They need to do some homework on the gross weights, capacity and towing so as not to mislead people, kind of like Ford did to us when we bought it before understanding the numbers.

Their van weighs 6800 lbs and they say it can tow 6700 lbs. That makes GCW of 13,500 which is not available except with diesel engine. More like 12,600 for this assuming a 3.73 rear end which would drop the tow to 5800 lbs with no cargo. And of course we know that anything you load into the van reduces the tow capacity by the same amount. *They do say it has a Dana front end 4.10 so maybe that increases the tow and gross capacity some, but then I doubt it would get the mpg they are claiming.

Otherwise it is a nice looking conversion I suppose. I wonder if Quigley is doing the 4x4 for them?

This seems to be a scam of some sort...
