Im going to love watching all that you do to this van! These van are prolly one of my favorite types of overlanding rigs. I hope that one day after my kids are moved out, my wife and I can do this and travel the country.
I found a way to ease the lift conversation with my wife.. We needed new shocks anyway so i wanted to spend the money and get the good ones.. Ones that would last and replace a couple thing that looked like they were on their way out anyway. All of a sudden i had a 2" lift and new shocks!
