    17’ Transit 2mpg boost

    As always I constantly tinker, with everything ! After MATS I put my airtabs on AND performed a tune up. I used Motorcraft 534 plugs but did a little old school thought I gapped them at .024 instead of .032! The old wives tale was more power smaller gap thinking why not this 16-17 is killing me...

    This wasn’t something I was announcing but we’ve hit some speed bumps and can’t seem to find the proper answers! I’ve lined up some customers in our vicinity and have been TRYING to get setup under our own authority. However all the lawyers and different organizations don’t seem to understand...

    Shout out to my carrier!

    I know this is a bit strange and sometimes frowned upon but I have to say the team at Active Aero has been awesome to me and my wife . Our van's bust and they have been overly helpful! Trying to help us find a replacement or even sign up as drivers with a fleet owner! I know it's in everyone's...

    How long to keep a Sprinter...

    Lately the wife and I keep asking ourselves this question.. Our sprinter has 3/4 a million miles on it and we've done nothing above basic maintenance on it . I'm starting to get weary as I'm starting to see its age lol. I've had no working glow plugs for well over a year and it's starting to...

    Auxiliary lighting

    As our sprinter ages the headlamps are approaching useless! I've sanded them down several times and they cook themselves time and time again... With that in mind instead of the expensive new headlamp assemblies I'm going to add a 52" lightbar across the top and some auxiliary driving lights in...

    How many is too many?

    How many miles "grace" do you give in event of discrepancy? Case in point our carrier goes zip code to zip code, our current load is 48 miles off but they are covered in zip to zip part of our contract.. Having a "fit" this morning I figured out I've given them nearly 1000 miles so far this...

    Sprinter Koni Shock upgrade

    So it took 700k and $300 investment but I finally put Koni's on the back of my 08 sprinter. The difference is WOW! I'm a believer and I wish I would have stopped buying OEM shocks 700k ago! Seriously if I'd known I would have removed the factory ones in the beginning ! I know the sprinter sites...

    Got my paws on the Ford Transit

    So to be blatant I'll open with the end decision on my part: Sprinter better step it up! Now the real deal! Also all units had 2000lbs in them! Cons first ; it's only 3 inches longer then a non extended sprinter so yes to 3 pallets but no to floor level sleeper. The Diesel engine had a...
