Nice ride I would say, if we could all take care of our Vans(vehicles) and Boats like Harold we would all be better off. Congrats Harold.

I had the same style van a while back for work purposes. That Astro van was bullet proof and pulled a 01 X-Star without any problem at all, even with 200K miles on it. I finally sold the van, but it is probably still on the road today. I am pretty sure that it got such good gas mileage on the highway because everything (bearings, etc.) were worn out and very loose.

Tows like a horse, factory towing package, 3:73 Positraction differential, 21 years old, 59K miles, 15.2 mpg average over 30K towing the boat. Can't complain one bit.

I had the AWD package on mine and it was a beast up in the mountains, especially in the winter. IIRC, it got something like 20+ MPG on the highway driving 80-ish.

With the new driveway being almost 600ft long, I added some accessories to the older of my two tow vehicles....I think its the only plow truck in town with MasterCraft, USA Waterski and two bare feet stickers in the rear window

Western 7.5ft Pro Plow
Front End Suspension Enhancement to carry the load
300lbs of ballast in the rear

Nice looking Truck my friend! Did you de-badge? What mods are you planning?

I've done quite a bit to mine already. I'm also over at Tacoma World. Did you sign up on a BB yet?
