    Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension

When I put it in place, I need to make sure the edge of the tire towards the back bumper goes up into place first by tipping the tire forward as I crank the lift, but after that, it fits great...
  2. Alternate (larger) tires for 2015+ Transit

    Nope. Van computer assumes the OEM tire size and drives the speedo from that. If you change tire size, your speedo WILL be wrong. And, so far, I haven't found any record that anyone has been able to change that through a tune or other means. Your best bet is to either do the head math to...

    Electronics, Audio, and Lighting
    I had the Viper remote start with 2-way key fob and cellular option installed in my 2019 Transit. It's the 3rd vehicle I've had the system installed in. All-in with parts and labor by a local shop for $640. I won't go with factory remote start again if I can help it. Yes, the Viper requires a...
