Hola! Yeah, I just joined. ANYWHO.
I have a 1986 Dodge Ram van.. 'cept it looks more like a small RV really. Yeah, it's a "Merry Miler"... Anyway, I plan to customize it this summer and before I buy anything, I need some info.
What type of Lowering bracketts/shocks should I use? The same as a Truck's ? 'Cause I wanna lower it 2" or so.
Plus, anyone wanna give me some ideas on what I should theme it after? ^_^; As soon as I get my darned scanner to work, I could show ya'll a pic or two of my Bob. ... Bob the RV... whee..

Hey Morticia, welcome!

Funny, theres a 1979-ish black hearse for sale in Kittery Maine. I stopped to look at it. Very nice shape, black, original curtains, etc. (has a real wood coffin in the back too!) eerie!

The only changes that I see were made, are the addition of Cragar S/S mags.. which really gives it that 60's look! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" />

Back in the 80's there was a Chevy in the midwest done up like a hearse, it had a second set of cab doors mounted backwards behind the front doors, suicide style. It towed a real casket on a trailer, converted into a HUGE ice chest. Wish I had some pics of it, lost a lotta van stuff in a fire 12 yrs ago... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="images/icons/frown.gif" />
