Re: Post Your Work Truck/van Thread


this is where some of my money from jobs goes to... truck payments and gas money...

by the way, the 2008's have the ability to use e85 fuel, but my mpg is about 20% less, so it's a toss up, cheaper to buy, but less mpg

Buy the way, do you all get a few calls from people by just seeing your truck?
I always think it's pretty cool that a total stranger is willing to call you to come bid a job, just by seeing your truck

Your doing well with your MPG if your only 20% less. My 09 F150 gets about 12mpg instead of 20 when i run E85.

Helluvan eye-catcher, - - doesn't surprise me at all you get calls from it. They figure you'll treat their house like you treat your ride . . .

Re: Post Your Work Truck/van Thread


This is our van we have had for around 3 months now, chose the day it was its dirtiest to take pics I know. It is a 2009 VW transporter and we get around 38mpg with it. This is probably the most popular size of van here in Scotland, we have it kitted out ok at the moment to take what we need around the area we work.

Hey Stuart, nice racks! I still haven't taken a picture of mine yet, I'm gonna wash it this week and get a couple pictures I'll e-mail them to you. I have to say I had it loaded up with about 850lbs or so and it didn't even move!

Wow! For a minute there I thought that was a mini-truck & then I realized that your rack is huge. It even makes a big Ford look small. Great job!

I bought 3 rolls (4ft x 6ft) of this %100 rubber flooring (mats) today from Lowes and slapped it on the floor. VERY happy with it! It lays flat all on it's own...no need to fasten it down whatsoever. And the traction is incredible!
looks great nice and organized!

I'm sure we could put one on there.

We would just need some accurate measurements.

That Ford looks really clean. What line of work was it previously used for & what is your line of work?
