I have been planning/saving for a Ford 4x4 Sportsmobile by 2014. I see Ford is discontinuing the Econoline. Any advice on which van will make the best 4x4 conversion- Dodge, Chevy? Is it worth making sure I get an E-350 before it is discontinued?

Re: Best Van for 4x4 conversion
By far, the Ford E series van is the best supported van for 4x4 conversion, so it is most cost effective. Just about any thing can be converted though - but may be more of a FrankenVan than you want or more costly.
