A couple of y'all saw my "beast" on a recent hay thread but I thought I'd post it here since it is a diesel. This is my 1997 E350 Clubwagon. Hubby converted it to 4 wheel drive and put a 4 inch lift on it. Why? Just because he can. It does come in handy in the field. I have 6 kiddos so this is my mamma mobile/farm truck. I haul my horses with it too. We do have a "farm truck" as well, but the A/C doesn't work right now so my van gets put to work most of the time during these 105 degree days.
That picture of raking hay with the van is a classic!
I tend to get a lot of stares. Our hay field is right on the corner of a county road that everybody has to pass to get to their house. Hey, I have A/C, radio, and my younger kids can be with me and watch movies. What more could a stay at home farm girl want?!
How well does that hold up? Been thinking about doing my rockers on my dually.[/QUOTE]
Yup it's holding up great! Really tough stuff and easy maintenance. We're actually considering doing the bottom gray stripe around our van in it. It's pretty chipped up from gravel and various dings. Hubby also had a little 6 ft. Flatbed trailer jack knife on him once while backing it up and hit the back side of the van. So we're going to rhino line just that gray bottom half of it and that should take care of current and future scuff marks.
