Lift kit, aluminess, method wheels...

Saw this posted in the San Diego CL. Great deal for someone looking for a 2wd lift, wheels, and some aluminess bits as a complete package. Can probably part out the van and make most of your money back too.

Thatís a steal. The owner must be totally frustrated with it and just wants it gone.

"Cons: Blown head gasket"

Still, a good deal for someone willing to deal with that. In today's economy that eliminates a lot of buyers and will drive the price down.

Does anyone have any experience with the CNG vans? Other than coming across the differences in the service manuals?

A few issues, the head gasket, if it's a 5.4 or 4.6 is difficult to get to on a van but doable. The bigger issue is the CNG not to many are in the dessert and you can not carry Gerry cans of CNG. You could set it up for dual fuel ?possibly? like propane and gas pick up trucks are but not sure. I've been told the injectors on the CNG are bigger so as long as the cpu can be told of the difference then maybe it is dual-able (get it)! That motor though will go over 3k no carbon and oikl change intervals are 2-3k miles more. I have a pickup and love paying $1.78 a gallon. If you buy it to car pool that will be over in Jan 1 2019 ! Some dumbass bought off politician pass a bill in Cali that only electric or low emissions vehicles 2016 or newer allowed. I think Tesla bought them or the big three to push electric!
