85650856588566685642
Located in Minneapolis
1999 AWD
162000 miles
$4000 firm

It has been my daily driver for awhile now, and it is ready to be passed on to it's next owner. Lots of work has gone into this 1999 AWD Astro to make it into the Battlecar you see now. Van was used as work vehicle (these haul 4ft x 8ft sheets without issue), trail rig, and daily driver.

Original interior carpet and conversion parts removed, leather seats from Plymouth Voyager are now first and second row. Second row seats are removed easily with no tools. The interior is not as glamorous as the outside. Keep in mind, this is a van built for dominating trails and winter commutes and just happens to look good doing it.

The only rust on van was on driver's side. Panels were cut out, and new sheet metal was welded in. All lower areas and bumpers are Rhino Lined. Custom fabricated front and rear bumpers. Jeep Wrangler spare hanger with spare hangs on back door.

So you might be asking yourself, if I have put over $7000 and countless hours into this van--why am I selling it for $4000? Well, the check engine light is on, the AC does not work and heat is intermittent. I am ready to move on and I believe all the time and money has been worth it. This van is a blast to drive, gets compliments everywhere, and was a project my son and I worked on together.

Parts list..
**Suspension** (5" overall lift)
Husky Leaf Springs
Rancho Shocks RS5112
Rancho Shocks RS5152
Trail Gear U Bolt Flip Kit
Chassis Works Torsion Keys

**Wheels/Tires**
Crager 16" x 7" Wheels, Including Spare, less than 10000 miles
Trailfinder All Terrain 265/75r16, less than 5000 miles

**Motor/Exhaust**
Custom Welded Exhaust dumps out in front of rear right wheel and sounds badass
Thrush Muffler
Magnaflow Cat
AC Delco O2 Sensors

**Axles, Brakes**
Rear axle assembly pulled from low mileage GMC Jimmy
AC Delco Spark Plugs
AC Delco Wires
AC Delco Distributor Cap and Rotor
ACCEL Super Coil
AC Delco Power Steering Pump, Hoses, Filter, Cooler
AC Delco Master Cylinder

Rebuilt Rear Drum Brake Assemblies, Left and Right
AC Delco Wheel Bearings and Hub Assemblies, Left and Right
Advance Auto Brake Calipers, Left and Right
Ceramic Brake Pads, Left and Right
Brake Rotors, Left and Right

All Fluids and filters replaced

I also have a 4WD Transfer case that can be bolted in place of the AWD. It will come with the van along with some interior parts, a 3rd row seat that folds flat for a bed, and additional new brakes for rear.

Great deal on a great looking van.

Will make someone very happy.

Can you scan the DTC? Might give someone a bit more information as to what might be wrong..

VERY Nice Looking Van !!

But... is the rear axle centered?

Rear axle is definitely centered! The panel you are looking at was replaced with new sheet metal and might not follow exact factory lines. Good eyes guys
