Greetings from Alabama. Just bought a 96 GMC Vandura 3500 extended van with 18k original miles. Ive owned 2 square bodies in my business over the span of 30 years and nothing will compare to the power the old ones have.

First van was a 81 Chevy G10, second was 95 GMC Vandura 2500. Then I moved onto a 2002 GMC and then a 2007 Ford 3/4 ton. First off this engine they put in new vans HORRIBLE. I saw a meme the other day that said "Worse gas mileage than a large V8 and the power of a 4 cyl".....so I decided to go back Old Skool and this van I have now if a beast. never owned a 1 ton van and this thing is stiff

Its been sitting up awhile and all fluids drained, replaced, interior gutted/ they was a lot of electronics in it all that was removed. Also will be removing the rear air as it gets in the way of it being a workvan.

Glad I found this site looks like Im going to need it!
