Hello out there! I know there are a couple other posts out there on this topic, so I'll try to limit it to questions that haven't already been answered.
We just had our 7th kid and need to upgrade our seating capacity. I really like the NV, and love the idea of a 4WD conversion on it!
Originally I was sold on a Quigley conversion, until I realized they were on the other side of the country. Then I was thinking Advanced, but I've heard some not so great reviews on their work. I found out today that Tim Dahle Nissan in South Jordan, UT does a conversion using all Nissan parts. They are endorsed by Nissan and keep the original warranty intact. (Ken Garff has it done by Advanced)
I really like the idea of getting the conversion at the time of purchase so I can roll the cost into the financing. However, I'm concerned as I've seen a couple of these get lemoned out, and I'm not sure how the conversion would affect that should I end up with a lemon. My wife thinks we should have the van for a while first to make sure it's not going to get lemoned, but I know if I go that road she'll back off the conversion later.
So in the end, I have 2 questions:
1. Has anyone had any experience with Tim Dahle's 4x4 conversion? Is it as good as Quigley? Should I be looking somewhere else?
2. Does anyone know how the conversion would affect the vehicles lemon law status? I know complete aftermarket would not be covered, and may even void the lemon law altogether; but what if its done through the dealer?
Thanks in advance for your help!
