Great Post... The underside shots were fascinating, notice the tranny "shifting", and the spare tire! On the inside, makes me want to put some extra bolts in my conversion build, who needs all those pots and pans and cabinets coming at you after a nice soft airbag face massage.

MY TROUBLED TRANSIT - 2016 T150, MR, RWB, 3.5EB. Delivered 11/15 with major steering, tire, & alignment defects. Had 6+ front-end and Sub-Frame alignments. 6 defective tires replaced. Also Steering Rack, 2 Axle Seals, Diff Gasket, Rear Brakes and Rotors, PS Pump, Wet Air Filter, Hi stop-light. Crankcase P Sensor failed at 23,500 kms. To Date, 39 days at Ford Service. See "New Van Didn't Get Far"
