    OK, I know what you're thinking. Why?? Well, why not? We do a lot of fabrication work and this was one we couldn't pass up.

    Why not put a plow on it, its got 4 wheel drive under it. The only bad thing about it is the lack of visability when backing up. Just go straight or go in circles. LOL :)

    The conversion is a Quigley. Very Impressive conversion. According to the owner it has a 4500lb. axle rating. He'll be posting soon. I just turned him onto this site.

    I have seen that before but on a Chevy Astro commerical workvan. The guy who does my sprinklers has a 7.5' Meyer plow on his Chevy Astro. This guy is sick when it comes to fabricating trucks. He also has a Buyers tailgate salter on it. A buddy of mine also has several Ford E-550 trucks with 3-way dump bodies and 9' Meyers plows on them. However I don;t think he'd let me post pics of them for security reasons. Oh well, nice looking setup anyways.

    Patriot, where in CT are you? I noticed your previous post with the Freightliner. I have an '05 M2, single axle, 33k that I would like to put a blade on. Likely a 10'-12' blade for roads. Any suggestions, ideas?...I obviously need something that's going to hold up.

    Lots of room for the sidewalk crew in there. Maybe even room for a nap on those long nights.

    Hey Eyesell check it out....
    I don't have many (if any) options to choose from ,for my set of wheels ,and this thing works better than I would have hoped.!!!! Some guys I know, that have plowed for years, were surprised at the good job it did.The looks I get are priceless....I even had a plower stop to see what I was using....he couldn't believe a van was pushin' snow......
    As far as the van, it has plenty of torque and came with a tranny cooler and posi rear ...so the AWD rocks with this rig.
    Pushing snow has NOT been a problem......

    I think Quigley is the only conversion place that Ford will uphold the warranty on the vehicle for. They have been doing it for awhile. I believe they do all the Fedex, etc. 4x4 vans. Not cheap though. Something like 7-8k for a conversion.

    you could always add a back up camera like they have in RV's

    Visibility

    Actually the visibility was no worse than a truck with a spreader in the bed. Actually it was a bit better.

    So how well does the E-350 plow? I have never seen that before, but why not? Seems like it would do as well as a pickup

    You can order them from the factory with four wheel drive, iv seen the power companies with these 4x4s and iv seen them in the truck trader. I have E-350 power stroke but no 4x4 :(
