INVENTORY

Timberline Vans Available and Upcoming 4x4 Van Inventory

We build 4x4 Ford Econolines and Chevy Express / GMC Savana vans both for spec and to spec. We do carry AWD express vans as well. Although we don't do brokering specifically, we make time to look for vehicles. Tim has literally bought and sold thousands of vans, so we have practice. We do our best to update the inventory page, but vehicles are often given allocation before they arrive, or sold before they are posted.

 

If you are serious, please take the time to familiarize yourself with our product and call us, ask questions, and create a point of contact so we can most efficiently help you. You may submit a request via our CONTACT US form we will gladly put you on the radar. We have some guidelines to help you get started on the right path to van ownership on our VAN GOALS page so please feel free to educate yourself if you are new to vanning.

This is a freshly built 4x4 van with our Timberline coil-spring solid axle conversion van built in metro Denver, Colorado. It was built by one of our affiliates using our 4x4 components and was strictly required to replace all the components in the same fashion we do here with our own builds. This van is in good original shape. It runs excellent, the interior is in nice condition and it has scores of new parts. If you're looking for a heavy-duty diesel 4x4 platform this is a great option with a very long way to go yet.

So we're clear about the pricing, this van can be bought as shown in the photos for $27500. It has a handful of small blemishes on the body, and it's missing 2 seats in the back. If you would like some small mods done to the van and/or, or all the body imperfections fixed, then it's the price as listed. We're pretty cut and dry about pricing, but we know every van has to be 'setup' for people's use, so call or email with questions.



exterior
This rig is in good shape. It was a commercial vehicle as part of a fleet, so it has seen a little use, but it doesn't look like an oil field van or one of these really beat up low mileage rigs you see here and there. The conversion is all new, so the undercarriage looks great, van hasn't been exposed to any significant road salt, so no obvious rust. The paint has decent gloss, no cracks in the windshield, tires, and wheels are new, doors all open and close well.

The van has a handful of small blemishes. There's one by the window, a small nick in one of the doors, light road wear on the rockers, nick in a fender, rear bumper, and some chippy paint on one of the rear doors. It's all pretty superficial stuff, but if you want a show van these are items we can address. It's white and really doesn't show the wear obviously. The photos document the imperfections clearly.

interior

The cabin is in nice shape. It's been well detailed and shows well. It doesn't smell bad or like smoke, just like van. The upholstery is good overall with no major imperfections, does have a little normal wear. The van is missing 2 rows of seats. We can source these if you like, or pull out all the rear seats and put down new carpet/vinyl, without the brackets. (Or any combination of this)

The van is pretty basic, does have front/rear air, tilt, cruise, etc. Everything works and it came in that way.

build / mech / misc
Every time we list a 6.0 we get a ton of 'was this bulletproofed', often from people who don't know exactly what that means and it's totally understandable. The 6.0 motor in the trucks has had a few bumps along the way, but the consensus among most mechanics is they far prefer it to the subsequent 6.4 diesel. So my answer is the same to everyone. The 6.0 van engine comes de-tuned from the truck version. the main pick with the 6.0 was the head gaskets which were often stretched by pulling hard, or running the trucks on a tune because the head bolts would stretch. The vans just did not have as many problems with this because of the tune. If you intend to hot-rod the rig, you can do head studs down the road. These motors had some issues with the sand casting residue in the coolant system taking out the oil and EGR coolers, so if this were my van, I'd do a remote coolant filter, but that's it.

Currently, the motor fires up well and idles smooth, it has an engine block heater if you need it. This is a late 04 so it'll have a more reliable turbo and injectors than the 03-early 04. The only things done to this van after we purchased it were oil, filter, fuel, and air filters. The rest was all happy to go.

For the build, the van has, but is not limited to: all new tie-rods, new premium ball joints, new front brake calipers, rotors, pads, brake lines, new abs sensors keep factory abs intact, new shocks front and rear, custom drive-shafts, new 4-link front end with all new hardware and bushings, reman NP271 t-case with new linkages, LED 4x4 indicator light, has manual locking hubs, axle is from an 05-2010 F-250 with under 100k, new fluids in front/rear diffs, t-case and trans, The van carries a 12 month 12k mile warranty on 4x4 conversion parts nation wide, labor local included, free 1000 mile check through if you're local. This van should pass emissions anywhere, exhaust is unmodified.

I've driven this van and it's all there. It does have some memory steer because the ball joints were put in pretty tight. These will loosen up over time, but it's going to take a few thousand miles. Everything is super tight otherwise and operates just how it should. Call with ?s, Tim 720 515 0427 - Timberline Vans

Van is available for viewing by appointment only, either in Golden or Westminster, whichever is better for you. Vehicle will be sold through Timberline Vans and comes with 60 day temp, taxes collected as applicable.

vehicle summary

This is a fresh Timberline 4x4 coil spring conversion van built here at our shop in Golden, Colorado. You may or may not follow us, but we've been building vans for 7 years and have close to 120 on the road plus many kits we've sold. Our setup is a coil spring solid axle front end and as listed below, there's little that isn't touched. This particular van is a very rare 10 foot non dually box van under 10k gvw. It has over 6'4" of interior clearance height, the van looks excellent, runs and drives just great for a big 4x4, and it's perfectly laid out for a really amazing build. 

We pride ourselves on creating platforms for peoples' dream vans. This is a 1-owner Colorado van that was leased by TRC used to do environmental impact studies. It's been totally re-purposed for an overland or commercial build. The van has a few miles on the chassis, but the motor runs excellent, it only has freeway mileage, and basically everything but the motor has either been replaced or totally gone through. There's no reason you can't put another 300k on the chassis, and if at some point you need a crate motor, we do them for about $5200 from Ford with a 3yr unlimited mileage warranty. If you're after a solid high top platform and don't just have a $150k check to write, this is a sound option and a head turner for sure. 

exterior

This van is in good shape for the age. The paint on the fenders and doors is original. We had the hood and roof painted due to paint chipping, and the box was totally stripped and re-done in enamel for longevity. It's nice and shiny and should hold up well to the abuse. The wheels and tires are obviously new. The windshield is new, doors open and close easily, etc. It has Baja lights up front on 2 switches. The doors on the box all open and close well, it had side access doors which we've just built a cover panel for on the inside, but you can easily access inside the box, standing outside, if you were so inclined to build some storage boxes. 

The van has an onboard generator. It runs well, but will need something repaired with the idle switch, may possibly be an airflow meter that's not doing its job. The generator/inverter puts out 110v on 2x 20 amp circuits and it's pre-wired into the inside of the box, it puts out 110v no problem, but without holding the throttle or the choke it idles out. This may just be a setting. If this is integral to your build, we can have it taken care of. 

The undercarriage looks great, with no obvious leakage, few crusties from the age, but nothing wet at all. We've included photos to show what it looks like, this van has never seen road salt, so there's no noticeable rust at all. The overall height on the van is a little less than 10' tall. We do have a roof A/C unit that we believe is functional but it makes the van taller than is ideal for friendly travel. 

interior

The cabin on this van is superb. This is the original upholstery! You can tell it has mostly freeway mileage or it just would've been thrashed by now. The carpet and seating was removed to make way for us to cut the pass-through. We did this to make box access easier, as well as to allow the seats to tilt back further. The van is hard loaded, even has power seat.

 

Everything works nicely. The dash, doors, upholstery, all very nice condition.

The van came in with a mess of cabinetry, counter, boxes, diagnostic holders, etc, which just weren't great for anything but the vans' previous life, so we basically gutted it and started over.

 

The plywood on the walls is mounted over 2" of spray foam insulation, approximately the correct amount to get a good r-value. It's really well insulated for a work vehicle, people would've been in it in all seasons, so it makes sense. The roof also has at least 2" of insulation. 

We stripped the floor, epoxy/sawdust filled all the cracks so they're well sealed, we replaced a piece of flooring that was bad, and then re-coated the wood in a high build high traffic floor coating designed for a vehicle like this. The van had aluminum trim in the corners which we replaced with wood, looks great. The pass-through was carefully trimmed, and we made the trim panels to seal the side doors until you figure out what to do with them. 

The van has a Maxx Fan that we have some wiring options for depending on what you want to do. It also has the A/C port up top if you want to put in another fan, or a skylight, or cut it slightly bigger to make a roof access port so you can camp up on the roof as well. You can really use your imagination on this one. The box is extremely sturdy and with all the paneling glued and screwed, we believe mounting even heavy objects to the walls should be supportive. 

build / mech / misc

This van has been gone through in detail. The main rebuilt components: transmission is 4R100 rebuilt with updated internals, all new seals, new OEM electronics, and wear components, low stall Branting torque converter.

The t-case has been rebuilt, NV271, and we did a tune-up on the motor, new plugs, fuel filter, oil, filter, new air filter. It runs great and for a 5.4 it has decent power. The van isn't light but it's not super super heavy either, it's tall, but with our front end setup it feel surprisingly nimble around the corners, doesn't feel like it's going to tip over. 

Our Timberline conversion includes but is not limited to: all new tie-rods, new moog premium ball joints, new front brake calipers, rotors, pads, brake lines, new abs sensors keep factory abs intact, new shocks front and rear, custom drive-shafts, new 4-link front end with all new hardware and bushings, LED 4x4 indicator light, has manual locking hubs, axle is from 2006 F-350 with around 100k miles, new fluids in front/rear diffs, t-case and trans, has Dana 70 full floating rear diff, many other new parts.

We've put about 300 miles on the van, it's easy to drive, tracks well, shifts nice, 4x4 works easy, should be great for a long time to come, perfectly good to fly in and drive home anywhere. This box is pretty tall to be shipped. The van carries a 12 month 12k mile warranty on 4x4 conversion parts nationwide, labor local included, free 1000 mile check through if you're local. The transmission is 18/18k here in Colorado. This van should pass emissions anywhere, exhaust is unmodified. Please note this is a 200k mile van and not new, it has had a ton of work done but it's still a used vehicle, so have realistic expectations. Call with ?s, Tim 720 515 0427 - Timberline Vans
