Ford Transit 4x4s on the lot.

Looks like Newberg has about 5 of these on their lot right now. Prices on a couple of them were just under $50,000.

How much for the plastic surgery to make it look like an Econoline?

It's no Promaster but it ain't pretty. Red isn't its best color.

Didn't regret my decision on the E series over Transit. Look does matter.

Re: Ford Transit 4x4s on the lot.

Does anyone know who does that 4x4 conversion and does it have a low range?

It may be 4x4 but it just doesn't appear to be an actual off road vehicle. Kind of like the all wheel drive SUVs that do better on snow and some mild rough roads.

There is a lot to be said for a larger hood and better access to the mechanical bits. It's a trade-off I'll make sooner or later, not sure if it'll be a sprinter, transit or something else. The ability to reasonably lift and put bigger tires on it will drive much of my decision.

It's certainly a unibody, but it does probably have modern traction control, which goes a very long way in keeping a vehicle moving along the path you want it it. Not sliding into ruts regularly means a lot less clearance and articulation is required. It can also mean that lifting a single tire without lockers is actually not an issue.

I'm very curious if lifts will become available for it or the 4x4 sprinter. I think I can live with a unibody, I actually want modern traction control, but I do feel like I need at least a 33" tire, though independent suspension probably means I don't even need quite that big a tire.

Yes, I'll miss the monster aspect of my van, but I'll gain a lot of safety and hopefully real world performance, even on trails. -- That said, I don't think these vans are there just yet.
