Thought I would post some pictures of the Family Truckster this morning. Wash and wax, and new Dash Mat to keep the dash from baking in the Texas summer. I have the Weather Tech mats in all 3 rows, with their cargo mat and bumper protector in the rear well. The third row is stowed because we have a mobility scooter that we put in the back for the wifey. There is a custom cargo mat covering where the 3rd row is. New Sumitomo tires this past week. Eventually we’ll get the hood deflector, Mopar mud flaps, and the full set of window deflectors, along with window tint for driver and passenger. Wife loves the van and so do I. 55,750 miles.

I opted for some "real" mudflaps instead of the "looks only" Mopar units.
These Rally Armor flaps actually keep road spray off the van, which means I can keep my black van clean much easier. View attachment 66162
My wife wouldn’t go for those, sadly. Is that an Acclaim or Spirit I see? Based on the taillight I would guess Acclaim.

The OP's silver van is so....peaceful looking. You could rob a bank on Main St. and drive off normally and nobody would look twice.

By the way, what year is it?
That’s what I was going for…stealth minivan. Nobody would think twice. Grandpa’s van. It’s a 2019, former Enterprise fleet rental.

My wife loves them, it keeps me from being out cleaning the van all the time because they actually work unlike the factory units.

It was a 95 Acclaim I gave $100 for it, drove it til the 2.5L launched a rocker, then swapped in a modded 3.0/4-speed auto.

Thats awesome, I had a 1991 as my first car, it was silver, 2.5L and I loved the damn thing. There were turbo models of the same car, not sure if those were good or not but heck I would love to find one stashed away somewhere today and drive it.

I've always preferred the 3.0 in them personally. I know they came in the Turbo models, but the Turbo engines are finicky and only make 10hp more than the 3.0. I usually mod the 3.0s, which take very well to simple stuff. I opened up 32hp/23ft-lbs with a simple intake, 52mm TB, ported plenum, and full exhaust, which puts it at 173hp/194ft-lbs and made it quite fun to rip around in.
Prior to that one, I had another 95 that I built a high comp 3.0 for and mated it to an A543/568 hybrid manual. It was obnoxiously fast, raw, and loud.
