Joined SMB nation

I just picked up a used but well cared for SMB. Im really happy with it so far.




This van is new to me but vannin isnt. Ive owned a 76 4x4 G30 for the past 6 years and its served me well.



We've driven it to Illinois and back from CA http://www.thevanpires.com/chicago-or-bust/ and this summer just did a road trip of the PNW http://www.thevanpires.com/pnw-roadtrip/ and lots of local camptrips to ride dirtbikes with friends or to enjoy hot springs and swimming holes.

Boy are modern conveniences like AC, power windows, fuel injection and overdrive a nice treat.. oh yah and the SMB penthouse and interior arent to shabby

Theres not a whole lot i wanna do to it other than get out and go camping and enjoy it for now. Id like to get a UJOR 4x4 kit under it in the next year.

Just wanted to stop by and say hello ive been lurking around for a while.
