The fender flares I got from AutoAccessory4u.com at half the price of the Bushwackers flares. They screw on to fender lip and has a double stick tape for where it rests along the body. The Nuf bars are from WAAG, their listed as side tubs. WAAG doesn't list them for vans any more but they do stock the some part # ? I personally don't like the way they mount on and tubing is not that thick as you can see in the pic i posted they been very easy, I hit a tree stump covered in grass backing my RV into an opening. And yes I do take it off road (2WD) nothing to extreme as I still use this for work every day.With all the sand here in FL getting stuck happens very easy, that where the wench comes in to play and also to help friends that get stuck.

1987 Ford E250 4x4

Just bought this 1987 Ford E250 4x4, It sports a Fuel Injected 300 6 cylinder with a C6 trans, My wife just gave the OK for new wheels and tires so I will be looking today (before she changes her mind!) I will post pictures with the new wheels when they are on! I plan on converting it to a camper van. I found a WARN reciever style winch mount on craigslist last night, when I was there I asked the guy if he had anything else and he pulls out a brand new 60" High Lift Jack and a set of mounting brackets that were still in orig package, got them for $40. I love it when a plan starts coming together!

Here's a picture with the new wheels, painted Bumper & Grille and some big 7" lights.

I would have to agree , nice ride

edit , I'm not so keen on the slider but I am getting tired of the rattling coming from the barn doors on my present van .

It has the slider door, always thought I wanted the Barn Doors but I am liking the Slider. I just ordered American Racing Teflon coated wheels with some Goodyear Wrangler tires, The wheels will be in at the end of the week and I will post a pic when they are on!

the EFI 6cyl is actually suprizingly torquey.
all this thing needs is a ZF 5spd instead of the C6

Keep the C-6, they are bulletproof and better than a stick in rough terrain, a torque converter is superior to a clutch due to it being a torque multiplier. You just need a heavy cooler and electric fan on it to keep airflow in low speed situations, clutch engine fans do not move enough air at low speeds off road.
I love trim rings and dog dishes on painted steel, aftermarket wheels are overdone and none last long, I have 2 bent ones, and the finish gets damaged by the heat and brake dust, as I refuse to spend time constantly cleaning them, the studs hurt my knuckles.

I also prefer

the subdued (black wheels and bumper) over the glitzy chrome (all around). Unfortunatly I have the standard glitz.
