Adventurevan 2.0

I just got word from the shipper that my van should deliver tomorrow!

wheels and tires showed up today, and my axles have been sitting in the driveway for a couple weeks now. can't wait to get underway.

current plan:

2000 ford e350 15 passenger club wagon
u-joint OR coil spring kit
Dana 60 and FF sterling 10.5 axles from a 2013 f350
69k 7.3L diesel
18"x10" fuel wheels
35x12.50x18 toyo MT
iss pro gauges
cooling mist water/methanol injection
dp tuner
full 4" exhaust
aluminess rear bumper with tire carrier and large cab
steel full replacement front bumper (forgot the brand, but it's on order)

still working out the roof rack plan...or maybe i'l skip it for now and add a pop top.

Went by the house to get the welding masks out to watch the eclipse and this was sitting inside my gates in my driveway

Congrats. I'm also eyeing that ride sitting behind the axles in your driveway.

that's my '47 gmc 1.5 ton cab and front clip (with title). hope to mount it on this chassis i built a while back...one of these days, but the VAN comes first!

i'll get one with the '71 bronc gratuitously in the background of another shot if you like...

van got delivered yesterday. was hoping to start on the conversion Saturday, but apparently, a tropical storm is hitting Friday morning, as sticking around through sunday....dammit.

also i just spent about $2000 on diesel performance parts such as: full exhaust, dp tuner, 1.0 a/r turbine housing, wicked wheel 2, non-ebv pedestal, fuel rail crossover, and some other stuff...she's gonna be a screamer.
