No. Some local guy we know let his kids take it on a trip and they rolled it in Oregon. My buddy bought it back from the insurance for cheap.

They had a big forklift with extra long forks running along the frame so quite easy to load. Unloading at home in the snow was another story! Didn't help that one of the rear leafs pack had been ripped out and the rear axle was no longer aligned... But we got her down, gravity works great!

I'm not looking but my van happens to be the same year (2008) and type (passenger) as this rolled one....and has a FF. They are somewhat common on this year passenger vans.......just curious.

Quick update on this one. Since you guys said mating this tranny to the 7.3 would be quite the challenge my body decided to swap the entire drivetrain into his '97 bus. We went back and forth about the 6.0L but at the end, this engine is only 60,000 miles, bulletproofed by a very reputable shop and everything will line up. A small shop offered to do most of the work in exchange for the old 7.3... Not a bad deal

Cheers
