    Even in a well maintained vehicle, drivers are not being fairly compensated for risking their lives every day with what ISPs can afford to pay. Fedex should be paying for several million $$$$ life and injury insurance policies on any driver delivering a package they want delivered.

    Does anybody know the name of the kid who owned the skate board Ford stole and stuck that cargo body on it? On where I live a unit such as that wouldn't last a year.

    The yellow hand rail makes it tough....

    They already pretty much make these. They are just with an e-350 chassis or a sprinter with a box on it. I will admit the tires look pretty tiny though.

    As far as I can tell they only make them as large as 700's where the cutaways go up to 1000's. I had a gmc 1000 cutaway. Was nice to deliver in, better if you were under 6' tall

    GT, i already knew that this company, utilimaster, made some with both cutaways and stepvan bodies... but that thing on a "transit" chassis will probably break down even faster than the light truck chassis of the e350~ e450

    Those handrails are pretty much standard now with this company... but that door handle extension on the passenger side (see youtube) looks like stuff can get snagged on it
