I sent a request to Matt Ford and Josh was really great about getting back quickly and being very precise about the details of the order. The pricing was excellent, but I was just a little to far away to work it out. I wish I lived closer as the Matt Ford guys were the best service before sale of anyone I spoke with.

Did you go with a T-150 or a T-250? In the E-series the 150/250 difference was significant, but it doesn't seem so in the T-series.

If you make plans ahead of time using the dealer ETA +7. you can get a cheap flight to KC, get the GREAT BBQ food that Matt Ford offers, and get some good break-in miles on your Transit.

If you are adding any permanent additions to your Transit, go with the heavier T-250 model. Overloading the T-150 flattens out the springs and makes a stiffer and sometimes unsafe ride. Always look at what weight will be added and then go with the weight capacity that goes with the model application.

Email Josh josh @ mattford . com. They should be able to view the build sheet as long as its a common file type. I just copied mine from the ford website and sent it to Josh.
