03 EB E350 quigley 4x4, 5.4 v8, 67k miles, lots of upgrades!

Putting out some feelers on my van....

It is a 2003 quigley ford e350 4x4 5.4 v8 with 67k low miles, extended body. Not a sportsmobile but a lot of nice upgrades and a rather clean slate for your own conversion. Super reliable because in the last 7k miles I have professionally done the following....!

New spark plugs
New belts
New bushings
New filters
Lubed all bearings, driveshafts, etc...
New fluids- transfer case, both diffs, radiator, transmission, regular oil changes
Rebuilt transmission with Heavy duty torque converter and TUGGER kit (under warranty for 12k miles and bullet proof, same upgrade the diesel performance tow guys do...)shifts are tight and fast!
Aluminess front bumper, ladder, and swing arm tire carrier....expensive!
Custom valved fox shocks and coils from BAJASPORTSMOBILES 4x4 shop in CA (makes this thing drive like a dream.....waaaaay better than a stock quigley...it's fun to drive now
http://www.agileoffroad.com/
Custom aluminum wheels
Mechanic checked and inspected with all paperwork
RAAM audio mat sound insulation installed in all doors
Dynil home theatre sound deadener mat installed firewall to bumper....quiet ride!
Exercise mat flooring
Tow hitch and wiring (1500 lb tongue weight rated)
LED blinkers, brake lights and backup lights
Brakes were done @ 57k
New side door gasket

Interior was a cargo, I built a very simple and spartan insulated interior camper layout....wood paneling, eco insulation, bed platform, shelves, nothing special....easy to remove if you want to do the full camper appliance conversion...I added a sportsmobile swivel passenger seat!

The issues: tiny BB sized dings here and there, stock radio with no speakers currently, some clear coat scratches, tires are winter studded off road, good tread, studs are worn 245/75r16, upfront interior has some slight wear where the bulkhead was installed, slider door could use some love and lube.

Sunny salt free Colorado truck, NO rust, was a healthcare fleet vehicle before me, well maintained. 10-14 mpg at 75 mph....never offer road'ed, just some forest service dirt roads. Never towed...the hitch was installed for my dirt bike carrier. I use it for my wilderness catering business for young adult cancer survivors learning to rock climb.

I thought that was the same van. very unique color and pretty hard to miss, lol.

we were headed back to boise after a long weekend on the teton pass, but our van is white not silver...but it was super dirty (still is) so it may have appeared silver at 75 mph. we have a rack on the back that had 12 boards on it.

ya, i grew up on that pass. we were forced to, back then snowboards wernt allowed at resorts. kick myself in the ass for moving away from it everytime i go back. especially after midnight runs up there such a cool experience...

im jealous of any 3 month trip, especially around the nw. sorry to see youre parting with you van though. its a real eye catcher. i wont clutter up your fs add anymore, good luck finding a new home for KrishnaVan

Good luck with the sale, but while a Unimog has a total 'cool' factor, I don't think you'll find one as drivable as your Quigley, and you sure won't be doing 75mph. Keep the Quigley.
