Simple Kind of Man: 1984 Dodge Caravan 4X4

There comes a time in a man’s life when he has to admit that he has outgrown the lifted 4X4 cars of his youth, and needs a van to haul around his growing family.  It isn’t a easy decision, but it is something that you need to do for the sake of the kids…or do you?  Find this 1984 Dodge Caravan 4X4 offered for $9,500 near Nashville, TN via craigslist.  Tip from Carl.

If this isn’t the best example of having your cake and eating it too, I don’t know what is.  The wife says you need to ditch the Jeep and buy a Dodge Caravan — and that’s excatly what you did. She doesn’t need to know that this Caravan body lives on a ’76 Cherokee chassis with a 4.3 Chevy V6 built motor mated to a 700R4 auto with adjustable lock-up torque convertor, and to all four wheels with 4.56 gears and 32-inch BFG Mud Terrains.  See a crazier minivan?
