Wow... I typically rotate tires myself (when you own three lifts, you have little excuse to pay to have that done...). It does seem odd using a torque wrench isn't standard practice by most shops. ...

Yeah... supply and demand.. sure, a used top "should" cost $500. And depending on where you are, that might be a realistic price. Probably in the rust-belt where vans are more likely to end up in...

I agree with pretty much everything posted. Time = money. In some cases it takes time if you want to snag a deal. For example, the van in my avatar is a bit of a unicorn: E350, extended length,...

What amuses me about the Earthroamer is when I look at them I just see all of the things I'd change. So I guess if I'm ever in a position to get something like that, it would end up being completely...

Agreed. If it wasn't on the other side of the country from me, I'd be trying to figure out how to get that. My van already has a raised roof, but additional headroom would be nice for my plans.

I'm sure an EV van is just a matter of time. Right now, the only one that seems to be in the works is the Rivian EV van ordered by Amazon.
