1998 E350 4X4 7.3 with new front end- $21000

This van looks pretty clean. Has the 08+ front end on it so it looks newer than it is, but has the 7.3 with only 125k. Doesn't say who did the 4x4 conversion. ***SALVAGE TITLE***

Nice looking rig!

Anyone have an idea what nerf bars those are? They look similar to N-Fab, but I'm 99% sure they are not. Anyone?

Thanks,

Chris

Javier built the Nerf Bars in TJ would be my guess.

Buy a well used shuttle van or a wreck at the auction... $4,000

Install used Axle, T-Case, Drive Shafts, Wheels/Tires... from a 2005 on up SuperDuty... $2,000
Hang a late model front end on an old van... $1,500
Paint and adorn with mild steel tube accessories... $2,000

Sell for$18,000.

You have to remember just how cheap used/stolen SuperDuty parts are in Baja and how cheap the labor and shop costs are.

He will convert a van for less than $7,000, I am told.

I think so, but this van had the entire front end converted to the new style, so I guess the mirrors come along for the ride.

Except the new front end never came with the new SuperDuty mirrors. Looking at the pics, Javier must have somebody making some new mirror bases with matching trim covers. It looks good!

I have to admit, its a good looking van. I also have to admit, I'd be nervous that the first time I pulled it into 4 wheel drive the transfer case would fall off...that could be totally unfair though. It looks really clean and the miles are low.
