    CrewVanManInfo,
    Thanks for your offer to assist in my Transit search. I might be interested in a NEW transit if the price is right, but I've found a 2018 with less than 5000 miles that meets almost all of my needs for $28K. I'm looking for the following in my purchase: 130" wheelbase, EcoBoost engine, 10-seat passenger set up, Low Roof, Trailer Package (heavy duty). Ideally I'd like this in a color other than white, but white is ok. Also, sliding door is ideal as well but not a deal breaker. You mentioned there were two out there (at Ewald's Hartford Ford in Hartford, WI VIN JKA92046 or Visalia Ford in Visalia, CA VIN JKB55054). Wondering how I can see these vehicles on-line? Also are you a dealer yourself?

    Thanks,
    Erik

    I thought I replied to this message the other day when I saw it. apparently it did not go through because I have not made enough posts yet to send PM's so I will respond here..

    I would be ok with either. If I could save a few $$$ with a used set that would be great. in regards to the black center caps for my van.

    Thanks

    So you don't need a second seat? No big deal as you got the longer seat that goes all the way across and each seat is a little bigger than on the 54" seat. Most of the 62" seats I have seen do not have the recline feature so if you got one of those seats you found a REAL DEAL!

    Hey Ed,

    Yes, I ended up getting one of the wide (62"?) reclining 3-passenger seats locally and got it all installed this past weekend so I am all set for the trip this coming weekend!

    Thanks for keeping me in mind!

    Hey Ed,

    Thanks for the quick reply! They weren't kidding when they said CrewVanMan was all over the place!

    Christmas time is a bit hectic, I leave for Michigan on the 14th, will be back in STL on the 19th or 20th, and leave again for Florida on the 20th or 21st.

    On the way back from Michigan and down to Florida I will have a third passenger. So I don't think the timing will quite work out unfortunately!

    Not to mention I will want to have the seat in-place to make sure the L-Track is lined up just right. Nothing like having incorrect measurements and having to fabricobble or bend stuff to get it to fit...

    The offer is still mighty tempting. I will let you know (with plenty of notice) if I am still in the market for them in a couple weeks time, and maybe I can just wrap the third passenger in an air mattress like a burrito and strap them in like cargo for the trip down from Michigan ;)

    Nothing from the SEMA Show about the 2020 Transit. From my connection through the Ford Transit Brand Group, I may some indication of things to come on the 2020 model in March and the 2020 Ford Transit Order Guide is expected to be released in May, 2019 so will know FOR SURE what will be on that model.

    Greetings CrewVanMan. I responded to a thread about a set of 4 wheels for sale. I can't find the thread but believe it was started by you. If so, do you still have the wheels and are they rated for a T-350.

    Hi-
    Do you work at Matt Ford in Buckner?

    I just recently found this Transit Van group and have been reading over some of the topics. I'm in the market to "order" a new Transit. I've been following the development of the van for four years!

    I currently have a 2006 E-250 (509,xxx miles) and use it for my "semi-retirement" gig as an "expediter".. or driving "hot shot" loads around the country. The E-250 has been a good van, but getting a little long in the tooth.

    I've been following online discussions about the 3.5L Ecoboost and talk with guys that I run into at truck stops. The consensus is that it can get upwards of 20mpg at speed limits on the highway... which would save me HUGE, considering that I drive 60k-80k/year.

    I'd very much like to communicate further if you work at Matt Ford. I travel all over the country and want to order the van from a dealer that can save me some $$ over typical invoice pricing.

    Please drop me a line when you get a chance..
    Thnx much
    -Jerry

    Hey - Saw your post from May 17 about a 2 person pewter seat. I'm looking for that, as long as it's the version with the armrest. I'm in CO - would consider paying for freight or coming to fetch it, depending on location.

    I think I am going to wait till the 2020 models come out before I order what I want...the hybird intrigues me.. if it comes... You sent me some links of new vans with double doors, do you also have the ability to find used double doors at ford dealers? I've done the typical autotrader search and I can't find any or none are coming up on my search... One just came in at my local dealer....I made contact and waiting to hear back.... It just came in yesterday so they don't know too much yet...
    That VIN# is 1FTYE2DM5HKB06750. Not particular on color as this will be an temp can for a few years... I just wanted something with more options....then a base model...Any advice on where else to search would be appreciated...

    Hi,

    I tried to email you per an address that Jimmy over at MattFord gave me but it got bounced as undeliverable. Can you PM me with a good email...I don't have enough posts to PM you.

    Thanks
