@WavesAtDeer ya, pretty classic stalker van
For the love of God, repaint it first lol. You know what you are about more than I. Paint seems like a superfluous thing; but please do! Paint is cheap and doesn't affect much.

If someone asked me on the street to hop in that, I'd run! Truly the classic stalker. Hell, even redneck-ass flames could solve this! How is the motor like?

@BrianC503 right now 12-18 mpg, but I'll see how that goes after dropping the vehicle I'm currently towing behind it.

Is it the 5.4l gas or the diesel? What year did they start putting coil packs in on the spark plugs? I have a 99 ford f250 with about 157,000 miles on the engine. Those coil packs are a pain in the ass no joke. If this thing has coils, I highly suggest you get the kit from an autoparts store to have on backup. And also have a tool set handy. Fords are good they just need wrenching all the time.

I don't think painting it will make it any less pedo. It's a van with no windows, black brown green red blue grey it's still a van with no windows. Though if you made up a fictitious company and had that bitch lookin like a legit company van, you'd look less pedo and you'd probably never get harassed parking it places. Some sort of 24 hour service like roto rooter or whatever the fuck.. just a quick little logo on the side doors and rear.. senior transport or something wholesome.. I bet you'd never get fucked with.

Nice!!! I've been thinking of selling my SUV and grabbing something like this, there are a bunch since I live near NYC.

I also agree with LUPO, add some BS logo about service company and find a free ladder to throw on top. Make that thing look like a real work van and no one will hassle. Even if the cops come up to you in the parking lot you can tell them your on the clock and travel to your job sites.

Those thing really are bang for buck when it comes to rubber tramping and the resale value will always stay with it. Good luck on your build!

Thanks everyone!

@Hudson it's the 5.4 I've heard about the coil packs. I'll have to check that out

@Engineer J Lupo ya I have been thinking about the decal thing. I just wanted white for the contractor look. This thing is seriously clean. Runs amazingly. I can't wait to get some solar and a fan on it.

If you put a roof rack and ladder, you will cut down your options for placing a roof vent and mounting solar panels.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$70.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $70.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $70.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $70.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

It takes forever to do profiles via smartphone.. I'll fill this out on a laptop later.. me and my wife, Straps, recently moved from NC to central Ohio and are looking for like minded folks. Oldschool punk and metal etc is our tastes but not limited to. She does Vocals as well as I.. I also play bass. And am currently working on a demo. Think serial killer true crime punk.. not 'horror punk'.. true horror, yes.
