After reading through many of the build threads on here I officially have the 4WD van bug. My family and I spend a lot of time in Baja, and as sad as it sounds my Silverado 2500HD Crew Cab just doesn't have enough room for my wife and I, our 2 kids, and 2 dogs, plus all of the "essentials" that they just can't live without for a week .

In my search for a better solution I have decided on a van, but as anyone else who has been looking knows, the most desirable models are few and far between. I have been scouring Craigslist, Autotrader, Truck Paper, etc and still haven't found one anywhere close to me.

I thought we could all help each other out in our searches, and maybe the mods can make this a sticky. I know I am not the only one on here looking.....

Also, I am open to having a vehicle shipped, but would prefer someone local to check it our first. If anyone is local to any of these and is willing to take a look I will cover gas costs, etc. I would be happy to return the favor is anyone needs one looked at in So Cal

"MY" Requirements:

1. Passenger version, extended body, 2WD, no conversions

2. 7.3l diesel, 6.0l diesel, or V10

3. My "perfect" van would be a 2005 V10 15 passenger.

I will start:
