Greeting from the left coast!
Yes, I'm an old geezer.
I have a 2002 Chevy Express 1500 cargo van that I use to tow a boat or a travel trailer. The reason I joined is that I saw a thread on a Google search about lifting pre-2003 Chevy vans on this forum. After we set up our trailer camp site, we take short excursions in the van. We don't do extreme off roading but have gotten stuck once in awhile so the reason for the front end lift.
In my younger days, I did have a full time 4wd 1973 Blazer that pretty much got me everywhere I wanted to go but now that I'm much much older, I don't do that stuff anymore.
If anyone has a pre 2003 Express 2wd van with a front end lift, I'd really appreciate hearing and/or seeing it.
