2017 Transit Build by MG

And so it begins... The Transit has landed. Not a lot can happen to this until the Cummins van is finished but we have some big plans for this rig.

The deets:
-2017 Transit XL Medium Roof Passenger van
-3.5L Ecoboost V6
-3.31:1 non-limited slip rear (soon to be upgraded to something more awesome with an ARB locker or Truetrac and 3.73s or 4.10s...)
-Electronic gadgets all over the place. Loaded with almost every option.





Not even a day old and already being put to use chasing parts...

He needs something to fill in that 80-100 hours per week he's putting in on the Econo-Cummins. Once that's done he won't know what to do with himself.

Um... I have multiple van builds coming. I need an extra 80-100 hours per week already!!

I think you guys would laugh if you knew about all of the projects that I'm juggling.

The coolest ones I can't talk about... The rest are various applications of Sienna seat mounts. (no matter how hard I try, I can't get away from those dang Sienna seats....)

4x4 for sure! As much as I'd love to have the front of a Raptor stuffed under the van, it's not looking possible. I'll have the CAD models of the Transit soon though and we'll see what can happen.

I hope so! I think the Transit is a great platform for many types of users! I think we'll be doing a pop-top of some variation on this. Gotta get my E-series done first.
