    Ford Chinook Diesel Swap

    Looks great! I would love more details. I recently bought a 2000 Chinook Premier with 200k miles. It runs great right right now. I basically finished fixing all the systems, and I am going to use it for a year before any major changes. If we decide to keep it, I really want 4x4. My ideal...

    4WD Chinook, Restored Nicely, SoCal

    Price went up to $42k. Looks like a cool little camper. I don't see a spare tire, and I doubt it is under the back since the black water tank would most likely be there. I also don't see a generator or AC. That does make the roof line nice if you don't "need" it.

    New for 2022? GXV and EarthCruiser hints

    Andreas, I believe yours is hard mounted to the cab and the AEONrv has a rubber accordion boot. If adding lift and/or 4wd do you see any risk with hard mounting it to the Transit cab? I like the ruggedness of the Ford E series, but not needing a subframe and factory AWD would be huge.

    C4500 Kodiak Ambulance

    In case anyone is interested, they have had it for sale for about a week now at Pilip Ambulance. That was an expensive 120 mile drive, oil change and two new glow plugs! Makes me sick for a number of reasons: 1st is I should have bought it, but my wife would want me to sell it. 2nd- I wonder...

    6.6L DURAMAX 4X4 EXPRESS VAN, under $30k, Desert SW

    Craigslist link Strange that he asks $30k in the title and $35k in the main text. Also strange how most of his pictures are screen shots. Looks pretty nice though.

    F 550 4x4

    Pretty sure that has been for sale for a long time. If I get time, I might try and find it back in the archives. Looks like the box is really tall, and that is what I remember. Those cell phone pictures scream scam to me.

    e450 7.3 Diesel vs v10 vs wait 10 years for 7.3 gas cutaway as a base for custom camper box

    I’ve thought about this and it seems like a good route. Could get factory AWD which for the price would be nice. I don’t need off road performance. I would like something that I can drive through 11” of unplowed snow on dirt roads, western muddy roads. Waiting on seeing how well these lift...

    e450 7.3 Diesel vs v10 vs wait 10 years for 7.3 gas cutaway as a base for custom camper box

    On 2/15/21 I found a 2019 12’ foot box van SRW for $28,500, asking $30. Couldn’t get my wife to go for it. V10 30k miles, but it still had the warranty. Rear barn doors. I think it even had a side door but the pics on the email are gone. Was for sale for at least 3 weeks. Can’t remember the...

    C4500 Kodiak Ambulance

    Well it jumped $5k again. If you look at the time stamps must have reached the high bidder for a minute. Don’t forget the 12.5% buyers premium. Right now if you bid it would be just over $41k. I was hopeful yesterday because this is only 4 hours from me, but not even asking today.

    e450 7.3 Diesel vs v10 vs wait 10 years for 7.3 gas cutaway as a base for custom camper box

    That might be a little far. I’m in west Michigan, so about 6.5 hours each way. I’ll keep it in mind though.

    e450 7.3 Diesel vs v10 vs wait 10 years for 7.3 gas cutaway as a base for custom camper box

    Thanks for all your replies. I’m really leaning toward gas. The funny thing is the 7.3 PSD sold, and the seller posted a 2014 with around100k miles. Both were $3k cutaway former ambulances. I got way more excited about the v10, but it sold before I could pick it up. Around 3 days vs 2 plus...

    e450 7.3 Diesel vs v10 vs wait 10 years for 7.3 gas cutaway as a base for custom camper box

    I feel like 70 dB is loud. I was hoping for better, but it is good to get the real info. I’m not sure I could handle that for 20 hours at a time. Of course with a camper I might not be as inclined to drive 20 or more hours at a time. I will have to have my wife drive so I can look at my dB...
