***SOLD**2001 Quigley 7.3l DIY Sportsmobile 140k Asking $20k

I never thought this day would come, but I'm parting with my van. It just doesn't work for our new little one and family. I bought this rig over four years ago and I've been tinkering with it ever since. We love it, but we just closed a deal on a Limited Excursion of the same year with the same motor. Please refer to my gallery for any pics. So...

Powertrain
7.3L Powerstroke that just turned 140,000 miles
Always starts in the cold
Runs flawlessly, has no leaks and doesn't smoke or burn oil excessively
Black Widow ceramic coated bellowed up pipes
Been running with Rotella T6 5w-40 for over two years now
Religious with the fluid and filter changes and coolant additive
CCV delete that exits into the stock exhaust
Newer 130 amp alternator
Homemade cold air intake that breathes through a hood scoop and K&N
Bullydog 6 position chip
Averages 14mpg

Drivetrain
Original 4R100 Transmission that works flawlessly
6.0L Transmission cooler and Magnafine filter
Rear Dana 60 full floater with 35 spline Yukon 4130 Axles
Front Dana 60 Kingpin with Timken hub bearings
4.56 Nitro gears with Timken rebuild kits
Tractech Electrac Locking Differtentials in both axles--super awesome!
Rear steel wheel correction spacers
American Racing Nitro wheels that have been powdercoated black
285/75/16 BFG D's
BW 1356 Transfer Case
U joints are all in great shape

Suspension
Upgraded Quigley tubular steel torque arms
Rancho 9000's
Supersprings SSC-31 front coils
Rear add-a-leafs

Exterior
Rust free!
Bushwacker flares
Carr steps
Self installed Sportsmobile Penthouse top from a 92 donor rig
Side window from same donor rig
Homemade rear spare tire rack and jack/axe rack
2 85w solar panels with MPPT controller and deep cycle battery

Interior
Flexsteel captains chairs for driver and passenger
Chateau rear bed bench with factory brackets
Trucker's fridge that draws 3 amps
Alpine touch screen deck with ipod input
Alpine component speakers in the front doors
4 Alpine 3 way speakers in the rear
McIntosh 6 way amp
JL audio sub and amplifier
Some Sportsmobile door panels and trim pieces from the 92 donor
Stinger Roadkill sound deadening material on entire floor and doghouse
1/2" plywood subfloor covered with carpet
Autometer pillar with gauges (Egt, pyro, and tranny temp)
Cobra CB

Sportsmobile things from the 92 that aren't installed
Norcold 12v/120 fridge
Two burner stove
New water tank and new Whisperking pump
Battery controller
Lights with LED bulbs
Wave heater
Small propane tank and plumbing
Small stainless sink

The bad things to mention which are all cosmetic and pics in the gallery
Rear bumper has plenty of dings
Penthouse is poor cosmetically, but works great and doesn't leak
Driver door has been dinged at the corner
Side door on the passenger side has a funky spot
Windshield is cracked, but I might replace that soon
Rear door is cracking at the upper mounting bolts

...so
Feel free to ask any questions or PM me and there are pics in my gallery, although some show the winch, lights and bumper that aren't included.

The pics I have are big enough to be rejected by the thread, but they go into the gallery just fine. Please refer to my gallery by clicking the "gallery" button at the bottom of my original post. Thanks.

Re: Solid 2001 Quigley 7.3l DIY Sportsmobile 140k Asking $22

I took all day, but I finally got some more pics downloaded to my gallery. As of now it looks like I'm going to take the stereo, cb, winch, and hella lights for my Excursion. That's unless someone say's "I'll take it". I'll reduce the price accordingly. The stereo from the Excursion will fit right in the van, so it will have a factory 6 disc changer. The Toyos might be coming off too and they'd be replaced with some decent 285/75/16 E range BFG AT's. All that being said, my new price would be $18,000 and I'd be pretty firm at that. Note, I do still have a ton of the camping gear that was in it. 2 burner stove, Wave heater and small propane tank, sink, pump, water tank, lights, Norcold fridge and some other misc. I could knock a little more off the price and sell that stuff separately on ebay or the forum. Thanks to those who have been looking and feel free to keep the questions coming. Laters.

Re: Solid 2001 Quigley 7.3l DIY Sportsmobile 140k Asking $22

Not going to lie, I think you might be missing a piece of trim or something on the left, near the top...

If I were buying based on pictures, I'd want to know what's under the dash mat and see the PH up from the inside.

I'm also curious about the story- like how exactly the "insulation inspection portal" came about on the passenger side, where the top came from. Overall it looks like a lot of trim issues, not bad at all if you're looking for a homebuild PH which is a good combo. And it's already 4x4... makes me wish I had time for a project van. HA! That's a funny thought now, but seriously it looks like a great buy to me.

Re: Solid 2001 Quigley 7.3l DIY Sportsmobile 140k Asking $22

I totally agree. I used to have the inside completely campered out. The inspection portal is from where the Norcold fridge used to sit. Once we had our kiddo we realized there was no safe place to put a kid seat, so I removed the "guts" and installed the bench seat. I was going to remove all the paneling and redo the interior, but I never got around to it. So, as advertised the interior is in poor shape. If you noticed that the original trim color of the van is gray and the Sportsmobile trim is brown, hence the reasoning behind the brown dash cover. Underneath it is a perfectly fine dash. Thanks for the inquiry, I really don't mind. This van is mechanically solid. I would drive it to the end of the world with confidence. I'll try to post some pics of inside the top soon. Laters.

I haven't had any real bites yet and this is a must sell situation, so lets make a deal!

You know that someone could pay $10,000 to Sportsmobile for a new top, some interior finishing and furnishings and be way ahead of the game. This van is SOLID and unbelievable offroad and in the snow. There's been interest, but no offers yet. I also have it listed on the Wyoming Craigslist, so a search for Quigley should get you my most recent ad, or this http://wyoming.craigslist.org/cto/3722824394.html TTT!
