I had a lengthy write up here only to have the forum boot me off. Ugh...Condensed version... In short. Great ride! Agile gets two thumbs up. The stance on this rig is awesome. Kind of reminds me of a smaller version of my old radio box unimog from years back. The van is definitely taller than i expected. Almost 6' at the top of the side mirrors. The rig is a beast. Without steps your definitely climbing up into the cab. Got to test the van out in a few different conditions. Conversion worked flawlessly in both. Had a great time driving and exploring between San Diego where i picked the van up and Loveland, Colorado where i dropped it off with CCV for the pop top, front bumper, awning, etc install. Big thanks to the Agile team. Great group of guys putting out some very good work.

The aux tank Agile installed works very well. 70 gallons of capacity. I avg.'d just over 15mpg. The van does have a vibrational harmonic thing going on (not too loud) just as im coming into a coast or out of a coast between 65-75mph. John is having me keep my ear on it but thinks it'll dissipate as the suspension settles and the tires conform to the front end. Any thoughts on that or anyone else have similar issues?

Didn't take any pics of the interior that were different that the previously posted pics so those will have to come later as i start to really dive into the interior build. I did get a few other pics en route, however.

The CCV tops are really tall inside. Like a two story set up and paired with the van it should feel exceptionally spacious. I should just be able to stand up inside the van with the top down at around 6'. Maybe a bit less.

Also looking forward to the Darche 270 awning install. It should make for some comfortable outdoor accommodations. The awning is a bit big and heavy but i think it'll fit the character of the van well.

Bronco, Driving through New Mexico was the highlight of the trip. My first time through the state and it was very pretty. Beautiful country to explore around there im sure.

Next time you crawl underneath, with the T-case in Neutral (wheels chocked of course) try rotating the driveline back and forth. A little play is normal, but if that play is accompanied by the pinion moving fore and aft while you do this, your pinion bearings are worn.

Tx for the tip, CB. I'll mention it to CCV to see if they can check the play. Have you experienced something similar before?
