I've been an avid explorer of the unknown in various Jeeps for many years now. Although I do still have my trusty YJ, I've found it harder and harder to enjoy the Jeep because of the noise, stiff ride and (dare I say) occasional broken stuff.
I was surfing the web one day when I saw an Ad for Colorado Camper Vans (CCV) where someone had tricked out... an ASTRO?! ******!
OK, so CCV turned out to be a hack-happy assclown who doesn't stand behind his work (this mean you Derek... you putz), but the idea was still awesome!

After some research, I decided mehh what the hell and bought a 2WD for $500. I was hooked by the idea. Comfortable, Quiet, room to stretch out.. and AIR CONDITIONING?!! WHERE DO I SIGN!

Later on, I came across an old, used up AWD Astro and just had to give the poor thing a home. Thanks to many people on this site and a few others, I have combined their ideas with my own to plan the perfect Overland Van for my needs. Someday I may tell the tale of the Overlander. For now, I'm soaking up the community and helping others where I can to repay my karma debt for the help I've gotten.

Thanks for reading.
