Hello

I finally got a van! It's a 2011 E350 & completely stock at the moment. I've liked vans since I was a kid, but for some reason never bought one. I used to want a hotrod van, jacked up in the rear with wide M/T's, a nasty V8 with headers & glass packs. Now… I have a family of 6 & am extatic to have this 12 passenger van & make it our camping/traveling rig.
So I'm here looking for info & ideas. So far, all I've done is remove the rear seat so we have a fair amount of cargo space. I have a lot of ideas I'll be working on slowly as time & money allow & I'd ultimately like to convert to 4wd.

Thanks!

Pic for testing…
Nothing special to look at, just a stocker, but I guess I should have a "before" pic.

Hey, I've noted several times now that *any pictures taken with an iPhone* and then uploaded can end up sideways/upside-down like that. Even if you've "correctly oriented them" on your iPhone first.

Somehow the iPhone image data still tells whatever webpage that receives them to orient the picture the way it was *originally* photographed.

How I've fixed that:
I downloaded the free version of the "PS Express" App (produced by Adobe, the guys who make Photoshop) and then opened up each of those problem images on my iPhone with that app....then I re-oriented them properly....and then I saved them back to the iPhone image directory as a new copy of the image.

These new copies of the image that were produced from the "PS Express" App (after that open/re-oreint correctly/save new copy process) have not had the upside-down/sideways problem any more.
