    Yes was referring to Skidog's comments earlier in the thread, the book is great read about Henry and Edsel Ford and Detroit of the era.

    Beastiality- I am SOOOOO sorry for the thread drift- maybe you should check out "My own personal 333 skis thread"!

    Check Newbergford.com for 4 x 4 Ford Transits, all Ford parts like Quigley (Raptor Front End). Just got a RWD Transit w 3.5 Eco Boost, not slow!

    My dad was an electrician and every Friday my moms emptied workvan into garage and setup two wooden cribs in the back of van. That's how we rolled to beaches/mountains until conversion van was purchased.

    Bossman finally caved and I am getting our beat to shit 2002 F350 5-spd with liftgate. SCORE! Thing is rusted up pretty good, but runs great and since its a company truck its free/insured/maintained by company mechanic.

    Super extra score: The new 2015 F350 the company just bought is mine in the spring!

    Working your sack off 7 days a week does pay off sometimes!

    Transit always wins over the Nissan in comparison reviews. The Nissan van is only available in fwd, gets truly crappy mpg (14 vs 20+ for turbo gas or diesel transit) despite being slower, etc..and takes fugly to a whole new level.

That is probably about what your Audi gets, plus you have the pickup truck utility that you miss about your F-250.

    Win-Win.
    What configuration has he got?
    28 on the Hwy would be awesome, but everything i read has it closer to 20-22.

    Yeah I've talked to plenty of 2.7 f150 4wd owners since I almost bought one....21 or 22 mpg hwy seems the best real world mpg. Perhaps Harry's friend was thinking of his Subaru?
