97 Ford E350 7.3 Diesel



Well this is what I ended up getting. It's a Advanced 4x4 coversion with the interior done by Van Specialties. It has 40k on it and is in pretty much mint condition. I would like some advice as to tires and what to do about replacing the Advanced 4 wheel conversion with some other conversion. Or should/could I live with what is already hear for a 4wheel drive conversion.
I need advice on upgrading the the 4X4 is what I'm asking for, sorry to ramble.



So far all I know is it's getting an Espar heater...

Thanks for the advice.

dude, you gotta give us more pix and a list of mods! looks like a nice pu either way though. congrats!

what dont you like about the advanced 4wd system that makes you want to change it?

as far as tires go, do a search. there are numerous current tire threads going and all of them are full of good info that will help make a tire decision on your specific needs. i went with the toyo at2 and am happy overall, but i really dont have much to compare my purchase to as this was my first set of tires purchased specifically for the van.

Re: 97 Ford E350 7.3 Diesel

I've got a '92 E350 with an Advanced 4 wheel drive conversion. One of the drawbacks of my conversion is the lack of room for larger tires. Depending on how things changed or didn't change with Advanced between '92 and '97 you might have the same issues. The tire at full lock and suspension compression will hit the body at the rear of the wheel well.

Re: 97 Ford E350 7.3 Diesel

I wasn't trying to knock Advanced, I am just looking to pimp it out/beef it up if at all possible.
I have solar panels for the top that are not installed, and like I said will be getting an Espar heater.
In the spring will figure out what else to put in it.
We name all our vehicles, thus far this one is going by ChuckWagon.
