    Get ready to fill that baby up with about $100 worth of gas, which should last about 3 days or so.
    Nice work truck though, enjoy.

    What's the gas milage on that thing? Engine size, etc.
    Reason being, I am in the market for 2 more service vehicles.
    Torn between the traditional van, pick up, or something else.
    BTW: I like the looks of it.

    It has a 5.4 engine I have no idea what the mileage is but I reset the trip when I filled it up so I will post the mileage later
    It did cost $42for 1/2 tank the dealer paid for when I picked it up

    For me it was a no brainer because the cargo van I have was always trashed so this will force me to be a little more organized

    The only thing I have to search a little for is a ladder rack that fits it


    that body is also longer then it looks in that picture
    i think it is 11' inside the box

    there is a lever on each side that locks all the boxes on the sides i will post more pics later

    i think i am going to love this truck

    ARPA,

    I switched to Chey 3500 single rear wheel cutaways with a 12' Spartan Box. 10 MPG, the Ford E-350 standard vans with the 5.4 get about 8 or 9 mpg.

    My guys love them, you can carry a considerable amount of parts, motors etc and still be extremely organized.

    Those are nice trucks, there are a ton of them running around my area.

    As for a Ladder rack, try These Guys ask for Arnie, he has always taken care of me in a big way when it comes to trucks and ladder racks.

    James will love you. It has a blue oval on the grille! That is a nice service rig though. But you got to do something with those wheels!

    My 97 f-150 ext cab 4x4 with the 5.4 gets 12 mpg all day long, 16 on the highway. Depends how much weight you're adding. I'm a fan of the 5.4. Good motor. We stuck a trailer behind my friends f-150 with the 300 six(bullet-proof motor), but the mileage dropped to 9-10, and couldn't maintain highway speeds without staying in 4th gear.Trailer about 2500lbs.


    Nice service vehicle. Ebay???
