newbie

Hello to all! Not new to the site but new to actually being an owner of one of these awesome machines. I have been looking for years and saying "I will own one of those one day" and it finally happened.
I bought this girl several weeks back, and am pumped to find EXACTLY what I wanted on the east coast! I had been planning to buy one out west and drive it back- but anyway.

It's a 98 E350 EB with a new Jasper 7.3 replacement motor, with U-Joint offroad 4x conversion. She has 35's on it and am in the process of building her back out. When I got it it was stripped interior, so I had a clean slate to start from. I have 2 kids so sleeping 4 was a must, I think it's turned out great thus far, just currently waiting on parts to finish up..

Pumped to actually be an owner- and can't wait to post new updates and trips to come!

A new 7.3, u-joint 4x4, AND CCV top? Nice score. Great platform to build out.

Does look like a great ride - like some of the work you've completed so far. Once you get that dialed in, you'll have this overwhelming urge to get out in it...all the time! It will make for some great memories + the kids will become more popular at school when others see Dad drive up to functions in that beast.
Welcome.

Thanks for the kind words!
We are pumped! Parts coming in daily, next big task is to finish the wiring. I’ve wired a lot of of boats, the solar has me alittle worried, but I’ve done the research, feel like I can make it happen.
I’ll keep posting the upgrades- thinking about moving the battery with the other 3 where the spare was, then I can put a real intake-filter on it.
