I have browsed this site for a while now while in the process of completing my project. Close enough to finished now to jump into the mix. Just a brief run down for now, more photos to follow, including the interior which will be nearly finished this weekend.
I'm from the Northwest and usually travel or a month or two at a time throughout the west. This was previously done in my 2012 Rubicon JKU, which I loved! However, after realizing I wanted more time off the beaten path I decided something larger and more comfortable for extended trips was in order.
I picked up a 2014 E250 extended cargo with the V8. I like to travel light and don't plan to tow so that motor works. I ordered a top from Fiberine and had a body shop install the top and paint everything. Have a friend that does boat interiors for a living take care of the inside. Took it to Quadvan in Portland for the 4wd conversion and tires and wheels. I went with the 4 inch lift and 285/70/17 BFG KO2s.
It should be ready to launch on its first road trip next week. No planned route but will hit Moab and likely the Mohave Road Trail along the way.
