New Demo rig finally 4x4

We've been working on our new demo rig for a few weeks and now its ready for the debut at Overland Expo. I got V7 in Jan, originally bought it to build & sell but it was just too nice. 2005 V10 Chateau with only 11k on the clock! I thought it was too good to be true, especially since it came from NY. Surely it had rust.... so we had it checked up there and they gave it an excellent bill of health. Once here I confirmed that it was perfect. Long story short, I put V5 up for sale, it went to Vegas and I decided to keep V7.

We tried some new things on this build, mainly in the front axle. Free spin hub kit from SpynTec, 8 piston calipers and rotors from SSBC, Hellwig Excursion sway bar. It drives & brakes amazing, can't wait to give some demo rides. I'll stop typing and get some pics up now----

Day1


6" lift, Stage 1 D60 front with the upgrades listed above, 4.56 gears, ARB rear locker, single Fox 2.0's, flares, 35" Toyo RT's on ATX Cornice wheels, UJ front bumper with Rigid LED lights, Warn VR12000 with Syn winch line, UJ roof rack with goodies.

Nice old skool 6" Pipe bumper on the front. lol

That big pipe in the background is in just the wrong spot.

Van looks great! Nice color!
