Interesting--------says last bid was $1800 some 10 days ago---wonder if that's current? How much longer does this sale go on?

At or close to $1800 that would be a good buy if someone had a body that could be swapped over. There are some salvageable parts on the crashed van but most of it below the belt line, the driveline obviously the best part.

It’s a “future date” which means you can bid but the actual auction date is not yet set

Hmmm... that looks like a pretty hard roll, the top looks tweaked. It doesn't appear to have much of a camper interior, "Bio-chemical spill' in the ad might mean the porta potti opened up and dumped. Then it sat. No high-dollar bumpers, no winch, rack, or lights. You don't know if the frame is tweaked or an axle (unlikely, but possible) is bent. Seems like a risky gamble to me.

This brings back memories of my sad and totaled. My feels go out to whomever.

The left rear wheel is flat. I wonder if that was the cause of the roll or a result of it. Recall in my case thats the wheel I lost and I'm so very very grateful we didn't roll.

I believe the $ is in the 4x4 kit.. easily 10-15k in savings.. on top of that(pun intended) if the SMB top is good that’s another 6-10k potentially. I know these numbers are high but if you’re building your own huuge cost savings.

Just spotted another bonus... I think those are solar panels on the roof, I may be wrong.
And on top of that it’s a pure sale so if no one bids higher than the current $1800 that’s what it’ll sell for
Ps have no intentions on playing on this as it’s too far.

“Bio-chem” could mean porter pot spill but more than likely it’s just some blood remnants from the accident.

If one looks at the interior pic of the van the canvas doesn’t look like it’s properly folded which probably tells me there’s more issues with the top than it appears.

Tell me about it .. 2 years ago this month I flipped a vehicle in Midland, Texas... not something I would want to relive.
