Should not be hard to remove. If you cut them I think they are around 1k each. Seems high. You can try reaching out to the upfitters that do the camper vans. I see that they trim them. If it were me and I wanted to trim I might look at salvage yards to see if I could find replacements.Has anybody removed or cut these rear panels. I also am trying to create more space in the back of a passenger for some slide outs. I dont mind cutting but it would be nice to be able to just remove them. I notice air bags in the upper pillar and some speakers and 12V outlets. Is there anything else to worry about behind the panels. I would also like to remove the rear air vent. I am using the van as a toy hauler I would have bought the cargo but got a good deal on the passenger.
