    Default Evolution of the Alaskan 4x4 van

    Hey everyone. It's been awhile since I've been on here so I figure I'd give ya'll an update on the rigs. The C-350 hasn't changed much (different wheels and tires, dual batteries), so I guess your stuck with pictures of my other baby. A '94 E-350 4x4. I got her bone stock with the exception of a Quigley 4x4 conversion. Purchase price: $8000 back in '03.

    Specs when puchased:
    '94 Ford E-350 15 passenger van
    Toredor Red
    7.3 IDI non turbo
    E4OD
    Dana 60 front and rear
    245/75/16 tires

    Sorry no pics, just imagine your normal fullsize van with hubcaps. Lol

    First round of mods included:

    Stealing the tires and wheels off my '75 F-250 (35x12.5 on 16.5x10 Outlaws) and minor fender/ bumper trimming.


    Adding 4 KC Daylighters to the bumper (also stolen off the F-250), Lund grill inserts (solid and screened sets), and vanity plates.


    Lund vent visors


    2 1/2% window tint on all windows behind the drivers seat.


    Truck mud flaps to protect the 4-wheelers. Cobra 148 GTL F CB w/ Wilson 5000 ant.

    I like the wheels of round 3. Flares and Bully steps of round 4. Looking forward to round 5 if this is one coming.

    Sorry, there's no way I'd sell the 4-door. The wife loves her truck, not to mention the cost of having to replace it with a newer truck.

    Round 5 is in the planning and budgeting stage. Going for function over appearance this time. Thinking drive train mods. 4.56 gears, Gear Vendor unit, and upgraded drive lines with 1410 u-joints. Thinking of picking up a big toy hauler and the old girl will need any advantage I can give her.

    Traded the old Eagles and some near bald tires for a set of Ford Alcoas. Found that it was hard to find new 16.5 tires locally, so I got away from them. Shipping to/ from AK sucks!!!
