    This is a pic of a van I got for free, which ended up costing me about a grand after the previous owner refused to turn over the title. Now I have both. After months of being on the road I was finally able to get her running and now the decision has to be made. Do I lift it 2 inches or put slightly smaller tires on it to lower it?

    Rent it out for the Prom..... j/k... Long van why would you want to lift it? If you were going to make it into a 4wd then yes lift it.. If not just do some nice rims and tires and have some fun.

    If you still have the seats in it you could make some good money with it..

    red van.jpg Make money how with it? A shuttle service? I really like this setup, but can't afford to lift it. Just a thought. Still have all but 1 row of seats. Was gonna use it as a work van..Taking all the seats out..

    This is what I was shooting for. I like this setup alot. Just can't afford the swap. It will be used as a work van and I will keep the seats for now. red van.jpg

    What you have to do is look for people that are moving and need a small truck. Yours would be good for Apt moves. Get a dolly,some straps and tiedowns and when you reply back to them tell them you have Ref's and help if you need it. Look in the for sale Sec for people selling Treadmills and stuff that are large and tell them to put in their ad's that they have a mover for a price, When they sell it they give the buyer your number and you give them a fair price.. I have been doing this for about 2 years on weekends and after work and get a lot of repeat Biz and about 75% of the ad's I reply to I get. I have moved stuff from Lake Placid,NY out to the Hemptons, It's good easy fast cash BUT remember Becarefull and act right in front of the customer....
