I have my doubts that this is free. Coming from an owner/property developer standpoint, property isn't free. Coming from an employer standpoint I wouldn't want a bunch of DIY'rs bothering my crew all day without compensation. Maybe this is a business driver for them, project comes in, flops...
I have a "cut down" 2006 E350 OEM tank for sale.
This was shortened using the ujoint kit by a local shop.
Local sale would be preferred, cost of freight shipping might make it not worth it.
Comes with extra straps, and fuel pump hanger assembly with an assumed bad fuel pump.
Does $250 seem fair...
That is something I forgot to add, I think I would still do it all over again.
You cant get this capacity tank anywhere else for this cost.
It would just be nice to know all of these nuances ahead of time.
Here is a pic showing how low it hangs, I guess it is a little lower than the t-case.
Also, a concern with the cut down tank, rusting from the inside, and "delaminating" which I hear happens to older e-series tanks.
After 5 years my OEM tank welds are clean as a whistle on the inside.
I'M BATVAN has never ending wants and needs....
I keep thinking about the motto "Do it nice or do it twice"...well I have done a couple things a couple times now.
One of the things that sometimes bothered me was the cut down fuel tank, at 28 gallons its a bit small for the thirsty V10. Other...
Seems that folks are hungry for build threads so I thought I would at least bump mine to the top.
Here are some pics after Raptor liner of the lower rockers.
Learning a lot still about using these types of finishes and spraying them.
I purchased a upol "tintable" 4L kit...
There is more threads on this forum section alone on converting e series chassis to 4x4 than all of the internet.
Maybe do some research? There are recipes (and parts) for doing this.
The truck suspension connection points don't blend very well with the van chassis. That is if I'm interpreting...
I should have mentioned, I have Atlas springs front and rear. The fronts took 5 weeks to receive, I feel they are to stiff (that said,I came from a Tundra).
The rears were second hand from another member, they were to low for his (Atlas sent him new ones) but perfect for mine.
I would find a competent local spring shop. I really don't see how leaf springs can be built through mailorder.
The result I have seen is the prices have doubled so they can cover the screw ups. Springs going for $600-$1200 plus freight shipping that costs $350-$400 locally.
Atlas can probably...
