I remember this van from a forum member in the past. Think the current owner is a member as well?

One thing that sticks out in my mind was the original paint and then they went to the desert tan, which if memory serves correct is a great 50 foot but up close is about a 5 out of 10??

Anyhow seems like a good deal other than I'd want to up grade the quigley control arms since those square ones crack and they look pretty rusty… which is odd that it (rust) didn't get addressed for a SW vehicle.

Ya think? They seem well trained though, even if the one in the middle is about to jump on that burger.

Considering it's got 4wd and a penthouse top, I think it's a good deal. The issues that are listed are pretty minor in my opinion.

Looks like it's tentatively sold pending inspection. That didn't take long...

I am the new owner of this van, seller was 60 miles from me.
Feel fortunate to find this so close to home and well taken care of.
Price was a bit above my budget, but based on the info I was able to find here on the forums, I feel like I got a good deal.
Upgraded from a 2wd Shorty Sunrader, and am happy to have the added capability and safety of 4x4, ABS, etc.

Does have a leak in the exhaust manifold, so I will be looking to upgrade to headers/exhaust to help the motor breathe a little better.

Congratulations, I think you got a great deal. The issues the PO mentioned all seemed to be pretty minor. Best of luck.
