Default 8 wheels 2 freedom

Hey everyone,

Jumping in to say Hi and tell about our van. A buddy and I just picked up a 1996 3500 ram extended van with the 5.9. 153k on it.

It seems to run and drive great!

We are planning to build out the back to live in and go on about a 14-15k mile road trip starting in June with it.

Started ripping it apart last night and checking everything out.

Interested in finding maintenance schedules and common issues with these vans. Will direct exact issues so far to the specific forum area. Anyways super excited about this van and building it out! Can't Wait

8 wheels 2 freedom- two guys, a van, some mt bikes, and a dog.

Pretty much doing a full tune up and working on any leaks we find. Not to many so far. We have gutted the complete interior and working on cleaning her fully inside. They we will start building up beds and storage in the back and a counter mid van.
