New To The Fold

Hello all.
Lurked for a while and its time to post up.
Just getting comfortable with my new E350 QuadVan.
Thanks John and Blaine. Very sweet rig.
Third van I have owned, second custom.
A Penthouse top comes soon - my appt time has been set.
As a NW owner, Van Specialties will be doing the interior.
My rig will not be the usual SMB, rather a 4 captains puller.
Looking for a long ownership and many questions to boot!

V10, manual hubs, floor shift transfer, posi rear, E locker front, 4.10's, air bags, winch.

Cheers, Friends.

Sliding door too, that's on the rarer side. Take lots of photos!

Re: New To The Fold

Welcome! Seems that the NW is catching up with the California SMB population. Where is Van Specialties operating?

Nice rig! I'm impressed with how cleanly the winch fits in the stock bumper.

Re: New To The Fold

That winch is stealth!!! Nice work.

Thanks for mentioning van specialties. I am going to call them and see if they can retrofit my rear bench seat for headrests (RB50) or some other safety items for my kids.

Re: New To The Fold

SWEET...mines a Quadvan with a slider..love it. Did the interior myself so it is rather spartan. Isn't it nice to spend your $$$ with folks who are craftsmen?
Nice color. Please send pics of the interior as it comes together.

Re: New To The Fold

You are correct dhally. Yes you on the 640ADV & my Scrambler, both getting parts in Enterprise lol.
I plan to be in Hells Canyon next year.

Van Specialties is in Lake Oswego (Portland Or). Established and a viable alternative to others.
I have a clean idea for the interior which could be finished by Christmas (I've been good this year ;-) )
A slider door for in the city use when you can't open the side by sides...

Penthouse roof going on 10/25!

Currently going through Lassen/Tahoe & Death Valley on a no main roads tour.

Thanks for the compliments!
