      Since it appears TurbioTease still has bought anything....

      This popped up on another forum I frequent today. If I had a wad of cash burning a hole in my pocket, and was looking for this type of vehicle, I'd be giving this some very serious consideration.......

      If that was a 4x4 it would be just about perfect!

      It's odd that neither GM or Ford has ever offered a 4x4 full-size van. There was the AWD Chevy Express but I think that has been cancelled for 2010. But a Ford E-250 with 4WD and the F-250's front suspension would be a very nice setup. Clearly a niche market but then again the old Astro/Safari sold pretty well in 4WD guise.

      Delicat's L300 aka Mitsushi

      Late model 1991 SuperExceed running of veggie oil/diesel. Purchased directly from Japan as a grade 4/BB. Automatic, only 107 000km, LSD, 3 points rear seatbelts. Absolutely no rust with clean roof and tailgate. Everything works (even crystallight shades), needs nothing. I will include free weekly wvo refill for the first 3 months and can provide regular supply after. I can also get you some filtration gears to get you started if interested. I'll be attaching a whole bunch of pictures but follow the included links for even more pictures and details. As you can see from the pictures, the paint and body are in amazing condition!

      lots of pics in that thread and a full build-up and mod list.

      UPDATE! For all ye of little faith who thought I'd never pull the trigger...

      I'm gonna go talk to a salesman today about a 2011 Wrangler Unlimited Sahara in either orange or NATO sand. Hope to put a deposit down today and take delivery whenever a suitable 2011 hits the lot - the dealership has been highly recommended and I went to high school with the owner's son.

      The real question is, do you want to continue on this thread, or start a new one once you take delivery?

      while i do love the nato sand, i feel like it could be worth it to wait 1 more year for a new drivetrain, mayhaps a diesel?

      Go NATO. That color is fantastic on the Jeep.

      Best thread in TCL history, IMO. No epic lawls, but it was informative as hell and everybody was on their best behavior. And like 5 people got the bug from it.

      Not until you update us on your Jeep (keep or no keep?) and the mods you've done to it. You mentioned you had some stuff laying around ready to mod the Jeep with, did you? Pictures??

      Agreed. Especially after your recent swap-a-roo I think this thread needs at least a minor update. What say you Turbio?

      EDIT: Just saw your little post about not spending much time on here anymore. So... perhaps update is wishful thinking?

      Add 1 more to the list of people who got the bug from this thread. I purchased a 97 tacoma, 100% because of this thread.

      So the million dollar question: did turbio pull the trigger?

      The Jeep seems to be flat towed by the van, yet there is nothing attached to the van's hitch... chains?
