Not mine, just thought it was interesting.

That 7.3 is just getting broken in..the only other 7.3 Ive known with that kind of mileage was Dereks at CCV, I think it finally went out on him close to 500K, figure the next owners on this one should be able to get about 60K out of it before total rebuild. Priced accordingly.

Why do I get the feeling we'll see this van for sale again later this year... at 10x the price and with a Crow 4x4 conversion. Definitely a cool layout for family roadtrippin'.

I forget some of my stats, but if the B50 life is 350k, meaning that should be the peak of the bell curve, then past 5-600k without a rebuild is definitely possible. But it's definitely playing the odds.

Also, be aware that the body kit and the carpet could be hiding rust. The conversion company has to drill all those holes for the seats and they do a really bad job at preventing rust. I bought a van just like this and it has a huge rust problem where they bolted a seat down and also under the body kit. The conversion company really likes to hack away at these vans. I would stay away from these coach vans unless you can rip the carpet up before you buy.
