Lifted 2003 Astro AWD

Postby bkilby [OP] » January 11th 2014, 1:09am

2003 Chevy Astro AWD van. 118,600 miles on 4.3 vortec with approx 4000 miles on rebuilt transmission. It has F/R air and heat and dutch doors in the rear.

The van runs good and is very reliable. I use is mainly as a daily driver and convert it to an off road camper van when I go camping. It has a custom 3.5”-4.0” lift with Bilstein shocks that clears 265/70R16 BFG All Terrain tires. It rides and handles great! Other mods I’ve done are:

Kenwood DNX6190HD stereo and Kenwood speakers
Cobra 75 WX ST CB radio (stores away when no in use)
Yaesu FTM-10 HAM radio
Premier Power Welder with 170 amp alternator
Custom winch bumper with Warn M6000 portable winch

There is an aluminum plate mounted on the floor behind the rear seat to allow tie down etc for ice chest or whatever you have to put there. It’s CNC cut and fits perfect.
The 2 rear seats can be removed to make it a cargo van or camping van. I have a custom rear seat setup that folds down to a bed that will go with the van if the buyer wants it. Fridge slide not inlcuded! It’s not finished but does function. (Needs paint and custom cushions made).

I have lots of good used take off parts that will go with the van as well. Asking $10,000 OBO. Any of the accessories can be removed to lower the price as well.

I hope someone near me buys it...would be cool to finally have someone to wave to! Good luck with the sale. I think we were all hoping to see you start cranking out aftermarket offroad stuff for us though... :?

Hey, you never know what might happen. I didn't get the other company to jump on board to make the suspension and winch bumper like I was hoping so that didn't go anywhere. Doesn't mean I can't make one-offs though. ;-) I still have a winch bumper for sale though. Maybe two...

Nice looking van. Love that front bumper. If I didn't already have one, I'd be all after this one.

Those are for the CB. The plug is on the PS, the hanger on the DS. The little box for the CB is hiding up in there.

Update: I realized the Kenwood Head unit will fit my next vehicle so I removed it today. The stock stereo is back in but still has the Kenwood speakers. New price is $9500.00

:'(

Did it go to someone on this site? Did you tell them about this site?

I really like the bumper and rock guard up front.

How much would one of those cost? can you still make them?

I don't know if he's on this list or not but I did tell him about it.

We really aren't setup to do production stuff anymore. I was trying to get another "van" company to build them but they decided not to. I'll have to think about it and talk to my fab guy to see if it makes sense to build more. They aren't cheap!
