2000 Chinook Baja 4x4

We purchased this 2000 Chinook Baja 4X4 about a month ago in Portland. So far we have been adventuring and camping on the logging roads around Mount Hood. We followed the SM Forum classifieds for a couple years before we found this truck. Conversion by Quigley with Dana 60 front axle, coil/shock suspension and King Pin steering set up. I have the build sheets thanks to a helpful forum member and am developing a phone relationship with Sabrina Grace the product manager at Quigley. We added a new Fantastic Fan, outdoor shower valve, Bilstein shocks and a new Sky Walker 7000 steering stabilizer. I just drove it to Boulder, Co. and averaged 12 mpg at 70 mph. (Triton V-10) Looking forward to learning more about the rig.
Cheers!

Great Rig! I also believe you managed to get the best body paint scheme they produced - little classier than some of the other "far out" combinations. I like the light colored wood cabinetry also, compliments the rest of the vehicle.

Welcome! Check out the PDX Overlanders on Facebook. We have quite a few full size rigs, although not that many vans. We just had a big get-together at Mt. Hood this last weekend and will be camping together at the Toyo Tires Trailpass event in Hood River on Sept. 7th.
