I'm back with a van

Hello all,
It's been a while since I've been on here and I miss it. After having a truck/slide in camper for 2 years I went in search of a van as my adventure rig. I missed the off road ability of a capable 4 wd van.
I found this 2003 7.3L EB 4x4 (Denver Fleet conversion)! It's a high mileage rig that has a newly rebuilt tranny and the motor was pulled and gone through. The 4wd system has almost no miles on it. It was a prison transport in Arizona in its past life.
A new blank slate to do my own build on.

Vans are good!

Interested in hearing more about the 4x4 conversion, they seem to be moving a lot of high mileage vans through there, but I haven't seen one in real life yet...
