    How does everyone finance a used adventure van

    Look into one of the newer online loan websites. Upstart, Prosper, probably some others. They tend to focus on credit scores and not so much what the money is used for. I went with Prosper to get a quick loan on an old van...not as expensive as yours, but they didn't ask for details other than...

    The $3,000 Sportsmobile project

    Sounds pretty similar to my experience to be honest. We did the steering stabilizer as well as a track bar bushing at first, but still had a good shake specifically when braking while going downhill. The new front rotors ultimately got rid of it. I felt similarly about those rotors, especially...

    The $3,000 Sportsmobile project

    Jealous of this score! You mentioned a death wobble and needing new rotors, but we had some death wobble that only occurred while breaking and new pads/rotors took care of it. Not sure if that is the wobble you're experiencing.

    On top of California Pass in Colorado (just under 13,000 ft I believe)

    4x4 E350 7.3 Diesel - The Long Wool Adventure Van

    Wow. Ever take a 6 month trip and forget all about forum posting? Anyways here's the rig in Colorado at ~13,000ft on top of California Pass (I think). Did about 20k miles over the past 6 months and the rig was amazing. Other than typical maintenance the biggest issue was when the starter went...

    SOLD - 300TDI Land Rover Defender 90

    BUMP! Interested? Shoot me some questions or an offer, I'm motivated to get this sold. I have had about 15 different people contact me and then disappear before seeing this rig in person.

    4x4 E350 7.3 Diesel - The Long Wool Adventure Van

    It was definitely a PIA. But with that said, I do feel confident in doing the injectors in half the time next time, so that's nice at least. It is starting way better, but ironically the weather in Portland went up a few degrees as soon as I did the work, so I don't think the van has seen a...

    SOLD - 300TDI Land Rover Defender 90

    Really hoping to get this sold before the end of the month. Make me an offer! Also up for partial trades where the majority is cash.

    Just took the rig on a ~600 mile weekend trip and it did great. Feel free to make me an offer, I am ready to get this sold.

    4x4 E350 7.3 Diesel - The Long Wool Adventure Van

    Alright, I think I have solved the no cold start/low power issue we were having by shimming the injectors! I say I think, because the weather in Portland has been beautiful ever since I did the work, so I haven't had much of a cold day to test it on. Shimming the injectors in place was nothing...

    4x4 E350 7.3 Diesel - The Long Wool Adventure Van

    No codes, my mechanic seemed to have done a pretty thorough testing on the glow plug system and it seemed to check out through all parts. Either way, I will probably go ahead and change the glow plugs and under valve harness when I do the injectors.I'm going to hold off on doing the glow plug...

    Solidworks....its a big part of what I do for work, so I just modeled this up during some spare time.

    4x4 E350 7.3 Diesel - The Long Wool Adventure Van

    Hoping to sort the injectors out this weekend, in the meantime here is the floor plan I threw together. Still a work in progress but I think this should be pretty close to what I end up with.

    4x4 E350 7.3 Diesel - The Long Wool Adventure Van

    So good news, bad news. After trying brand new batteries (which helped but definitely did not solve the problem) I ended up taking the van to a mechanic for a diagnosis...they're pretty sure it is the injectors, which is definitely what my wallet didn't want to hear. Exploring options to see...
