Only 492000 mi.

And it's a Javier, what could possibly go wrong?

I haven't seen many complaints about Javier vans converted the last few years. Build enough of anything, and eventually you'll figure it out... Of course, buyer beware. Post-purchase support is probably non-existent.

Also, at least they're being honest with mileage. 10 years ago the mileage on the vans being sold converted by them, were definitely too good to be true. I was pretty sure they getting cluster-swapped. If all the running gear has been refreshed, the chassis and body a good indefinitely, assuming no salt exposure.

Well, he's always railing about the million mile motor, buy this one and you're half way there

UJoint just posted some pictures of a Crow van that just recently arrived. Different gear ratio in front and rear!

So far we've got a bone dry front axle with 3.73s, 3.55s in the rear axle, shocks hand tight.

You're such a worrywart... the different ratios thing is only a problem when you put it into 4wd. How many customers will ever do that? (while it's still under warranty)

Does he install Atlas transfer cases? You can switch from RWD to FWD just never 4wd. Customer must have said he was going to regear so no worries.

Think they come with a 1 mile warranty. Just far enough you cant see them laughing on the way to the bank.
