As full size cargo vans like the Transit and Sprinter become increasingly popular, smart storage and organizational solutions become ever more important. If you have a cargo van - whether for work, play, or some semi-attainable combination of the two - the chances are high that the ability to efficiently utilize all that space is close to number 1 on your priority list. The cargo bays on these vans are huge, and a great foundation on which to build a totally bespoke vehicle; because the DECKED system turns the otherwise static, unused space at the bottom of that bay into accessible storage, it's the...

Dr Decked Why Dont Men Read The Instructions

Dr Decked Why Dont Men Read The Instructions

Now Dr. DECKED is not a real medical doctor, psychologist or otherwise, and unfortunately I have never played one on television either, so I don’t have substantial residual income from the Screen Actors Guild from long term reruns of a TV series broadcast in a foreign country.
