Hercules gets Aluminess Bling
If you're new to the blog and don't know the history of Hercules (yes, the van has a name. It's a judgement free zone here), you can get up to speed by reading here first. If you already follow Overland Gear Guy and follow Hercules' adventures, or if you simply want to know about Aluminess products, keep reading. :)
I first learned of Aluminess gear from friends at Sprinter to the Finish. They have lived in their van full time for some time and the accessories they use have definitely had time to be put to the test being driven back and forth across the country.
Last week I ventured to San Diego to see Aluminess for some accessories. Hercules got their front bumper, rear bumper, Deluxe Rear Storage Box, spare tire rack, modular roof rack, nerf bars, ladder. The finished look exceeded all expectations.
I roll with so much gear, half isn't *really* necessary until it is. I know too well how quickly certain gear is a life-saver when I (or another vehicle) are stuck. So where do you store it? It was a no brainer to give Hercules some extra rear storage.
I went back and forth wether I really wanted and would use a fixed ladder. I bit the bullet and went for it.... and so glad I did.
Well that's enough reading, I'll step back and let you drool over the Hercules/Aluminess goodness.
Without further ado, here are the "after the Aluminess touch" pictures.
