Re: Is it just me, or is this happening to a lot of vans lat

Call me crazy, but thankfully nobody was hurt and aside for the money. What a great story!! Look at the lengths you are going to to save her... Its a classic underdog story, you'll be telling the tale for years to come with pic's to prove it. I can't wait to see how your van turns out. Best wishes. ...

Thanks, but I have it covered now.

Re: Wheels and tires off '03 Safari.

Took me a sec to figure out what a bow tie was, but with the help of your pictures I figured it out. I agree, these vans look pretty domestic and I too am a Sportmobile fan. I think your on to something, especially in black like the photo of the newer van. When I pulled the cladding, picked wheels a...

Re: Wheels and tires off '03 Safari.

Hey Herbie,

You got it, they have the same center caps as the ones in your picture, except that the GMC is in red. What do you mean a Safari conversion? Isn't the emblem the only difference.

In a Jamb? New trick for dealing with torssion keys.

I've pulled my keys three times now and without the special $140.00 tool and bending the crap out of two C-clamps. This method puts me at ease and makes the chore a bit safer I believe. In a jamb I sacrificed a bottle jack. The screw jack is not only cut to a point but at a sort of 45 deg. angle to ...

Re: Another lifted Safari!!

Thanks guys. I must admit shes growing on me and my neighbors. Took a little getting used to, but I can see it now. I put the plastic back over the front bumper and was like no way! It needs a custom bumper and then a swing out tire carrier. Next on my list anyhow. Well, I just put 40 miles on the n...

You know you love your Astrofari when your buddy asks you to go surfing and you tell him, well...actually I have a few things to do. Just to run home and put a few finishing touches on your last project. Or you spend $200.00 on bench top, dog bed seat covers and your daughter says "Cool dad, Marchel...

Re: Another lifted Safari!!

Thanks and I did stray from the original tire I wanted, but these tires don't feel any different than the stockers on the freeway and suppose to wear and handle the lift better than the BFG AT's. As you can see I removed the running boards and cladding. So I just need to hit the junk yards and get t...

Another lifted Safari!! continued.

I know some of you are curious, so I wanted to make sure you got the whole picture and by the way it's 35 3/4" from ground to top of the wheel well in rear and 35 1/4" at front actually looks a little higher in front or at least level. Rides good too, need to do something about shackle bushings in r...

Sorry, should have posted pic's under members vans and can only post three at a time. I like pic's too, worth a thousand words if you ask me. Anyhow, will post pic's of the CV joint and boot so you can see what I am talking about.

I was going to wait until she was complete, but ran into an issue that I need to run by you guys. The big question in a lot of our minds was/is CV joints and boots with re-indexed keys installed. First of all I drove her to get an alignment Monday and couldn't really tell that I had done any work on...

Re: Wanted plastic trim on front fender flares.

Funny...my van came with cladding and running boards. I didn't like the look of the running boards, so I took them off and pieces of the cladding were missing. So I went to three different junk-yards and pulled the pieces off three different donor vehicle's. Sanded and painted to match. Well, while ...
