Join us for a dyno day in Sterling, Virginia.
any tips? The need to haul stuff has expanded. Looking for diesel and extended cargo length, but I know nothing about the e-series in general...
Cargo van or box truck?
new or used?
Though still in business and focusing on international business, DHL shut down a lot of their routes and sold off a lot of their trucks. If you see a yellow truck it is a retired DHL unit.
The red portion is just a removable sticker.
budget is trying to stay below 7, cargo, not box
Try Penske first, then Budget or Ryder.
company I worked for had two.. a gas one that would not die (we tried) and a diesel that had to be driven to be believed
Just picked up an E350 extended van. Incredibly heavy duty, adequate power with the triton V8 and tons of room. They are available cheap and really can't be killed with minimal service. Drove it loaded with gear from socal to Sonoma(for the Vintage races) and back. It returned 15mpg, cruised easily at 75-80 and stable as heck. The example i purchased has 200K on it, not that you'd know it. After a service, new LT tires and a sound system, my crew reported it drove like a new one.
Thats right! You could get the 7.3 turbo diesel in those....hippies be damned.
well i hit Wiki, and it said in 03 that a new 6.0 diesel was released with more power and same efficiency... but since I know nothing, i figured i'd ask
uh. You don't want a 6.0 ford diesel
Well from looking at diesel fords for my own vices, I was only looking at the turbo 7.3 or the 6.4. The 6.0 seemed to have some teething issues and since the 7.3 turbo seemed to be Fords answer to the Cummins in Dodges, the loyalist felt let down. Check some of the ford truck forums and you start to see the "un-love" for the 6.0L. I wouldnt say to stay away from the 6.0 but I would suggest doing your homework.

I got one of those E150s cheap.. Starting to see more and more of them on the road, and we often wave at each other..
i'm thinking overall that age is my enemy more than miles.
also, i'm looking for the option to tow later on.
