Van Life Elevated

AJs 4x4 Vans was born 8 years ago when I saw a 4x4 van online playing in the snow. Needing to have one of my own, I purchased an old 1995 Ford E350 7.3L diesel with high miles and injector problems. My brother and I owned an auto repair shop at the time, so I decided to do the 4x4 conversion myself. After a bit of research, I purchased a kit online and spent a few months piecing it together. Even though this first van wasn’t a gem, I truly loved the process of building it and when I was done, I took it on many trips to Baja.


Folks eventually started asking me to do conversions for them, which at first, I wasn’t interested in doing, I only wanted to enjoy the van I built. Eventually a friend persuaded me to build one for him. I refined the process and the resulting build came out far better. At this point the bug for building 4x4 vans had fully taken me over and I decided to start building them part time.

Fast forward a few years I sold my half of the automotive shop and started AJs 4x4 Vans. Now I get to live out my passion full time building 4x4 vans, so folks can get out and enjoy Van Life Elevated.
