Asking $6800 812 624 1813 for questions or offers
160k miles, clear title.


New Michelin Defenders with Big O Tires, free Nationwide Rotation and Road Hazzard

This van body package with VIN is a 99 GMC rear wheel drive. I have never run the VIN.
Anyone who does is welcome to share.I bought it from Master Mechanics who switched out the engine, computer and all running gear axles, trans-axle everything with a 2003 AWD, making this a conversion explorer package riding on much newer truck that runs clean and quiet I bought at 107k mi and it has 163,000 on it now.


• There's alot of information and photos in my albums. Go there Will consider Delivery in the 48 states. Must negotiate a plan and price depending on sales price.
• Well tested and maintained.
•I am making various plans and can deliver it in the 48 states depending on location and buy price.
I am only selling her because I am going long term traveling via boat or out of the country.
• She is sitting on new Michelin Defenders and KYB monomax up front and Gabriela Hi-Jackers
on the back, great engine and running gear with key points addressed and upgrade over the
past 4 years and 60k miles that I've owned it.

Trust her to drive anywhere. Runs rides drives fantastic. Lifetime support of anything I know about the van, call me I will advise to the new buyer. I love this van but don't want to see her sit and could use money for new plans

It will be listed on EBAY soon and I will try to post a notice here when I do.

•Asking price of $6800 which will probably be the initial buy it now price on Ebay.

•It is negotiable and when I need to make the sale quick, offers are considered.


This price is the value based on the upgrades, extras, features and maintenance and new
spare tune up parts and is a fair value. Anything less you get it for is an honest good deal
and serves as a little new buy insurance on anything that can pop up with a used vehicle.


If you want an explorer van ready to go now with all the desired features take a closer look.

4 New Tires. El Dorado. Master Tire. 40-50k mi tires. Lasted 50k plus all even wear. Have receipt. NOV 2013
All Oil Changes, Additives and Fuel Treatments:
OIL: Runs like a top, does not burn oil.
Fram Extra Guard or Tough Guard (7,500 or 10,000 rated filters)first oil change at 4,000 miles.
All subsequent changes at 4,500-6,500 mi max, usually at 5500 depending on type of
driving I did.
Oil always stayed very clean throughout.
Only ever burned off less than half a quart at 6,800 miles on the change, oil still very clean for
that many miles on the change, with a 10,000 mi rated filter and Penzoil Full Synthetic Oil 5W-30
Generally used standard Penzoil or Synthetic Blend, with Lucas Oil Additive, year round except
on the winter change. I tried to time my last dead of winter oil changes to be Lucas Oil free.
Every other oil change use an oil filter full of Marvel Mystery oil.

FUEL:
I ran about 3 cans of Sea Foam per year in the fuel and about 3 -4 quarts/year of marvel Mystery
in the Fuel just to keep things basic, affordable and clean.

• All Grease fittings greased and checked 2-3 times /yr.

now.

04-05/2016 NEW REAR SHOCKS. GABRIEL HIJACKERS< AIR ADJUSTABLE.

11-24-14 New Rotor & Distributor Cap. 124,800 mi
It was very cold winter that year and randomly I went to start it and heard a crack noise. Had
it towed to my mechanic down the block and he checked the plugs and wires and changed the
cracked cap with a new rotor and explained that these vans can build heat under the cowling
and eventually cause that on the cap and rotor randomly.
Reports everything else looks great. See Receipts, I have a new cap and rotor spare in the
parts kit that go with the van.

10-19-15 137,385mi RECEIPTS:

HAZZARD
. These are 70,000 mi rated tires and are reported on astrosafari.com as having got
90,000 mi out of them. Between the new front shocks and these tires, and all the above, this t
thing rides great. All systems work and is reliable to adventure ANYWHERE!
SPARE PARTS ON BOARD:
• USED BELT(easier to install on the road if for any reason the new lifetime warranty one should fail).
• NEW BOSCH IRIDIUM 100k mi Sparkplugs, PERFORMANCE PLUG WIRES, CAP, ROTOR, IGNITION MODULE.
• NEW SPARE RADITIATOR CAP
• NEW SPARE BLOWER MOTOR W RESISTOR AND WIRING HARNESS(SEE ASTRO SAFARI FORUMS, CURRENT FAN IS FINE AND WORKING ON ALL SPEEDS, but was requiring a tap now and again in deeper winter temperatures to un-stick it.
