    Ujoint Offroad Colorado van build thread!

    All looks great! How did you install the transit seats? Any reinforcement on the bottom? I have them installed in my van and was curious! Sent from my Pixel 3a XL using Tapatalk

    Didn't do the springs or bushings because it was gonna be a lot more work to get them off and the shop only cited us on shackles which were showing signs of wear. More soundproofing yesterday the sides of the vehicle are now all done. Gonna move onto some more fun projects now, flooring and...

    Okay... more very slow progress here but starting to finally get some traction... Found out not only did we have a bad battery but it was approximately half the size of what it needed to be. Got a new one (proper size) from autozone and havent had any issue getting the van started under its...

    Okay, well our bunkhouse camper sold on consignment finally! New Year, newly renewed interest in the van! Can't seem to get the battery to stay charged, not sure if it is battery itself or a parasitic draw. I was sure that handicap interlock was the source but sounds like there is something...

    Okay minor updates here since I am bored at work covering a shift... I was able to yank the handicap interlock. This thing was causing all sorts of problems; draining the battery, preventing shifting out of park, all sorts. So happy to see it go! Also discovered that a door sensor was keeping...

    Hi everyone, the first step in motivating myself is always making an update post to try to get some encouragement. Alot of updates since the last post! another motivating factor saw one of these at the RV dealer when dropping off our trailer for consignment: Hows that for 200k$ worth of...

    played with the Android receiver last night and for the life of me cannot get the keyboard functionality to work, making it almost worthless... so back to amazon it goes and another Chinese android unit is on the way. Also got the dash kit in hand, which doesnt quite fit the receiver (too small...

    Thanks for that insight! When you look in these forums there are so few gas builds and never any 4.6l, so I was a little weary about that. It feels tight and powerful enough at least with the van empty. One thing I love about this rig so far is parts availability! There are simply so many still...

    Thanks for the input everyone. I put a 4' level on the driveshaft today and there is an obvious tweak with a straight edge on there. I am sure hoping this is the cause of the issue. I ordered a used Ebay shaft and some new SKF u-joints. This will be my first driveshaft replacement project, wish...
