Most definitely. QuadVan style setup but with bad radius arm and drag link angles. But the real giveaway is the half-angled rear ladder. Kinda his signature.

He probably searches them out because he knows the power the 7.3 has to blind potential owners of all the other problems.

I had a guy interested in buying my van and asked me what I thought about Javier's vans. I told him to steer clear and he said, " But look it looks so clean!" And proceeded to show me the photo of it on his phone... hopefully I talked him out of it.

I almost made the mistake of buying one from him before this forum and one of the testimonials on the Ujoint site educated me. I talked to him on the phone and was on my way down there when he sold it out from under me. Which, thank God.

So instead I bought a different 7.3 mess from a different misrepresenting seller. Doh.

Just ask Dig about his "adventure" driving it back for me. He wanted to kill me. And it damn near killed him.

He gets them because he buys base model cargo vans, with no cruise, power windows or door locks, and he buys some beat up ones too. I can find these all day long in the Southeast for anyone that wants one. They are usually less than 5k for a 200k +/- mile van. No way I would want one without the basic power options personally.
