Hi everybody,

Thanks for all informations

Re: Best shop for 4X4 conversion-

I can't really help you i don't think but i'll be watching closely. That's exactly what i want to do next, i'm more a fan of the Chevy long body than the Ford. I have a Ford 2wd right now.
Have you contacted Quigley or Quadvan (if they are still around)?
Most of the conversions i've ever seen are Ford.
Also, have you dropped a line over at the Expedition Portal? Lots more good van specific info over there. Good luck!

What's the price if you don't mind? I'm very interested in doing this someday as well.

Some have had some bad experiences with this outfit, and I'm sure they're described somewhere on here. I had my van converted about a year ago by Advanced, and they did a fine job, were friendly, and completed the job on time and under budget. I would recommend them and would use them again myself.

I have a Chevy Express 3/4 ton with a dura max and I have done all the research im going to do, and Advanced is here I'm going to get mine done.

The price is $11,000 with everything except tires and rims
I have been to there shop in Salt Lake City and they are all set up for the Chevys The had 9 chevys the just converted the day I was there. ( all 9 were small buses but still vans)

Good luck

Ron

Re: Best shop for 4X4 conversion-

Wow Ron, that's pricey, but your Duramax with 4WD will be the most wicked thing around IMO. I've got a Ford and am wondering if they're cheaper to do but i haven't called around. I'm gonna be doing my pop top first. Hey, i thought i remembered that you sold your van, or had it for sale. Did you change your mind?
