That's good. I had a Chevy van with the 6.2, which was the predecessor to the 6.5. Best thing I ever did was rip that greasy old POS out and replace it with a 454 . 454 is the same external dimensions as 6.2/6.5. Slides right in and bolts down on the mounts . When Jim got Mitsubishi to build them a diesel, it was a huge leap forward .

Yeah, the 6.0 Ford engine definitely has its problems, but I have an EGR delete with new oil cooler on order. That will be next week's project, and I am really looking forward to it. Ugh.

Also, FYI - if you click on the "Direct" choice on the right side of the photobucket screen, and then paste in THAT link...your pictures will come up right in your post.

Look into "bunk bed futons" for sleeping and lounging. I love them in my shorty. Had to cut one down alittle to fit across the back.

Awesome BUS!!!!

I have exactly the same bus 2002 but not 4x4, I will love to hear more about the 4x4 details, like trans, converter, suspension, type of axles etc, maybe some more pictures of front and rear axles ?

Thanks and good luck.

welcome.

Welcome! I'm a dirtbike guy from out west too! My build has a minimalist feel too. I am very anti-GLAMP. I wan t a Big metal tent, that rolls. I however am currently working on a water system. Just a sink and outdoor shower.. My bus CAN pull a toy trailer, but i made the back 8ft a garage with the wheelchair/bike lift! Im jealous of the 4x4 though!!!
