That's crazy...your old van was perhaps "crowed".

Few years back I tried to reach out to Javier and couldn't get a response...

Dave Clark, another Mexico shop upfitter in based out of San Diego is more reputable ... but may use the same conversion shop sooo --- Not that that rig couldn't be a solid conversion.... or Halcon has improved, but I'd ask a lot of questions with serious in person inspection of everything before committing to a South of the border conversion. Could be solid, also could be lipstick on a pig.

Crazy how mismatched the inside and outside are. Looks like a very new van outside, but inside it still has the old style gauges and everything.

Definitely a Crows conversion. You can always tell by the steps and bumpers.

The interior actually threw me off a little bit because when I owned it, the counters and stuff were woodgrain, not white. The white is actually an "upgraded" look in my opinion. The teal fabric screams early 90's, but it could have been worse with the coral/salmon color SMB used.

To the OP who is interested in this van, I remember it being grossly under powered. I'm sure they changed the gear ratio to accommodate the bigger tires, but give it a good test drive up hills or grades to make sure it will do ok.

For a second I thought I had found Rusty but that's definitely Mikracer's old van. It's almost my old vans twin so I looked at it a lot.

Question is if Crow changed the gear ratio for the 4x4 and huge tires....does the ratio match front to rear and is there diff fluid in the axles? And can you trust any welds on that van?
