Hello from Detroit, Michigan

Postby pete__31 [OP] » November 30th 2011, 2:48pm

Hey all,

The wife and I just purchased a 2005 AWD Astro passenger van. So far we love it, and the dogs dig it too! We bought the Astro with hopes of purchasing a pop-up or travel trailer later next year. If things go as planned we should be foster parents soon and would love to take the dogs n kids camping. There are only a couple of things wrong with the van, power locks and transfer case skipping, both seem to be rather easy fixes. Any suggestions for 'first mods'?
