Well, I haven't seen it yet, but the auction just ended and i'm the big winner. Here i come 4x4 land. I think it was a pretty reasonable deal. It's a fair bit more money than some of the older pathfinders i was looking at, but it's the new body, it's low miles, it's got the Advanced 4x4 setup which should be a lot better than the pathfinder, and it already has a top on it high enough for me to comfortably stand in and build an upper bunk in.
LOL! In the description the guy makes it sound as though it is 7'+ tall inside. I asked him for an actual measurement and it turns out it is about 6'4" to 6'5" interior height, so pretty comparable to a cruiser top i think (which was my ideal top).
You found your van! Awesome - that rig is going to be fantastic. I think that you'll find that the extra $ outside your 80's era budget will be well spent. I'd love to go for a ride when you get back in town with it. Have fun on the trip home!
