SALEM KROGER 4X4 ON MY NEW SMB

After a lot of reading and e mails back and forth to Craig at SK here is the list of my final selected options to their standard package.

285/70 R 17 Toyo Open Country A/T tires mounted on pro-Comp 17X 9 rims
Light Force 170 MM adjustable focus driving/fog lights
Tru-Trac gear drive front diff and 4.30 gear ratio
Bushwacker fender flares, inc altering ft and rear wheel wells
fabericate custom front sway bar disconnect
ARB air compresser with ARB rear air locker diff
Dana 60 full float rear axel with 4.30 gear ratio
Sk front receiver with twin 10,000 lb tow hooks mounted below front bumper (I have a rear receiver)
rear springs rearched and 2 leafs added

Everything works so well. I cannot believe what this SMB 4X4 can do.

Craig was so patient with his answers to all my questions.

Angel

Hi Angel
Sounds like you have a nice van.
Could you post some pictures?
I am curious about the front suspension set up.
How many more inches is the van raised with the new 4x4?

Thanks,

Zugg

Re: SALEM KROGER 4X4 ON MY NEW SMB

Salem Kroger put a 3 1/2 inch lift on it and coil springs in front. I also got larger tires. I did not measure when I picked up my van @ SMBW but now after the 4X4 it is 26 1/4 inches from the outside corner of the open driver door to the pavement.

The pictures are in "Show and Tell" / "Angel's new SMB"
