Hello party people.. I have been a long time van fan, and I just got my first van / project.

It's a 1992 Dodge 250 conversion. Only two owners before me, and has been operational for some time. It's recently made a trip to Tahoe through a snow storm so I have a good feeling about the condition of the inner workings. The second row of captains chairs were removed by the original owner, and a bench from another van was bolted down in it's place :-/ Hopefully there is a way to nice that up in the future. other than that this is the blue beauty that will be taking up a lot of my time from now on!!

My first goal is to find a replacement wheel for the front there that matches the rest, and possibly a spare smile The roof rack has a chunk missing as well. I can't wait to get moving on this thing, any pointers are appreciated!

thats a pretty clean looking Dodge! you can probably find an entire set of wheels used for the same price it would cost to replace the one factory wheel. Good luck in what ever you decide to do with it, and Welcome!

Welcome aboard. Nice Mopar!

Those wheels came on Ramchargers as well me thinks. A fellow in our club put a set of those on his 96 hi-top conversion. He sent them out to be powder-coated Argent Silver and boy are they sweet!
