Re: Changes in Ford vans

Try to find mirror take-offs from a Ford van upfitter who converts the vans to ambulances. That way the mirrors are already configured for the vans, and no modification required. Found mine on eBay.

Re: Changes in Ford vans

I have been using MSN auto ratings to figure out what some of the differences are between years. If you type into a search "1994 Ford Econoline msn ratings" it will take you to the pages for that year and from there you can look at the specifications for each year and model, see a short overview of that year and any major changes they made, and search every other year that they have info for.

Re: Changes in Ford vans

So, Can I replace the fenders, hood, grill, headlights, and bumper on my 1996 E250 with parts from a 2008 or later?

Also, I'd like to replace the mirrors with the twin stick style, and from reading above, that's not hard!

I'm a big van fan and I just got a 1996 E250 with a Salem Kroger conversion.

Yes on the front clip. You will also need a new radiator support to complete the conversion.

Extendable tow mirror can be added to older vans by enlarging a couple existing holes, and adding 1-2 more (depending on year).
