*SOLD*2004 SMB EB50 Diesel 4x4

I have toiled long and hard about selling our beloved SMB and have decided to put it out there. We have thoroughly enjoyed this rig and quite honestly if it doesn’t sell I might be relieved (I know, I'm not much of a salesman). Life changes are the only reason we are considering parting with the “Zombie Killer”. We have spent nearly 200 nights in it, in some of the most amazing country the west has to offer.

2004 Ford/Sportsmobile 4x4 EB50 Diesel ONLY 69,000 miles $58,000

Engine:
6.0L Powerstroke Turbo Diesel
New water pump & serpentine belt at 68k
Coolant Filter
*All filters and fluids changed religiously. Since I bought it at 22k miles I have consistently run Cetane boost and serviced the EGR valve.
*EOT/ECT deltas are within factory specs!!
Scanguage II included
*This motor has only had the turbo rebuilt. No other issues.

Drivetrain SMB 4x4:
Dynatrac Dana 60 front with newer ball joints
Dana 70 Full Float rear with limited slip 4:10 (excellent upgrade)
Atlas II transfer case
New rear brakes @67k
Dual steering stabilizers

Exterior:
Aluminess Rear Bumper with B/U lights, spare tire carrier, large tray and 2 transverse bike mounts
Driver/pass side steps
Large Yakima Cargo carrier
Yakima tracks and rack
Kyocera 135 watt hard mounted solar panel
Raptor lined PH top.
Aluminess side ladder (drivers side)
Trailready front winch bumper (no winch) w/tow shackles
(2) KC 150 watt off road lights (in bumper)
Fender vents (functional)
Fiamma awning
110v outlet
Lifeline 220ah 4d marine battery (new in 2011)
47 gallon fuel tank
7 gallon propane tank
Receiver hitch
315/75/16 Toyo MT 10 ply Load range E tires
16x8 American Racing rims (Plasti-Dipped black)

Interior:
EB 50 floorplan
Electric lift PH w/custom upholstered and insulated ceiling.
LED & Fluorescent lighting
4cuft Norcold 110/12v fridge
Marine flooring
16 gallon freshwater tank
7 gallon grey water tank
6 gallon Suburban propane water heater
Furnace Suburban 12k btu
2000 watt TrippLite inverter
Sink w/PUR water filter
Microwave (can be reinstalled but is included)
Swivel front captain’s chairs
Insulated window shades
Front window curtain
Upgraded Kenwood Stereo w/amplifier and subwoofer
Garmin Nuvi GPS
Stowable table
Exterior shower wand
Underfloor storage (locking)
Weathertec floor mats

I installed additional insulation wherever possible in this van because we live in Colorado and camp year round. I also re-routed the water lines to all be interior instead of in the walls to help prevent freezing. As mentioned above I recently insulated and upholstered the ceiling. It turned out great! I have also made an effort to “black out” (paint black or replace with black) almost every outlet, switch and electrical panel.
I have been meticulous about maintenance with this rig because we travel far off of the beaten path. Aside from a water pump issue this vehicle has never stranded us or let us down.
All incandescent lights have been switched to LED’s All receipts available for all work performed.
Exhibits general wear and scratches for a SMB that has been used as designed. The term ”Desert Pinstriping” is fitting. I can send pics of any details that could be deemed unsavory. Please PM or email.

Included items:
Hi lift jack
leveling blocks
shovel
Taller bottle jack
Scangauge II
Garmin Nuvi GPS
City fill hose
30 amp shore power cord
Microwave

Re: 2004 SMB EB50 Diesel 4x4

Nice rig!!! Should have no trouble selling that. My question for you; With 315 tires, did you change the wheels? In one of your pictures it appears the rims are aluminum (not black..) What wheel size did you use for the 315's, I'm considering changing my tires from the 285's to the 315's and am not sure if I need to change the rims too...

i ran a buddies 315's on the same wheels as salines in place of my spent 285's for one roadtrip this last feb. i have a stock bumper and the tires in front just barely hit it on evey turn. didnt damage either, but im sure over time it would.

Re: 2004 SMB EB50 Diesel 4x4

What color do you call that green? How's the Raptor Liner holding up?

I've always enjoyed looking at your great pics. Someone will score a very nice rig.

Good luck.

Enough Water, Food, Petrol, Spouse and dog are all this is needed for a great time.

This pic speaks to that.

Great pic. Where was it taken???

Looks like a slice of heaven.
