2000 4x4 SMB, 7.3L Quigley

Not my vehicle now, but I was the previous owner. This van is a testament to the 7.3L engine. I found it for sale on a trip to New Hampshire and decided to bring it home to Colorado. Bought it from the original owner (guy in his 80's) who liked to drive between his home in NH and Alaska - said he's spent over 300 nights in it. Also explained the high mileage. During the short time I owned it I upgraded the track bars to the tube style (Quigley thing - I've had excellent experiences with Q) and put a fresh set of Rancho 9000 shocks on it. Full disclosure, I own a company that rents Sportsmobiles - Tonto Trails. I've owned quite a few SMB's and can tell you this one drives great and the 7.3 runs strongly. Brian, the current owner, is a good friend and he has made a number of upgrades over the past couple of years including adding solar, wheels, and always staying in front of regular maintenance items. The penthouse top on this van is a manual lift. It is the smoothest operating manual-lift SMB top I've ever used - can't figure out why. Yes, the van has high mileage. No it doesn't have every single option. But it's a really nice van and an opportunity to try out the 4x4 Campervan lifestyle at a more reasonable price point than most other options.
