Just looked it up. $2500. Big list of parts as well I can send to anyone interested.

Thanks for all of the input. All great advice. Im still in talks with the owner but hoping we can work something out in the next day or two. I think I will go with the drive it for a while and see option. If this one doesnt work out maybe I will buy a stock van and build it out myself. I really like the regular body as it will be my daily driver also, but it doesn't seem like there are many out there.

Bellpilot if you have that list handy can you send it my way. Buddy21218@verizon.net Thanks

Buddy, will send it your way tomorrow.

The RIP package from Agile was the best upgrade in did to my van. I lived for 125k miles with the stock Quidley and should have done the upgrade a long time ago.

I self installed the full RIP kit on my Quigley at 6k miles. Properly valved shocks and springs will transform ANY vehicles handling.

Hi Buddy, I just sent you the list of parts John w/Agile installed my van for the RIP Kit.

As others have said, drive it first before deciding. I have a 2007 Quigley conversion, and I've had multiple 4x4 trucks (Dodge 3500 right now) plus a Jeep and the Quigley rides as good and handles just as good as the pickups and definitely rides better than the Wrangler! I don't understand whether Quigley had different conversions for different years but 11 years in I still have over 2-1/2" of clearance between the front axle and the bump stops which is the same as my Dodge and Ford pickups. So I've never had any excessive bottoming of the front axle. Seems to be the same as the pickups. And because the wheelbase is so much shorter than the pickups, this van is much more maneuverable off road.

YES John told me a few weeks ago Fox has raised prices and indicated another price increase for 2018. Bummer.


My son is a Yota 4x4 driver and had other advice :rolleyes:

Has it gone up that much?

I would drive it for a bit see how you’re going to load it and then like everyone else has said touch base with agile off road. We ended up driving our van for about a year until I figured out how everything was going to be laid out and how the weight affected the van before I got in contact with agile off road. Well worth the cost.
