2021 FORD E350 XL service body

No affiliation.

If you thought KDB's build came out nice, imagine a build-out on this service body. $51,411.

BTW, comes stock with an interior door from the cab to the body, a 40 gallon fuel tank, and a 7.3L gas Godzilla engine. Yes, I'm drooling.

That would be rad... wonder what the interior standing height of the box is. Looks like it could be 75"? If so, that would be perfect for those of us that are right around 6' tall.

What do you do with all those hatches?? Seems like a skinny interior unless you remove partitions to get to the outer skin....

Take a look at what KDB did with his exterior cabinets on his build.

KBD added a pop top but I see a nice floor plan without by putting a raised bed across the back like most of the Sprinter builds nowadays. The inside cabinets are already built, in a sense.

I think it would be neat to put cabinet doors inside at least some of the outer hatches and you could access gear from either inside or outside.

I'm also warming to the idea of a bulkhead door like this van has. Yes, it makes for less living space inside but for many the dust control, temperature control and security might outweigh that.

Agree, but the one downside I see if that IMO a setup like this is really only practical for 2 people. There's no way I put a passenger in back unless I relly didn't like them.
