Re: 2005 Quigley E350

A stock van looks small when parked next to an SMB 4x4.
My SMB 4x4 looks small when parked next a typical UJOR 4x4. 37's are big!

Lookin' good. Kinda industrial with the frame ends sticking out like that.

Re: 2005 Quigley E350

Thanks Mike. For the time being, Chris will black out my bumpers and give it that blacked out look. I'll deal with upgrades on the bumpers when I can get caught up on the green backs! haha

Re: 2005 Quigley E350

That thing looks killer...wow...when are you going to go up and get it?

It really can not be said enough how great Chris and the guys at U Joint Off Road are to deal with, he really cares about each and every job large or small and every single customer...

Well everyone but me , he treats me like a distant adopted step second cousin...I even had to grind out brake rotor holes just to get directions to the freeway so I could go home when I was there last...just kidding (well not about the brake rotors) hes truly great and does very high quality work with excellent parts...and while I did have to grind holes I did get a ride in Vannaconda and got to buy dinner...

I would leave the bumpers Chrome for now as they would look good with the Dark Blue and those wheels...

Just cut off the corners on the front and be done with it until you decide to do something different.

OK Chris if you are going to paint the factory Chrome bumpers how do you get the paint to stay one?
Whats the Secret? I need it for my pealing grill...

And I'm not done with you Jamie!!!!! I already warned Marc @ XP that he'll be invaded by UJOR next month so he better be ready. 4 guys ready to finish a camper! (thats if you join us)

Re: 2005 Quigley E350

All the good things said about Chris and UJoint are not exaggerated. He has been in touch with me constantly letting me know about each and everything that he was doing with the van. Chris sends pictures regularly and makes you feel like you are right there with him. Timing is everything. Chris does NOT fart around. He has been on this thing hot and heavy just as he told me he would about 2 weeks after he got the parts ordered. No smoke blown up the old pud hole. He gives you good advice and tells you frank valid opinions rather than telling you what you want to hear. I'm tickled to death with all he has done.

Haha....okay Jamie...at least you got to ride in the Vanaconda!!!! I did get to take a picture of it though.

As to the bumpers....I don't know if y'all noticed my scoots.....I like my stuff black. The black on chrome comes from some of my biker experiences. I use Dupli-Color Truck Bed Liner. I have it on the black Hayabusa frame rather than powdercoating. It is flat black and fairly smooth. It will be applied after hitting it with some rough-em-up paper. It will etch itself into the crevices and pores. Pretty good stuff that you can get at a parts store.

Chris, next time you get bored, can you elaborate on the issue of Q- rotors? I'm stuck with them until you open your AZ shop.

Re: 2005 Quigley E350

Wow - the van looks awesome! I have an 08 Quigley and have talked to Chris about going to a 6" Ujoint suspension to get better clearance and ride, so I'd love to hear how it drives once you get it back. Sorry to hear about CCV's work, I had a problem with him last year also - can not recommend his work.

No problem, its pretty simple. And I should say that not ALL Q vans are like this, but all that I've seen using the 99-04 front axle. In order to re use the stock wheels and keep the 8 on 6.5" bolt pattern, Q changes the wheel studs in the front unit bearings and then machines the rotors to make it 8 on 6.5. It started life as 8 on 170mm. So...... If you have a unit bearing failure, or need rotors, you can't source these parts at ANY auto parts store. The rotors aren't a huge deal, you just have to drill them out. The unit bearings are a much larger issue if you have a failure.

So what I do is simply swap the unit bearings and rotors to the 8 on 170mm stuff. New wheels are required of course, so it worked out well for the MudHipy.
