    still a few hundred projects away.
    but ive had some parts fall into my lap.
    OBS ball joint D60, and a complete set of superduty axles.
    after the SD is done, ill have a 4wd 4R100
    but I do have a divorced NP205.

    so basically im building a 4 wd shagin wagon.
    couple of questions im looking for is:
    steering box.
    as this thing is getting a 4" lift, im gonna need a pitman arm.
    what do these boxes interchange with? are they E series only?

    I must admit, I havnt even gotten under the rig and checked it out, ive had it for 3 yrs lol
    its my back up vehicle and runs (.)(.)

    plans of installing a small shitter/shower. a stove, and a bed.

    Vans are awesome. Diesel vans are double awesome. 4WD diesel vans are triple awesome. This isn't just my opinion: take a look at how the Quigley vehicles hold their value. I think I'd take a look at what the Quigley Sportsmobile guys do as a reasonable starting point. I love hydraulic steering too, but it only seems reasonable in really big stuff.

    The only part of vans that scare me is everything seems to be a true horror show to work on, so you get extra points for not being scared!
