FOUND Vans For Sale!

Is Quigley generally considered better than Pathfinder? Seems like Quigley has a bad rap as a lot of folks de-Quiglify their vans, no?
Quigley does a huge number of 4x4 conversions compared to the others, so that alone may be why you hear their name come up frequently. In the good/better/best world of conversions I would place them in the "better" category. There are folks that do a premium product compared to them, but also folks that do worse. All depends on what you are shopping for and what your budget is.

Man this rig has been for sale a lot in the past 4 years. I almost bought it 4 years ago and have seen it go thru 2 owners since… Makes me think there's something up??

Possible.
Vans are also kind of a pain to work on sometimes and that one looks like it needs love... Might just be that it's too much to chew for some folks.

I'm curious as to who did the conversion and there must be something going on if it's selling like that.

I've seen it up close here in Newberg. It has an old bronco style front suspension. Pretty light duty in my opinion. The van is a little rough too. It looks well used.
