Somebody had posted the video here or on expo some time back. I'm thinking you saw it.

Re: SMB story with link to forum

I didn't even come that close in 2005. Mine was 109K in 12/05. Even if I deleted the 4x4 conversion I would have still been around 94K but W/O the 4x4 I also wouldn't have the same wheels tires or bumpers either. I don't think any one of those vehicles in the video were priced like the video suggests. Maybe a 2WD or a stripped down 4x4 could.

Re: SMB story with link to forum

In 2004, mine was $55K for 2wd. Van $25K SMB conversion $30K. 4wd was $15K including 46G tank and bumper and wheels/tires(ebay). I'm thinking I might be able to get close to it for $80-90K, but with a V10, not a diesel.

Real problem is I like my van and don't really want to get a new one.

Mike
