    That's funny. Although, I'm bucking for one of those Transits. I'm looking to down-size.

    The rearview camera mounted in the lisense plate bracket gives a much greater view than you could get out the rearview mirror.

    As much as I would like to bash JCI, this is a Ford issue with the Chicken Tax. They replace the glass with steel after it gets into the US to avoid paying extra tax. They also shred the seats and other parts they don't need.

    Every Tech vehicle I have ever drive has had the rear window blocked, after years as an Ambulance driver it was easy to transition into the vehicles but other I guess are used to using rear view mirrors and not sideview mirrors

    Too funny. Wonder what would happen if you called the 1-888-# and said you were concerned they couldn't see out of the back window.

    I hope it doesn't reflect the quality of JCI systems.

    LOL we should all call in and complain....on the same day.

    I would love to see the boss's face when 250 complaints come in on a single van, one day no less.
