    Anyone ever drive a Kaiser Military truck before??

    Back then the only ones with a locker would be the ones used by the USMC. WWW.idahomotorpool.com Has a good selection of the newer ones but if you want to stick with the older ones I would look at www.vintagemilitarytrucks.com

    What SUVs do you recommend?

    I have a 2001 Chevy Suburban 4x4 3/4 ton. It goes everywhere I need it to and more. Unless you are going to go out rock crawling in the desert with it it is a great vehicle. Extremely dependable Best riding full size SUV by far You never have to say "that won't fit in there"

    Any SUV dwellers?

    It's looking like I will soon be on the road living in my Chevrolet Suburban. I'm pretty sure I have it down to just what I need and nothing more.  My personal effects I will send to my sister for safe keeping.  I want my remaining years to be spent on my 3 retirement hobbys. Photography,  metal...

    Vintage Station Wagon Living Article

    I don't want to make it sound like they were everywhere in Michigan,  but you could see rooftop tents on wagons in many of the campgrounds in the upper peninsula.  You would see people sleeping in vans, pickup toppers, old International scouts, suburbans,  etc. Good times .

    Station Wagon - Positive Experiences

    I love the xc70 awd wagons, they are a great platform for camping. I have seen two of them with about a 2~3" lift with BFG all terrains on one and interco tsl radial mud tires on the other.

    Chevy Express Rear Differential Info

    All of the rear differentials available are all more than up to the task. The Express 3500 usually got the 10.5" full floating corporate 14 bolt. It was used from 1999 to 2015 in the 3500s. Check the build code sticker inside of the glove box door.  Look for one that says G80 which tells you...

    Question for 1 ton 3500 Chevy van owners.

    I just looked at options for your 3500. The only transmissions listed is the 4l80e,  pretty much a bullet proof trans. If it's whining in first you could well have a problem developing in it or more likely the torque converter is locking up when it shouldn't be.  The longer you listen to it the...

    Box Van Conversion

    Not as much as a class C.  They have decent ground clearance  Most will have a locker in the rear differential.  Average pick up truck size tires, less $ and you can get all terrains or mud terrain tires. Plenty of room below to install water tanks.
