Personalized plate: ADV VAN

In Feb, 2012, I purchased my “Adventure Van” from the original owner. It is a cargo van and I am in the process of converting it into the ultimate camping/moto-hauling/race-car-towing vehicle! The Adventure Van is a 2003 Ford E350 V10 Cargo. It was sold with the following options:

  • 6.8L Engine
  • 3.73 LSD
  • Power group (power locks, windows, mirrors, keyless entry)
  • Exterior upgrade package: sport wheel cover, chrome bumpers
  • Side/rear glass in cargo doors
  • Cruise control
  • HD Trailer Tow package
  • AMFM Cassette/CD
  • Auxiliary battery

It was purchased with the following modifications:

  • Action Vans lift kit w/ Bilstein shocks
  • 285/75/16 Tires
  • A single bench seat in the rear (the rest was empty cargo)

Since purchase, I have added the following:

  • Kenwood DNX-6990HD In-dash navigation receiver
  • Rearviewsystems reverse camera
  • SCT tuner w/ 3 tunes by 5 Star Tuning: Performance, economy, &towing. This also calibrates the speedometer for my larger tires.
  • SecondSkinAudio Damplifier Pro & Heat Wave Pro throughout the cargo area
  • Tru-Cool transmission cooler
  • Curt class 4 hitch receiver (replacing the OEM class 3)
  • Rockford Fosgate Prime R1682 6x8-Inch Full Range coaxial Speakers
