I've gotten mine up to a bit over 60 in 3rd, but I'm not sure the exact speed. I think the fastest I've had my truck was around 95 or so in 2H (and it was terrifying). It felt like it had a little...

Yep. Took 1 tank to get there and another to get back. The majority of the drive was at 70-80mph, so my average MPG was about 13.

16x10 wheels with 305/70/R16 tires. I have no idea on the backspacing and whatnot, I bought them years ago. I don't think any amount of spacing would solve the rubbing, just move it around so it's...

Thanks man. I love my E350, it's a fantastic car. Plenty of power, comfort like I've never experienced before, and I can fit a (still in the box) ProLiant ML350 tower server in the trunk either...

I had AAMCO replace mine. The remanufactured trans was around $800 and I think labor was about the same. I must have lost the records from that. I know it was done in 2012 but I can't find the...

It was a lease before I got it (which is probably why the mileage was so low), so the service was mandatory and part of her lease payments. I've got records of all of that at least.

+1 on the HF 25" breaker bar. I'll add to that to go by Lowes/Home Depot and pick up a 4' piece of 1.5" ID iron pipe to act as additional leverage. I used that combo to remove the crank pulley...

Used car risks / women drivers

The E350 had some weird stuff going on with the steering/braking for a while and both front tires were slowly losing air. I'd taken it to numerous shops and spent hundreds of dollars replacing TPMS...

33s are going to rub. Mine rub on the fenders just a tiny bit but the worst part is the steering idler arm. At full lock mine rubs on that hard enough to actually use it as a parking brake.
