EB body swap
OK. I know this sounds agressive, but hear me out. I have a 96 EB SMB 2wd that is in excellent condition. Body/interior looks like it is only a couple of years old. Has 110,000 miles and runs great. The springs are starting to sag and the front suspensin is getting a little loose. I really wanted a 4x4, but I could not pass up this deal. I priced out getting a 4x4 conversion and they run over $10,000. Doesn't make much sense to spend that much on a 12 y/o vehicle. Then I came upon a 2001 V10 Quigley that was wrecked. I can pick up cheap and am wondering about a EB body swap. At the price I am looking at, I could buy the newer van, swap the bodies, and sell the non-keeper to offset the cost. If the swap is plausable, I think I could come out with a net of ~$5,000-8,000 and have a much lower mileage van. Any problems swapping a 2001 with a 1996? I am not concerned with the titling as I would keep the 1996 VIN. I plan on keeping for years, so am not concerned about resale. Thoughts? Thanks.
