I swear, whenever I mention that it would be awesome to have a 4WD van (especially one with a 6.0L diesel like this) everyone starts cracking the "in a van, down by the river" jokes. I seriously challenge you to make those jokes when I pull up in this fantastically awesome E-Series that sits on 38-inch tires. The U-Joint Off-Road converted van rocks a Dana 60 axle up front with 14.5-inch brake rotors to stop the literally massive 38-inch tires The custom built front bumper houses a 16.5k Warn winch, along with a 20" Rigid LED light bar, while the interior has been built for an ARB fridge (not included) and everything you need to spend a great deal of time in the back country.
The front of the van has twin Bilstein 5160 remote-reservoir shocks.
The rear of the van also has a custom built bumper.
Yes, this van has 38's. Mickey Thompson 38/15.50/20 MTZ's to be exact.
The back of the van is already built out for all of your camping needs and features an onboard 12 gallon water tank.
Even though the ARB Freezer-Fridge isn't included, we'd recommend that you purchase one as it's already setup for one.
Here's what the seller had to say about the vehicle:
I bought this van brand new in 2005 and proceeded to built it into the ultimate 4wd van. This van has a Ujoint Offroad 8" lift with a Dana 60 front axle from Dynatrac that is equipped with F550 knuckles (14.5" brake rotors) Crossover steering with Lee hydraulic ram assist and a custom power lock front differential. 35 spline axle shafts. The rear axle is a Sterling 10.5 equipped with a Detroit Locker. Shocks are Bilstein 5160's front & rear with a custom dual front shock hoop. Warn VTC onboard air with a 2.5 gallon tank and quick disconnects on both bumpers. Bumpers are custom front & rear and the front is equipped with a Warn 16.5K winch and Viking synthetic winch line, Rigid 20" LED light bar and a Warn power plug. NV271 transfer case with 1350 CV driveshafts front & rear and 1410 yokes at the axle. The entire cargo floor has been coated with Line-X as well as the lower quarter panel behind the rear tires.
Engine has had an EGR cooler delete and a custom programmer from DP Tuner. Oil changed every 5K with valvoline or motorcraft oil & filters, fuel filter every 10K. Every tank of fuel has had RBP additive in it! All maintenance done by me! The exhaust is from RBP, 4" stainless with cat delete.
