Default Newbie with 44 Van saying hello


Hi all,
I'm a new member and simply wanted to introduce myself. I look forward to corresponding and interacting with you guys. I've attached a picture of my Dodge: '96 B3500 with a Quigley 44 conversion.

Thanks, I'm pretty stoked on it. Been intently searching for any 4x4 van for the better part of a year, finally made a deal on this one. Only makes it that much sweeter that it's a Dodge!

I'll get snap some picks tomorrow when there's more daylight. It's a multi-link, coil spring setup with a Dana 44. I believe the majority of conversion parts used by Quigley were sourced from Ford with the exception of some proprietary mounts and brackets. It's a very well done conversion. Former Lynchburg, VA DPW truck (as if the color didn't give it away).

Nice!

Question, do all vans look like they have a small lift to them?

I ask because I have the B3500 SLT and it's pretty high. Do they come this way? Interesting I thought.

Mine has a 3" lift installed by Quigley back in the day. As far as I know and observe, the vast majority of Dodge Vans will have a lower stance consistent with other 2WD vans. Not to say there isn't a strong possibility different springs may have been installed on your van at some point in it's long life.
