You all seem like van people, here's mine

Postby roachmon [OP] » January 9th 2021, 6:19am

Hey everyone, been using the wealth of knowledge on this site for about 6 months now and figured I should introduce myself and my van.

I purchased this 2000 AWD Astro back in June 2020, with 114000 miles on it. Since then I've racked up a few miles and gotten it up to to 122000 now! Picked it up in Denver. It was a Douglas County Sheriff's vehicle for its entire life, so I bought it assuming (and hoping) it had regular maintenance done on it. The seller didn't have any info on maintenance, but it seemed to be in good shape. So far its been great and reliable. This summer, drove it from Colorado out to Washington, and all points in between.

A few months back I installed a 2 + 1 body lift and got some bigger tires! I opted for the Kumho Road Venture AT51 235/75R15 coming in at ~29". Great upgrade from the stock tires.

In the middle of some work on it now, so I'll post in the proper area for that. Doing an IM lower gasket replacement, so if you wanna chime in on that, I'll post about that in a bit.
