My name is Jeffree. I live in Utah and just purchased a '90 Dodge Ram B250 van. Here is a link of the actual classified posting but idk how long it'll work. https://www.ksl.com/auto/listing/1117798?ad_cid=6
It has a pent house top with the words Sportsmobile on the rear left of it.
I am an adventurist and love being outdoors. This will be my base camp for when I go motorcycle riding, mountain biking, canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, hell even Three Wheeler riding. (Yes I still have one, no they aren't illegal) This will be a redneck/low budget build for me to start with. I have never owned an RV before and have lots of questions ranging from plumbing/water to electrical and charging systems. I will read all I can but forgive me if I ask a question that has previously been answered.
After doing some research, after I purchased the van, I was saddened to learn that Dodges have a Unibody, not a body on frame so turning it into a 4x4 would be rather expensive. I am looking for a LSD (posi, sure grip, tru trac) to put in the rear.
Funny story from today. The top pops okay but one side seemed to lean to one side and wouldn't stay up. After several frustrating hours of trying to figure out why it wouldn't stay up it hit me, what's on top? There was a good inch and a half of solid ice and 3 inches of snow on top! After I got that taken off it pops and stays up just fine.
I would love to meet up with some fellow UT members and have them show me their rigs and set ups and help me figure out some of the stuff with mine.
Thanks and I'll be posting pics soon.
