Just bought a new 2001 Ford E350 with a Knapheide LO Pro utility body. I love this truck! It is perfect work truck for our industry. Far better than a regular van yet not much bigger or any different to drive.

'89 Nissan 4x4 "Hardbody" *laugh*

The motor is strong, but the body is falling off. There's a 2-1/2" difference in the pin stripes of the cab and bed... They lined up at one time...

Doesn't burn or leak oil, I only put oil in it during scheduled changes every 3000 to 4000 miles. Goes like a champ in any conditions...

Had an E150 Ford Van with the 300 Cu In Six... I loved it. It met its demise one late night after a gig... Long story...

It never ceases to amaze me at some of the vehicles electricians drive around in.

I worked with a guy once that did all of his jobs out of his early 80's mercedes benz that had seen better days. The car was super reliable but very unsightly. The car was waste high in spent coffee cups and misc. electrical stock. He used to tie extension ladders to the roof when necessary.

The guy was a damn good electrician though.

Ford Econoline 350, 2002 model. Couldn't resist the 0% financing. Had to reitre ole blue, it had 189,000 hard miles on it(1991 Econoline250)


Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

Hixson had a Ford Fairmont, about a '75 model with the rear seat removed for hauling electrical stuff. This was in '96 and '97...

But, there's outfits driving brand new Dodges and I can't figure out how they're doing it...

1996 F150 Work series with the 300 six and 4 speed auto. The engine is good but the transmission is awful. It never knows what gear to be in. Next truck will have a manual.

Anyone else have problems with these transmissions?
