    Transit AWD vs Express AWD vs Transit Quigley: which one for me?

    My mirror did that this summer. Quite a surprise to find it hanging by the wires! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Transit AWD vs Express AWD vs Transit Quigley: which one for me?

    @kudzu , your van sounds like it's a little old and rough. I can see why you might not be thrilled with it at this point. I'm sure with a bunch of work to chip away at that list of issues it could be back up to speed. But it's always going to be an old van that is built with even older tech...

    Goal Zero Yeti 400 Experiences?

    I received the 6mm extension cord and it works! I don't understand why but it does. I haven't run it too long but it was hooked up and running for a couple hours. The ARB was already cold so it was just keeping temp while inside my house. So not a big load on it yet, but seems promising.

    Goal Zero Yeti 400 Experiences?

    My Yeti 400 (not Lithium) won't run an ARB fridge from the 12v port, but will from the 120v. I reached out to GZ and their response was "This issue may be related to a surge, which can be mitigated with a 6mm extension cord to use in conjunction with the 6mm to cigarette adapter." They are...

    GM fullsize AWD Van Info thread

    @njason99 I think the rear part number commonly used is 24-221948. But, with pulling out the overload leaf and losing some height, that could have length issues too - I don't know.

    GM fullsize AWD Van Info thread

    @Snailstrail I assume you have the composite headlights? I was able to get a very minor improvement with the composite headlights from a bulb upgrade based on recommendations from the Candlepower forums. Be careful of any LED conversions or 'upgrades'. Candlepower forums is a great place to...

    New Tires for Chevy Express 1500, to Lift or Not?

    I have 265 BFG a/t on my stock wheels at stock ride height. If it rubs it's very occasional and hasn't left a mark to prove it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New here in need of some direction

    I also think adding 4x4 would be a lot more expensive than finding one already with it. It's up to you to know if you really even need the 4x4. If you can deal with 2wd and a locker and lift you will save a ton of money and open up a bigger van market to choose from. You can get a van that is...

    You will find that the Ford has way better support for parts for camper stuff. Chevy, especially earlier ones, are very limited. Most builders do Fords. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
