Ramp Up the Vamp

May 12, 2011

So, Scrublade, Temecula, Calif., had been monster garaging a 1994 one-ton Dodge B350 automatic van with a 5.9L V8 engine. The folks there then decided to build it out -” and up -” transforming it into a traveling freestyle motocross ramp.

The team cut off the back of the van, then spliced a freestyle ramp into the existing shell of the van. A wicked engineering feat, wouldn’t you say?

The bottom part of the ramp folds up to allow driving. When the Vamp reaches its motocross destination the team parks it, drops the stabilizers and riders are ready to hit the ramp.

Scrublade had Richer Racing handle the custom fabricated folding motorcycle ramp and rear bumper.

LED lights were added. The Vamp took a flat black satin paint with added custom graphics.

Participating companies that helped Scrublade pull this transformation off included the following: Scrublade windshield wipers; Rancho Suspension‘s RS9000 (rear) and RS5000 (front); K&N Intake and oil filter; Hellwig rear sway bar; 22×9.5 (Satin Black) offroad wheels from Mamba Wheels on 265/35R22 Delinte tires; Odyssey batteries; Steel Rubber Products’ weather stripping; and a custom flooring from BedRug.

The Tint Shop took care of the window tinting and 1 Day Wraps installed and printed the stickers.
