I posted this on Columbus Ohio CL. More info there...Runs great. 234k, all power options work. Everything is stretched, blocked, and trimmed, but still get a slight rub at full turn! Great platform for someone to finish how they want to,or drive it and enjoy it the way it is! Asking $3250, and I put it on here because I want it to go to someone that appreciates these vans. I will figure out how to insert more pics soon. I'm in Central Ohio. I would NOT be selling it but I need to replace my 2000 Cargo for work. This van draws more attention and redneck thumb ups than one could want. I am negotiable on my price for site members.21702169216721752176

I'm extraordinarily curious how you lifted that van. Those tires must rub like crazy, no?

3 inch body lift, re-arched rear leafs w/u-bolts, coil spacers in the front. With the exception of the re-work of the rear leafs, it's basically your typical lift just really stretched to the limits, and lots of trimming!! Still rubs at full turn, or off-camber situations, but rides ok. I would describe this as a "show more than go" build. Looks awesome in my opinion, but its obviously an off-road clone. If it ever stops raining, I'll get some close up shots of the trimming. On the next set of tires, or the next van, I would go 31 10.50. The 33's work and give it that Tonka look, but the 31's would clear a bit easier! Everybody does their own thing, and does it their own way. Is there a better and way more expensive suspension system or builder out there? Absolutely. Will this look better than most of your everyday run of the mill Astro's at the lake, beach, or mx park? Absolutely!!!
