    Express/Savana Swing-out Tire Carrier DIY Starter

    Love everything about it. How far will you be able to open your doors once you have tires etc mounted? Probably not a full 180 degrees but past 90?

    Express/Savana Swing-out Tire Carrier DIY Starter

    Ok, now I get it. I was wondering how they’d mount up. I’m guessing those are factory holes you mounted the brackets to?

    Express/Savana Swing-out Tire Carrier DIY Starter

    Thanks Gramps, I dig it! My problem has been that I use my rear doors a lot and don’t want to have to open a second latch in addition to the door. I also want the doors to still open most of the way. Something connected to the door seemed to make the most sense but those are all cheesy and...

    The link just took me to the general page and I don’t do Facebook. Any chance you could post a photo of yours when you get it mounted?

    Boulder Off Road GM Van 4x4 Conversion

    I had a Quigley conversion with Agile Offroad RIP kit. New front coil springs, custom Fox shocks, drop bracket for the sway bar. Rode way better after I did that and better than most other 4x4 vans I’ve ridden in but still nothing like the IFS in my Chevy.

    Boulder Off Road GM Van 4x4 Conversion

    I’d suggest giving serious consideration to what your goals are. If you just want 4x4 with good off-road capability and the best on road performance then an ifs is the way to go. Weldtec is doing two different versions. My Quigley has a torsion bar GM truck set up and the ride is so much better...

    Requesting quiet....

    Third that, check your doghouse seal and how it’s seated. The Duramax is much quieter than either of the fairly recent Ford diesels. Mines an LML based LGH so slightly different, but it’s more quiet than my buddies 5.3 gas v8.

    Lifting a Quigley Chevy Bus

    You can add it retroactively but you have to take it to them to do the work. I asked about it before going to route I went. I’ve ad two Quigleys, both Ford and Chevy, and their customer service was always great. They had all the info on my ‘05 Ford I sold a few years ago so I bet they at least...

    GM fullsize AWD Van Info thread

    Been there....currently there sort of. I’m not sure you can add a half in but one thing I’ve done is to unscrew the sliding track from the inside, pull the track away from the body a bit, and essentially shim it from there with rubber or neoprene washers over the screws that are welded to the...

    Lifting a Quigley Chevy Bus

    I’m pretty confident you could get 2-3 inches of lift out of it easily and then run bigger tires adding a little more. Something more than that will involve new drop down brackets etc from Weldtec.
