These guys make me feel better! 283,000 miles here, and working on a 4x4 conversion as well. Glad I'm not the only one dumping money into a van with nearly 300K on it!

Switched to Amsoil at 7500miles and never drained the pan till 500k. Just kept sending in oil analysis every 12,500. Would replace the filter and top off with new 15w-40
Tranny serviced every 50k with new filter. I would remove the return line to the cooler and run 1 qt out, stop motor, top off, and do gain till new oil came out. I know that I will need a rebuild sometime.
Van towed a 28' center console boat till 03 then a 32' Center console boat till this April. Total weight 24,142lbs when weighed in April.
Van is in body shop now getting a new coat of black paint, interior rebuild, shoes 305-70-16, and injectors "baby swamps" and glow plugs, 4" exhaust and an intercooler set up. Hopefully she will last me another 500k
Now THAT is impressive. But I'm confused on the oil, you are saying you never changed it between 7500 and 500,000, just topped it off when replacing the filter?
How did you fit an intercooler into the van?
