Canadian Safari

Post by lithiumwagon »

Hello all,

My name is Ken. I picked up my 1998 GMC Safari SLX (only option A/C) as a parts and people hauler for my business about a year ago. Since then I sold my 07 Tundra which was my car hauler.

As of recently I seized the motor at 288,000km of old age here's a vid for all you face book followers

The goal for my van is to combine the people/ parts hauler with towing capabilities of a truck. Hence the second pic without its sub frame and the purchase of a 2003 5.3l V8.

Thanks for the great forum and I probably will start a thread of my build aka: Frank! In the engine section.
