The Ford E-350 4×4 is a fantastic live-in option for travelling cross country and exploring backcountry trails. This go-anywhere van finds a sweet spot between driveability and comfort and provides generous interior living space within a modest external footprint. It’s a desirable vehicle for overlanding with various adventure-ready builds posted to our forum, including this $79,500 2004 Sportsmobile, a $98,000 2003 Quadvan, and a $86,000 2009 Timberline conversion. Today’s low-mileage (65,800 miles) 2013 Ford E-350 Ujoint 4×4 is therefore competitively priced at $65,000 OBO (half the price of a Sprinter 4×4 and more capable), especially when you consider this was previously the pride and joy of Ujoint 4×4 owner Chris Steuber. The company has “been creating 4×4 vans for over 16 years and continues to develop new products to make Ford 4WD conversions more affordable and accessible for the DIY 4×4 van enthusiast.”
It goes without saying that this particular example had no expense spared on the conversion (seller explains that $50,000 was spent on the work/upgrades alone) and was utilized as one of the company’s flagship models. In fact, you can enjoy an in-depth tour of the build on the Driving Line Youtube channel, which is aptly titled The Ultimate Ford E-350 4×4 Adventure Van from Ujoint Offroad. This van is truly stunning and would make the perfect base vehicle for a live-in expedition rig.
From the Seller:
“This is the OG ‘Spec Van’ previously owned and built by Ujoint Offroad owner Chris to showcase everything the company has to offer. It’s an absolutely amazing rig and has been a pleasure to own. This is a full conversion of the best parts available. No wait, no stress—just fun. Full price offer will include a brand new GFC Superlite RTT!”
