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.

I’ve done every other truck to some degree and never looked back. This new one, I so badly want to at least do a full delete on but I have a 150k warranty on it. It has 4500 miles on it right now.

141,000 more miles and counting my friend.
Think I’ll just put that money into the Z06. She needs a pulley. And exhaust. And a cam. And a fuel pump upgrade. And a oil cooler relocate. And a tune.

And I might need counseling

Looks like about $3k for all the stuff to do the delete. I have to do my best to refrain. Just spent $1300 on exhaust and cats for the car. Wife doesn’t know yet so I’m dead in a few days when it shows up.

Loving my 2017 F-350. I'll be heading to Moab this weekend with it, pulling my toy hauler with my Ranger inside. Ford has put together a very nice truck.

I think the E is enthusiasts

Correct. It's been a very good site for me to learn about my truck. The RV/towing forums have been outstanding. I learn more there than on the dedicated RV forums.
