    Yeah, Vans are definitely rare in the sport of pulling. It was hooking pretty good, but theres always margin for better, right?

    This Van came from the factory with a pathfinder 4WD kit, we just beefed it up and put a bigger motor and better transmission and transfer case and other things over the years, and planning on updating somethings this winter.
