Mr Crow 4x4 anyone

I wonder if the seller is aware of Javiers reputation?

You can tell the quality and craftsmanship of their 4x4 kits by the care they took installing the rubber shift boot.

Chris at Ujoint frequently posts pictures of Crow's hacked up conversions and failed mounting points/broken frames.

I had one previously. The frame mounts looked good, but the steering geometry was off. It had pretty bad bump steer

I have a feeling a lot of the Crows vans are just glorified people haulers, they sorta fall in the same line as the bro trucks that are all over the place here in Colorado. They look the part (sort of) and spend 99% of the time on pavement. Plus the 4x4 geometry is always questionable for drive ability. I would hope that he's gotten better with his builds as it seems like the guy sells a lot of vans to the new and uninformed.

there was one on ebay a few weeks ago I was considering bidding on, and then when you looked at the odometer history it went from 290k to 165k then 152k backwards....seemed a little too sketchy. If there was one going backwards for dash change ok, but it went back twice, seller didn't have a good explanation for it.

There was a reason for that.

Word of advice... I would never consider biding on a crows van. It not really worth it... mostly from a safety stand point. Plus anyone can put lipstick on a pig...
