Where did you get that awsome full length safari rack?
It is definitely the nicest vehicle I have ever owned . I had a 79 CW before this and built the rack for that vehicle . I took over a university tech position late in the winter semester during a transition into a new facility . The guy before me was incompetent and there was a concern that work would overwhelm me before the move was completed so they extended my job into the summer . As a former contractor and union carpenter , I found the work load pretty easy to handle and used the facilities and some old dorm bunk bed frames , stored behind the building , to modify the Weather Shield brackets and create 2 separate deck panels with bolt on rails . I still want to add a grab bar and step at the back corner to ease access and then get it powder coated .
that is a nice roof rack, not to mention the rest of the van is pretty sharp too. loved the red and the blue XLT interiors in that vintage.
I've got a couple pics on my pc of my van but how do I upload them into this forum?
I don't see the option at the bottom. I was working at a Ford heavy truck dealer when that was a new van and did a lot of 7.3 idi headgaskets in cubevans for oil leaks. they all leaked some, man were they a bugger to change
my van, the more I learn is a cobbled together truck but it seems to work well and the wife and kids love it.
the title and all paperwork say its a 94 E250 but the van has a 7.3 powerstroke, E4OD(I think) and a Dana70 disc brake semifloat rear.
it is not very rusty for an Ontario vehicle but lots of dents and interior damage.
the more I drive it the more I like it
Are those Bushwackers, I never got them to fit perfect, I'm picky, took them off after my van was backed into, they look great on yours, I like the aggressive stance, where'd you get the bars on the sides?
The fenders aren't a direct bolt on, you need to clamp it to the lip, then take a pencil lying flat on it's side against the body to trace around it, sanding the flare to get it to go snug to the body, or settle with the gaps. Be satisfied with knowing liquid will be getting in to rot the body, road salt ring a bell, unless you mold them on, raises the cool factor IMHO too. I'm not bashing those who have them, but past experience and reviews helped me form an opinion.
