    Oh yeah. A buddy of mine bought a Prada from there I believe. He is happy with it. I received my VIN and got plates on mine yesterday. Now just waiting on my title from the state and that’s that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Deshet, It’s full time 4wd. Rear axle looks beefy and is a traditional solid axle on coil springs. Don’t know what the front end is but it’s an IFS setup.

    First impressions are good. Fun vehicle to drive and that 3.0 turbo diesel has more more power than that van needs around town. It’s geared really low so I don’t see it passing cars on I 25 but so far so good. Support is thin out there and that engine combo in the 1993 Hiace was only just or...
