Welcome to Ujoint Off Road, where it's all about 4x4 vans! I've been helping people convert their vans for over 10 years, and created this website to make the process even simpler.
Here’s how it started:
I became a van enthusiast at an early age, and dreamed of driving one around the country. Then I saw my first 4x4 van on a trip to NY. That brought it to a whole new level! So I found a beat up, rusted 1978 Ford with a Pathfinder 4x4 conversion. I drove it around a while, then it decided that it didn’t want to run anymore. I proceeded to completely tear it apart. The drive train, every single wire, everything. It took me over 3 years to get it running again, and I can say I learned a few things! Especially what not to do! That van was great, took me all the way to California, where I started working in the off road industry. It didn’t take long before I decided to tear down the van again, upgrading the suspension. I did a few conversions for customers, and started to build the ultimate van in my head. So it was time to upgrade......
I started the Vanaconda build, planning the conversion kit and future upgrades the entire time. It had to be a daily driver, mountain bike shuttle, cross country driver, tow vehicle and camping rig, all in one. After several requests for copies of my kit, I decide to build a limited run in early 2007. The first production run sold out, and I was surprised at the amount of interest the idea generated. So when it was time to build more kits, I decided to start UJOR. I relocated back to NC, and started adding new product with goal of making 4x4 van conversions easier for the DIY van enthusiast. Please check back often for the latest news!!
I prefer to work with every customer one on one, the old fashioned way. So I don't have a web store. Please feel free to call or email me with any questions/suggestions.
We have lots of information throughout the site so take a look! We offer DIY conversion kits if you'd like to take on the project (watch our install videos on the video page) or you can send the van here for us to work our magic on. All of the vans on the UJOR 4x4 Van Builds page have been built here, everything on the Testimonial page was customer installed.

2014 E350 V10 6" lift on 35's
Another ambo is done! This 04 6.0 with super low mileage is one of a kind, more details on the 4x4 builds page.
The flat black 08 E350 5.4 is done, more details on the 4x4 van Builds page.
We've added a new member to the UJ family, V5! This 2011 E350 5.4 was converted by a customer last year and when he offered it for sale I couldn't resist. It already has the full 6" UJOR suspension system, stage 2 front D60 w/RSC upgrade, 4.88 gears, rear ARB air locker and some other goodies that make it super comfortable.
