You're both correct here---win-win huh?
Beginning in '08 the E150 was essentially an E250 with same frame, brakes etc. In order to check this further just look at the drivers door jamb sticker for the GCVW----should be close to 8,600#.
Having bought EB E250 for a work/cargo van it would be hard going back to the standard body now. That extra 20" to the rear is much more beneficial than I would have ever imagined.
