I'd like to have it converted to 4x4, Agile Offroad is so close. I need to take it down there to have them look it over and tell me what's possible at what $$$.
But I think I'll wait and test it out, see what the limited slip can do for now.

I got a great price on a cash deal, felt like I won the lottery! Let me just say that the guy selling was wealthy, lived in a big house on a tiny lot by the beach, had bought a new truck and his wife wanted the van gone.

This deal does reflect some things that need attention: The brakes needed the hydraulic control unit replaced, that's one of the most expensive parts in that system (now fixed). And the Starcool AC isn't working, which means the dash ac isn't working either. I'll try to get the AC fixed but my gut feeling tells me the Starcool system will be too hard/expensive and will have to be cut out. In any event I'll get the dash AC fixed, I've got a few months before that becomes a hot issue.

Yea the lay out was different, but the third captain chair is pretty sweet. I thought the icebox was kinda neat.

Congratulations! .....I bought a spare coil and have it in the van for those occasions like you just described......I'll probably never need it now that I have it...and an OBDII scanner.

I can't ID the SMB layout, something like an EB18? Doesn't seem to be a standard build.
Sweet van dude! Looking forward to the 4x4 conversion for some real action!
