Walked outside and it's sitting across the street. WOW! I went over there to talk to the guy but nobody was around... 8-lug stuff, looks like he did it right!

Looks like an old Pathfinder conversion. They always threw some lift and big tires on theirs, while the majority of Quigley 4x4 vans are more stock appearing.

My uncle has an older Chevy 4x4 3/4 ton van with 1ton running gear. He has a Roller 502 engine with a 5 speed automatic with a 3 speed overdrive, so its like an 8 speed automatic. He has a 4 inch lift and 35"s under it. He has a detroit in the rear also. This van is sweet! It is his hunting machine, the back is all decked out for hunting in Colorado and stuff, all insulated and a huge bed back there and stuff. He has a rack over the top of it to put hay and stuff for his horses. It is custom painted to match his featherlight horse trailer, it is quite the rig. He is actually thinkging about dropping a cummins in it!

I REALLY like that front clip. Of course I'd ditch the visor. I'd like a passenger van though with some glass in it.

Nice project van. There's one similar to that running around my neck of the woods but he's running 40" swampers. Lots of refab work on it.

Here's my 4X4 work van, don't flex at all but crawls all over the place for what I use it for.

Wher did he happen to find a five speed auto?

I think that was a misprint...

I saw a setup like that earlier this month, in 4WOR or something. a 3 speed auto mated to a 4 speed manual or something. Manual tranny-based gear reduction PLUS the ease of use of an auto when wanted. Interesting idea...

The Fed Ex vans around Marquette MI are lifted 4x4s. With the snow they get up there they need it. Some of the back roads don't get plowed right away. I looked for a used one but never found one.
