I was just wondering if anyone had any pics of their service vehicles. I'm getting ready to re-letter our service van and would love to see other examples.

Thanks in advance.

Nice looking van, I think it would be nice as long as it is something that can be read pretty fast by people driving by...and neighbors of customers would have time to read it no matter how long it is...lol....

Mine looks just like this:

It has about 200,000 miles on it and has served me well. Parked next to it is my 1978 245DL, it has over 200k on it and was the first service vehicle I used. If you have noticed the lack of advertisement on them, its because most everybody here already knows who I am and what I do.

Guess I couldn't help it.

So this is not my van. Just funny as hell....

suzuki got a bum rap on that, the real problem was the samurai was the first inexpensive 4x4 on the market so  anyone could go out and buy a 4x4, even the clueless ppl that had no idea how to drive one, its not a sports car, doesn't handle like one, and ppl that tried to drive them like one were the ones that tipped their trucks

its kinds like consumer reports saying the kenmore range is better than the frigidaire, its the same damn range, it just depends who uses it and who you ask

mines been 6 inches taller than stock for over 8 years and i've never had it off all 4's

well except on the trails where loss of stability is to be expected on 45+ degree inclines  :yikes:, but even then i still have yet to roll it
