New guy in Washinton

Post by iamjsmith » Mon Feb 26, 2018 6:32 pm

Hey everyone! New guy here just wanting to introduce myself.

Recently picked up a 2003 AWD Astro. (if you look at CL ads as much as I do I'm sure you might have seen it for sale in the PDX CL)
2003 with only about 70k on it... 4 inch lift on it. Runs and drives just like the day it came out of the factory (knock on wood) and the interior looks like no one even knew they could get into it!

super excited!!

Future plans:
ARB awning
Swivel seat for at least the front pass, maybe the middle buckets if they will work.. (do they? ..anyone?)
I also have to put some steps on the side. the misses and the youngins cant get in and out too easy.
Id like to put a light bar or a few offroad lights on it as well.

here are a few pix.
hope you guys like it.

Welcome! I love your seats. All we ever see in SoCal is the base interior.

Hi,
Very nice van. The 4" lift looks good. What size are the tires?
Is it Overland lift?
Are the rear springs from S10, or shackles?
What are the shocks ?
Does it have torsion bar key?
Does it have flipped ball joints?

Thank you,

AP
