Hey everyone! Thought I'd post some photos of my dream SMB and tell you all a little about how we met.
I had just graduated college and needed a new car. The only car I'd ever owned was a small subaru, and initially I thought I wanted another small car. A car was such a big investment for me, I didn't want to buy something that would break down in a year and I wanted something that would be more useful than just Point A to Point B. I didn't really want a truck, but I knew I wanted to travel. I told my mom I was thinking about getting a van. "WHAT!? Oh my goodness you are not doing that. That's so weird!".
Flash forward 3 months of relentless craigslist searching and day dreaming and I found Rex. Me and my dad flew down to vegas (the van was located in Bishop, CA). We rented one of the tiniest cars I've ever seen and drove to purchase one of the biggest! She's a 2002 7.3 Powerstroke Diesel EB with the 4x4 Conversion. The owner was a firefighter and had purchased the van new from SMB in Cali. Kept AMAZING care of it. The miles were a bit high at 150K but I'm hoping she's got at least twice that left in her.
Dana 70 in the back and 60 up front. 46 Gallon Fuel Tank. 2 Fantastic fans. Propane Burner. He built a lot of cool features inside. I don't have a ton of photos of those but I plan to redo most of them anyway.
Here are some photos from a trip to Glacier (And here's a video if you wanna watch!
I'm currently working a desk job until she's completely paid off, but the second she is, I'm hittin' the road! Thanks for reading everyone!
