Nice rig, and appears to be well executed, but I'm not quite seeing the $70K invested that would justify the $60K asking price.

Agreed. 50k seems to even be pushing it

Just throwing my .2 cents in here. The owner of this rig didn't buy the bare minimum to make this rig 4wd, he went above and beyond. So while it does look like the standard 4wd conversion, it is, just with all the best parts available.

But I may be biased as I helped MG with the conversion.

Agree. It's clear he went above and beyond in terms of parts, but also in his ExPo ad, he also mentions buying the rig for $20K which makes it even a further stretch to get to $70K.

Just curious, any idea how much the conversion cost?

You could ballpark the conversion at 20k, then there's the dynatrac, wheels and tires. Not sure what kind of differentials.

Then the four Sienna seats with bases. Aluminess front and back with all the trimmings and a winch.

I would never ever expect to recover my costs and time on my rig, there is just no way.

Garage
Van: $20,000
4x4: $20,000
Aluminess: $6,000
Winch: $1,500
Wheels/Tires: $2,000
Awning/Mounts: $500
Sienna Seats/Mounts: $2500
Interior Finish: $2000

So that's ~$55,000 not counting LED tailights for $280, 4 LED front bumper lights for ~$500, Dynatrac axle upgrade, etc.

I think he's probably asking for what it cost him to build. And I don't think that's crazy.

I would add.. other than the sliding door, that van is pretty sweet. Throw a CCV poptop on it and you'd have an awesome dual purpose van.

Don't forget that Ujoint tank. They are very nice and not at all cheap. That's probably another 1500-2000 including shipping.
