    awsome. i was looking for diesels so i could do a Vegi oil conversion and found these Vanagons. they have so much custom potential. I want one of these vans and an AMC Eagle now.

    Thanks man, that's really helpfull. Looks like the suspension lift was fairly simple to do. I've just bought some 15" Mercedes steel rims for mine, as I don't think 16s will clear the arches even with a lift. Since it's only a 2wd and not a syncro, I probably won't even go near any mud or steep hills, I just want the look!!!! Thanks for your help Dave

    Dave, do a search on google for "Bundeswehr T3" you should find a bunch of them. Also German e-bay sells quite a few of them. Check this link to see how I came up with the lift: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=2405738 Eric

    Dude, you van is cool! I'm in the UK putting together a German Army look T25 just like yours. Could you tell me where you found the pictures to show the camo pattern and stuff? Could you also tell me how you did the suspension lift, as my van is not a syncro, but I would like to lift it. Apparently Syncro springs are no good for a 2wd van Thanks for your help Dave

    88 is one of the better years. 86 and up got the 2.1 liter engine. Look for seam rust, once it starts, it's hard to fix. good luck!
