Been going threw the parts this morning and haven't found anything rare for the most part. They saved everything even if it was junk. All the extra side and rear door are junk going to pull off small parts from them. My extra parts aren't as good as I hoped they were

Good to see you got your van fixed. They use the spring mounts from Joe?? Much better stance and I bet a whole lot better ride(now with more that a inch of front spring movement Shocked)

Not a lot of cash now, but there always something you can do on these that doesn't cost alot. Ripped out the wood floor and carpet to see what going on down there



Floor is still nice and solid


My haul under the floor $1.41

Insulted the Doghouse, got a tip from Millwright at the nats about this product. Way cheaper than Dynamat. It thinner than Dynamat so I put on 2 layers. They sell it at Lowes for about $15 a roll and it took 4 rolls to do
