    Default FOUND Vans For Sale!

    After reading through many of the build threads on here I officially have the 4WD van bug. My family and I spend a lot of time in Baja, and as sad as it sounds my Silverado 2500HD Crew Cab just doesn't have enough room for my wife and I, our 2 kids, and 2 dogs, plus all of the "essentials" that they just can't live without for a week .

    In my search for a better solution I have decided on a van, but as anyone else who has been looking knows, the most desirable models are few and far between. I have been scouring Craigslist, Autotrader, Truck Paper, etc and still haven't found one anywhere close to me.

    I thought we could all help each other out in our searches, and maybe the mods can make this a sticky. I know I am not the only one on here looking.....

    Also, I am open to having a vehicle shipped, but would prefer someone local to check it our first. If anyone is local to any of these and is willing to take a look I will cover gas costs, etc. I would be happy to return the favor is anyone needs one looked at in So Cal

    "MY" Requirements:
    1. Passenger version, extended body, 2WD, no conversions
    2. 7.3l diesel, 6.0l diesel, or V10
    3. My "perfect" van would be a 2005 V10 15 passenger.

    I will start:

    So you're only open to the newer model vans? GREAT deals can be had on 80s and 90s vans. I got mine for a steal.

    Yeah, I would like a newer one. I currently have an 04 Silverado that I will be selling to buy the van, so my budget is around $15K or so for the van, which will give me enough left over to do the 4x4 conversion. Of course, if I can find a good one for less I wouldn't complain......

    I have a full sized off road race truck that I will be towing, and I spend a lot of time down in Baja with my family, so I really want/need a newer van. More power, less maintenance, etc. I have enough projects on my plate with my other vehicles.

    Thats about 1,500 miles away from where I am at (San Diego). There can also be issues with rust on vehicles from areas outside the southwest. I would need someone local to there to go take a look at it and check it out.

    this isn't local for you, but was wondering if anybody could talk me out of this one. I not thrilled its a dodge 308 and full time 4 wheel drive. the transfer case and hubs can be changed fairly easy. but not a motor head and the fords and chevys seem to be more prevelent.
    but the van has all the other things I would like (besides a diesel)
    just thoughts and opionions??


    http://bend.craigslist.org/cto/3067894785.html

    I am considering this one, and a 97 chevy that is for sale on the forum ( http://www.expeditionportal.com/foru...amperized-6000 ) and I am at a flip a coin almost. one is cheaper but close enough to condiser either I think. both are fly and drive so I dont actually get to see them in person till I am needing a ride home. lol

    thanks for any input.

I have decided that I could live with a V10, and I may be actually leaning towards a newer V10 at this point since it has the better tranny and doesn't have the issues of the 6.0 diesel. With a lower initial cost and less $$ required to "fix" the 6.0, I think the V10 will work for me. So I have expanded my search.
