seeping into the interior of the van.

You can add anything you want; however, you may void the warranty and or remove any and all liability that is issued with the ramp system. Safety is paramount with our ramp systems, so follow all recommended guidelines when using the ramp system.
