Our SMB

Were fairly members here, so I thought wed document the changes were making to our van. Its a 2004 E350 Quigley 4x4 Sportsmobile. We sold our FJ Cruiser to buy this since well be traveling full time after retirement. It was in great condition when we bought it, but some areas needed beefing up. This was it the day we bought it.
The first thing needed was bigger tires. It had a little bit of tail wagging the dog that needed addressing.

Next, after several recommendations, I took it to Jared Bratcher at Deviant Customs in Edmond, Ok. He installed the Agile Off Road R.I.P. kit to improve the suspension. He also installed the ARB OBA system.



Next some armor was needed. I had som special needs for the bumpers, so Jared is building them also. The front is close to being complete.

Hell also be installing the Superwinch 12.5 Talon winch.


More to come.

Agree with everyone- great color and look. Is the black pvc tube in the rear for black water hose or is that some sort of storage?

Thats the drain for the shower grey water. There is a white pvc tube for hose storage. Most showering will be done outside though. Inside is pretty tight for showering.
