h2otraveler: glad to hear you are getting closer to getting your van! I will presumably pick up mine at Dealer tomorrow! One heads up: it can take 8 weeks for Ford to deliver your van from Quigley. Crazy.

Apparently Ford can't track the vehicle once it has re-entered the Ford delivery system with ship-throughs.

I recommend about a week after Quigley supposedly releases it to Ford that you call your Ford sales contact and ask them to make sure it was picked up and put on a rail car. Mine apparently sat for three or four weeks before Ford put it on the train, and only did so after being reminded ... .

best of luck to all of us

Can someone please post a picture of the front hub and suspension? I see that they keep the stock McPherson struts but I want to know how they connect the strut to the hub. Is it a custom hub?

Hi Yelnam - Medium roof vans cannot ship-through via Ford so mine is a private carrier. I hope this makes it quicker. I'll keep you posted.


To anyone on the forum - has anyone made a list of things to check when picking up a new van from the dealer? e.g. air clearer cover is on tight.


Thanks!

It's been a long wait but the van has arrived. Picked it up on Fri. Wheels and tires installed first thing Sat. AM. With 250 miles on the van and new wheels and tires, I'm getting 17.5 mpg. Not too bad and should improve a little. I suspect a little better on the highway as well.

Yeah, second the request for more info on the wheels. Look like a perfect match for Transit.

Awesome! Dig that decal, too. You must feel like a million bucks right now. Make sure you report on how the 4X performs...congrats.

Ordered 10/26

I'd put a TRUMP bumper sticker on it, but I'm quite certain it would be vandalized.

Hi All,
The tires are BF Goodrich Radial All Terrain KO2 - LT245/75-R16
Wheels came from www.wheelbasealloys.com. The wheels are 6.5JX16 ET60. The combination fits great, works great and looks great You should note that wheelbasealloys is in the UK. That's why they have a good selection for our vans. Overall cost for five wheels and shipping was reasonable.


Next up is installing all the Aluminess products that are somewhere between CA and GA but on the way.
