The van project

We recently bought a 1997 Ford e350 camper 4x4 van. The van appears to be in good shape, and has low miles on the 7.3 L Power Stroke diesel engine. The 4wd system was added by Advanced Four Wheel Drive Systems in Salt Lake City, Utah. U S Vans in Oregon made it into a camper van with a fiberglass high top. It will take some time and effort to make the modifications we want, but then it should be able to take us to the end of the dirt road and provide a functional and comfortable shelter for our adventures!

Yes, Thank you Black95! I intend to photograph and describe the gradual modification process. I am sure I will learn a lot from you and others on this forum!
