Got this creeper a few years ago and it's taken me and the fam all around the NE. Spent most of my focus getting it in good working order - new shocks all around, upper and lower control arms, alternator, battery, plugs and wires, pcv, water pump, plenum plate, misc bearings, breaks, rotors, break lines, tires, transmission (ouch!) and of course, windshield wipers smile

Now that it's running solid, I'm gearing up to rip out the insides and build it out with a bed, fridge, sink, power, etc. Found a working 12v fridge and sink components at the local u-pull it from a poor van that had caught on fire frown I'll post some updates in the next few months as they happen.

Anyway, Hi to everyone and if there's any vanners in the Philly area, hit me up!

Welcome! If you're going to use the 12volt fridge I would highly recommend using more than just the one battery.

Thanks for the advice Starlord! I've got one 110a/hr battery now and would like to add another in the near future. I figure til then I'll just run the fridge when I'm driving (I've got an alt charger) and only keep drinks in there. But given I've got a fan ordered and a 12v TV already in there, I'll need more juice for sure. Got my eye on some solar panels / charger next smile

Welcome! I had a 94 Dodge high-top conversion. Probably the best vehicle I've ever owned.....if the rust worm wouldn't have taken it I would still be driving it.

Hi Snotty - I'm right around Media if you know where that is (~20 min SW of the city). Probably not the best time for events these days but if so, let me know if anythings coming up!
