    Re: Ordered a new Pickup Truck


    Well, since it's now a "truck," not "pickup truck" thread.....

    My carefully speced Transit T250 RWB Medium Roof with tow package, towing equipment, GPS, and EcoBoost got sold with the company, after I spent a weekend lining it with Mylar covered flame retardant 2" sound and temp insulating foam. 6' headroom, got 18+ mpg, and towed my WRX on a trailer like it wasn't even there. Third van, never owned a pickup though I rent one occasionally to see what they're like. It was supposed to be my track day machine: denied.

    Also looked at Sprinter, which are diesel only (and now come with a 4cyl turbodiesel standard, the 6 is extra cost). Similarly configured it's about the same as a diesel transit: roughly $44K. Most Transit buyers buy the 3.7L V6, the EcoBoost is a smaller percentage, and the 3.2L 5cyl diesels.

    GM still hasn't brought over a high roof van, and the Ram (AKA Fiat Ducato) is FWD.


    The Transit is by far #1 in sales, but the Express/Savana is still #2. The small vans are down, but the Mercedes Metris is selling pretty well as about the only "midsized" van in the US market, and would be a cool trackbike hauler. Standard inside height is 5'6.

    Wow, awesome photo. Ice fishing?

    What's the deal with the offset license plate? Trying to feed more air into the intercooler?

    Ice fishing is boring as fucking hell!!! I was blasting sideways in baja mode!

    and yes, the plate is offset so the intercooler is exposed

    haha. Hope that lake is frozen thick enough!

    Still like the 5 star tune? MPT is getting rave reviews. 75 hp / 110 ft-lbs without even an intercooler upgrade. Nuts.

    Cooked through the first set of tires in 27k miles.

    Just put on a set of 35x12.5-17 goodyears and gave them a break in at a local offroad park...

    Dude, you should really just stop hauling groceries and get that truck out there and do what it is meant to do. Latte toting garage queen....

    I was clearing 25' horizontally (measured by paces, not a tape), but I don't think I was getting that high vertically. I need to check out the go-pro footage....




    didn't spill the milk or break any eggs

    I just turned over 33k miles including 10k towing and ordered a new set of tires too. The stock ones have a bit more life but too loud.

    I went with the KO2s again as I was real happy with them.

    Cool that you are putting the truck to good use man!! thats a great photo.

    Mine got CRAZY loud at the end!!!

    I really wanted an alignment after I went from 1.5" level to 2.25", and they wouldn't do it till I got new tires.
