Hey everyone,
My wife and I decided last year that we wanted to start taking more vacations with our two Aussies. This provided justification me to purchase another toy. After searching for about 6 months, I found a fairly clean, maintained β€˜88 GMC G2500 equipped with a 305/TH400. It’s my understanding that the vehicle was owned by a funeral home for several years so the interior is in excellent shape. Thinking it was likely used as a first call vehicle or for flowers. After purchasing, I gave the van a tune-up; added some new Cooper Trendsetters; adapted a rear A/C unit out of a β€˜95 conversion van to the OE system; replaced & added several A/C components then charged the system myself; installed some 3M thinsulate; installed some cedar tongue and groove on the ceiling; installed new ACC then built a room in the rear for our one extremely reactive β€œcrazy” dog. Just took a 2,000 road trip in it and she worked out great! Plan to continue finishing the interior, upgrading to an LQ4/4L80e; doing some bodywork and enjoy her for years to come. Thanks for allowing me to join!
