It's all your fault, well mostly your fault......

A few months back my 99 F-250 started making an on again off again noise, I decided I needed to get a second rig to act as a backup. Then I found this site, and a few YouTube videos and now I have a 1998 E-350

I am going to work on the floor and layout first. I dont have any plans for 4x4 yet but that may come later. Thanks for all the help so far, and for all the help in the future I am sure to get on this forum you guys are great.

I will post updates here but I also have them on my blog as I go as well.

I agree I think it is a great blank canvas in a lot of ways. It does have rear AC/Heat, I am going to pull off the side panels and see whats going on with it I think the State of Colorado blocked some of the vents off for their use. I will probably reroute the output. The front AC is super cold and the heat is working great so that should all be a bonus.
Since it needs body work i was going to get it repainted a Sage or Spruce Green but the color is growing on me a bit. I actually found a van in a wrecking yard the same color that has the fender and the door that are damaged so I may just swap them out and leave it the same color. The roof and a few spots on the sides need attention but that may be a job for Linex

Yes I am sure that will be the case, but since it is a "work" vehicle at least its all deductible.
