What's your opinion

What do the van experts think this van is worth, I keep looking at it, I'm kind of interested, with the idea to U Joint it down the road.

Make sure it at least has the 5.4 v8 is my first thought with those tires and who knows what rear end ratio.

I think it's expensive considering it's a 2005 E150 with a lift. It definitely looks nice with all the accessories but if you plan on doing a Ujoint conversion down the road, I think you'll be spending more than if you were to buy a stock/clean E350 and converting it.

To answer your question about price, I think its $15k or less.

It's a 5.4 I haven't asked about the gearing, or whether or not it had a locker, it's a nice van, but I can't see 19 k, but, that's why I asked.

That's exactly what I thought, I do like the color though.

Roof rack is more united directly to the roof, not to the gutters. That will be a problem if you want a pop top. The mounting could also be a problem if it is heavily loaded. The van may already be at or near the GVW for an E150 due to all the upgrades.

I feel like an idiot, I never noticed that it's a 150, so, it doesn't matter anyway, thanks though, I have no intention of a pop top.

IMO
Seems a bit high for an 05, but compared to what my neighbors have spent on their '17 Transit (2wd) it's well less than 1/2 that cost.
Considering it's 13yrs old, converting it to 4wd will cost $$$ that you'll never get back if you ever decide to sell it.
I have a 2010 E350 EB, 85k miles and a 6" Weldtec lift I'd sell for the right price.... 4.30 gears......
