Continuing with my "I'm so cheap" theme of posts...
My 2000 Ford E350 with 5.4 V8.
I'm grossing 16,500 fully loaded with this trailer.
It's tuned and has a Magnaflow exhaust.
It's super slow.
It has the same tranny, brakes and running gear as the 7.3 diesels, so even though it's slow it handles a load!
I've had over 5,000 lbs of scrap stainless in it.
I can seat 15.
I can haul two quads inside it and a week's gear and still seat 5.
I paid cash for it, got rear ended two years later and got paid more to fix it than I paid for it. I took a hammer to it and replaced the bumper. Back on the road for $125.
It's been to Washington, California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and Idaho.
It has 225,000 miles and uses 1 quart of oil every 5,000 miles.
The entire drivetrain is original.
My kids named it the"Party Bus"
I want a truck, but this old van is so practical that I just can't justify replacing the old girl.
