    I was one of the test pilots for the new Transit for a year. I could walk in it. It was the best vehicle I ever worked in. Good for a country UA tech like me, sucks for a guy in Chicago who has to go in garages!

    Ive seen a few hvac companies here go to the Transit style truck. I see getting the ladders off the top being a big issue especially with how high it is

    Ive had 5 econos since 1999 and put over 200,000 miles on every one of them with very little maintenance and never had any major repairs. Hopefully Ford is making the transit style with the same durability.

    The company just got me a 2012 E250 in march. Once they start with the Transits, I think I may be a little jealous if they order the taller versions. I hate crawling around back there.

    But that van rides and drives like a Cadillac. I really enjoy driving it. Power everything, Cruise Control, MP3 and CD Radio, and speakers in the back doors lol.
    Gotta have the right tool for the job!

    Where is all the stuff MADE IN THE USA?
