Help me decide weather or not to convert my SMB to 4x4
Newish member here. I recently bought a 1997 Ford E-250 EB SMB poptop. The van is in great shape for its age and only has 90k miles on it. The van is super clean inside and all the appliances work well. its got a sink, stove, fridge, heater, rear a/c, microwave, water heater, and generator.
The exterior is in good condition too. Plus, it has a 4inch lift from action van suspension, 33" BFG K02s and cool black HD rims, aluminess side ladder, thule roof rack (2 bars), and a killer rear storage box that mounts into the trailer hitch
All and all i'm into this van for $25k right now. I am interested in converting it to 4wd and am interested in either a UJOR or Agile Offroad conversion.
I'm wondering if you guys think its worth converting a SMB of this age to 4x4. I am talking purely from a monetary standpoint. I am estimating around another $10-15k to go 4x4.
I have already spent more than I wanted to on this van and could only consider converting it to 4x4 if I could get a good amount of money out of it when I sell it. I plan to keep it for around 5 years, or until the odometer hits 150k (which ever happens first). I don't expect the condition of the van to deteriorate during the time I own it. It will most likely improve
By that point it would be a 25 year old van and from what i've seen (on craigslist and such), these vans do lose their value when they get that old/high mileage.
What are your opinions on this matter? (please no "it only depends on what its worth to you" responses. Its only worth it to me if I can get some of my money out of it)
