Overland Classifieds :: 2011 Ford E-350 Quigley 4×4

The Ford E-350 is undoubtedly one of the most popular overland platforms on our forum, and for good reason. We’ve recently featured several trail-ready rigs, including this 2000 Sportsmobile, a 2003 Quadvan, and a 2006 with a Stahl service body. These vans offer long-lived motors and drivetrains, a generous payload and towing capacity, access to both OEM and aftermarket support, and enjoy readily available 4WD conversions from the likes of Agile Offroad, Quadvan, Expo Vans, and, indeed, Quigley 4×4. A modest external footprint yet generous interior living space (especially when outfitted with a high- or pop-top roof) mated with excellent go-anywhere performance is a winning formula. There is no shortage of inspiring builds online with stunning live-in examples from New Jersey Outdoor Adventures, We’re the Russos, and Josh Evans. If you’d like to see how this vehicle handles when the tarmac ends, watch Revere Overland put a Ford E-350 4×4 conversion through its paces on the trails in Kentucky’s Red River Gorge. Today’s 2011 offering has covered 200,000 miles and showcases a desirable Quigley 4×4 conversion, Ford’s Advance Trac traction control, premium modifications, and a lightweight camper conversion.

From the Seller:

“[The van features] an all-aluminum and food grade HDPE interior with MOLLE bag compatible walls, roof, and door panels. The interior was designed to be easily removed with one day of labor and a socket set. Uniquely well-insulated, this van does not create condensation when sleeping inside. The interior has been fully lined with sound-deadening matt and a thick base coat of non-toxic acrylic-based ‘elastomeric glass bead insulation paint.’ It was owned by an oil company that replaced the engine, but I have no idea when. My guess, as someone who has owned a few 5.4 V8 vans in the past, is that this engine has about 60,000 miles on it. [It] holds good compression and has a lot of pep.”

2011 Ford E-350 Quigley 4×4

The E-350 is fitted with a 5.4-liter motor that produces 255 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. The V8 is not incredibly economical by modern standards, but today’s example will return “14 mpg on a flat highway as it weighs less than stock.” A long-lived engine is matched with excellent all-terrain capability thanks to a Quigley 4×4 conversion. This service uprates the E-350 with heavy-duty 4WD, Dana axles, manual locking hubs, high and low range, manual shifter, and more. Inside the Ford includes the following driver comforts:

  • Air conditioning
  • Cupholders
  • Cruise control
  • Power steering, windows, and locks
  • Premium audio

Distinguishing Features

  • Fox shocks, heavy-duty leaf springs
  • Quigley 4×4 conversion
  • Ujoint Off-Road roof rack
  • Freshwater, 13-gallon
  • House batteries 180-amp-hours with 380 watts of solar
