Hello from British Columbia!

Hey Everyone!

I finally brought my van home last week!

It's 2004 E350 Super Duty Chateau 5.4L with a Quigley 4x4 and its my first Van! Excited to start the build out but as of right now the van is at the dealer getting a Redhead Steering Box installed. I was also told it had a bad 02 sensor as my CEL came on, having that resolved and changing out the fluids so I can have a solid base line! Our dog approves of the purchase.

So in the back the previous owner had this storage area built out to carry the spare tire and carry some extra stuff. Probably going to remove this as I'm looking at getting a dual swing bumper built locally, similar to the style of Aluminess. They are just too expensive for my blood with our very poor exchange rate and shipping costs. If I find a used one I will definitely jump on it!

Looking at taking out the rear bench seat right now and adding a high roof. Not sure if its possible to preserve the heating/ac ducts hmmmm....

While it is a novel idea that box with the spare in it is taking up pretty much all of your interior storage space!

A good fabricator, if you can find one and even better if you already know one, can do wonders for you as far as bumpers and spare carrier. Ford vans aren't that challenging to build around. Fairly square and an easy flat 4 bolt flange (frame horn) on every corner, A metal worker's dream.

As far as rerouting/rebuilding your ducts with a top the sky is the limit. Lots of people here have done various things with that, so has SMB. Unfortunately none of the modified ones are as good looking or effective as the OEM ceiling ducts.
