Ready to get lost in the forum world!

We have a 1996 E250 that was built out by Sportsmobile when it was new. It had a long life being owned by an "older" couple down in San Diego before Ramsey from Agile Off-Road bought it. When we first saw it, it was in pretty rough shape but it has made a solid comeback! It has since been converted by Agile to 4x4 and made custom to fit 37's. It is a beast!

The interior was in pretty rough shape when we got it so almost all the Sportsmobile cabinetry has been ripped out and we are currently planning on redoing it.

Excited to catch up on all the content available on here! Below are a couple pictures of the van over the last couple years!

Welcome

Like the 37 look. What did they have to do to get them to fit?

37s! I think this may have been the one Ramsey had in the shop on stands and was working for an even longer travel setup. I probably have a photo of it stored someplace. Congratulations!

A ton of trimming! They also had to change up the TTB slightly to account for the bigger tires.

This is definitely that van! Ramsey had it at the shop for over 5 years. His plan was to make it into basically a rock crawler to show what their TTB design is capable of! When we got it, it had already had a big chunk of his work put into it. So we wanted to make sure we stuck with the 37's!

I've been following your van on instagram for a while. Was always curious what the interior was like. I imagined it constantly covered in silverware and food as you crawl over boulders or whatever.

Thing is a beast!
