    What year van is this?

    Sorry for the crappy pics, but itís all I have to work off of. Long story short Iím going to be taking the wheels off my friendís van to get new tires mounted, but itís a surprise so I canít just ask what year it is. Iíve tried googling but canít seem to find a similar front end. Its an hour and a half away from me, otherwise Iíd probably just search the VIN. Itís a Dodge Xplorer camper van, I just want to know what year so I can look up torque specs for the lug nuts.

    Ď74 still had the round headlights. Looks like Ď80 had the right headlights, but the back doesnít look as retro as the camper van?

    With 8 lug wheels, it is a 1 ton. Possibly 8600 GVW.

    I fairly certain the torque specs didn't change much for the B series vans (1971-2003)

    The 8 lug wheels on my 1 ton van torque to 110. He should check.

    Yeah, I found this torque chart...not sure about the whole 5/8Ē stud part, but seems like 100 ft/lb will do it.
