Not mine, just something my dad did for a friend. I never wanted a van until now

How many though? And I don't like the idea of putting them on a slant and risking them breaking. If I were to do it, it would be on a Sprinter.

Re: Post Your Work Truck/van Thread


I should have taken a real before picture but I was to embarrassed of the state of my truck to want to show anyone... But stuntcarpenter can back me up on how much of a disaster my truck was. A long over due cleaning happened this weekend. First pic is before I vacuumed it. Now I just have to maintain it.

What's the tow capacity of that van. The new transit with dually has only 5300lbs and the e350 is meant to have way less in single wheel axles. My 7x14 is 6300lbs loaded with tools so I'm guessing your way over your tow capacity.

I've seen a couple setups where they had the drawer but left a slot big enough to allow for 6-10 sheets to stay vertical. I can lay sheets flat but seeing this made me think back to the last time I really hauled drywall and it was a loooong time ago. I'm usually moving ply or cbu.

Rob, you might consider a service body van considering you do remodels. It's an additional expense but the amount of extra tools and gear you need for full service remodels is huge and a service body can fit it all on the shelves and boxes and leaves the whole cargo area free. I'm very happy that I didn't go with a cargo van.

Based on Ethans request.

Man i was sure noticeable with a blue truck and white cap
That was a hell of a first truck. I still think about it from time to time.

Then again with my new truck i can't hide either, just have some additional style points

Im a few days away from a year on that truck and i have 41000 km on it.. Ahh.
I still remember the day i got it. 'check it out dad"

An E-350 diesel is rated 10,000 lbs towing there bud. Heck, my E-250 with a 4.6l v8 is good for 6000 lbs towing. Big difference in design concepts between E-series vans and Transits.
