Making a push to find my van a new owner.
I have put a deposit on a 2020 Ford Transit AWD for conversion.
Sleep 4 seat 4 with belts!
2006 Ford E350 Chateau, V10, 5speed auto, 155K miles, PW, PL, CC, AC, keyless entry with 2 key fobs, rear HVAC, engine block heater (110v), second frame mounted accessory battery
Tan leather interior with 4 captains chairs, rears are removable, one with Latch system
Heated front seats with new lower cushions and covers (50K miles), driver seat is power and lumbar
Custom removable rear platform bed (3 sections) with Lucid 4" memory foam mattress.
Rear cargo area lined with waterproof and abrasion resistant materials
Tan carpeted wheel well storage is lit by LED's.
Custom (bedslide) storage/fridge slide under bed.
Norcold NRF-50 12v fridge
Custom drivers side rear window storage panel, Allows for various equipment storage options, I have a set of “j” hooks for carrying a SUP, Thule Racks for snowboards, etc. Can mount many accessories to this.
Pop out windows.
Tinted windows, and tint windshield visor.
AVS front door window visors
Raptor liner lower rocker panels.
12K tow hitch with OEM wiring and Prodigy P2 brake controller.
10 gallon fresh water tank (mounted inside), Shurflo 2gpm pump, heat exchanger, anti-scald temp valve, and shower sprayer mounted "out the back". Heat exchanger is tied into rear HVAC coolant lines. So you can have hot water shortly after driving, or by running the motor/run the Eberspacher (gas) hydronic heater to heat the water through the exchangers. Eberspacher has 7 day timer for cold weather preheat.
Webasto STC 2000 furnace
Custom camper cabinet which is swappable with the rear drivers side seat. Butcher block top with under mount sink, 2.5 gallon grey tank in cabinet below. 3 small drawers, and seat with a padded lifting lid for a cassette toilet (included). Faucet is plumbed to water system described above with hot/cold supply.
Rubber coin flooring, one piece, dash to rear threshold.
Insulation and sound deadener in sealed wall cavities.
JVC DVD/CD/backup camera, new front door and 2nd row speakers. Camera mounted on rear door.
3 Batteries, starter battery new 5/19, OEM relay switches between starter battery and twin "house" batteries, are mounted in OEM battery boxes on the passenger side frame rail
Blue Sea 6 fuse block for accessories.
Puma 12v compressor mounted under van with composite universal 1/4" quick coupler in rear bumper and remote switch on dash
200 watt solar panel with Victron Smart solar 75/15 controller. Monitored on Smartphone with Victron app
5 star tuner with 3 maps (allows speedometer adjustment for tire sizes)
K+N washable filter.
Custom side exit exhaust from headers back, new muffler, new catalytic converters (2), 50k miles
4T hydraulic jackstand mounted under van to replace OEM jack.
4" Ujoint off road conversion, 4x4 van conversion parts
2004 F230/350 front axle, 3.73 gears, 55K miles since full rebuild
Warn hubs (powder coated black), front sway bar, SS brake lines, 25K miles since Dynatrac front differential (amazing in the snow)
2006 F250/350 Sterling 10.5" R+P, limited slip, 3.73, 15K miles since ring and pinion inspection/contact test, seals, brake pads/ SS lines/disc surfacing, Ujoint Sterling install kit
273 Transfer case with electronic shift, custom built drive shafts front and rear.
This is shift on the fly but does have manual hubs.
For those still following but baffled, I put the whole 4x4 drivetrain from a 99-2004 model series F250 truck. One big difference is it has a 50/50 weight ratio. It handles Interstate speeds, curvy mountain roads, washboard, broken snow floor/ice, fresh tracks, mud, you name it far better than the original van or a f250 truck.
Atlas front and rear springs (no lift blocks in rear), Bilstein shocks (50K miles),
Black Rhino Madness (17x9) wheels, with new Toyo Open Country AT2 285/70/17 (33"), 2500 miles, they have airsoft balancing beads in them so no rebalancing or wheel weights just a tire rotation every 3-5K.
Spare is a steel F-truck wheel with a Dick Cepek Radial FC2 (285/70/17) mounted under the van.
Sportsmobile Penthouse top. Purchased used and refurbished 12/18, Installed 3/19. New paint, updated hardware/seals, LED ceiling lights, Maxfan ceiling vent. New headliner and interior upholstery in tan vinyl to match exisiting interior. Softwalls are in good used condition.
This van was built for camping and 4 season adventure travel. We like to "camp out the back" the vanslide makes a perfect spot to prepare a meal out of our chuck box. The fridge is accessible from the 2nd row seats in front of the kitchen as well as the rear of the van so if urban camping or stuck inside during inclimate weather you can still retrieve a drink or prepare a meal inside.
This van gets a lot of attention and comments!
Van is located in Boise, Idaho. 10 minutes from BOI.
If looking to finance this would be easy to convert the title to RV for a low interest RV loan.
