2 skids vs 3 skids, how often in van

Yes, moot I have & they are a "blast" yet the 3.7 & 3.5 non turbo seem to have lower cost of ownership, the quickness is not an important factor to me.

I don't see many guys running 2 skid vans these days. I haven't done much expediting since rates dropped off around 2015 or so but I went to a 158 Sprinter around that time.

As a Promaster owner, I've found that the 3 skid capacity my company requires isn't nearly as significant as the increased weight capacity. I get loads over 3000 lbs, and occasionally right at 4,000 lbs. I would likely not change anything if I were an independent.

I hope you are getting at least $1.25/mi for those 3-4000 lbs loads. Too much wear and tear on that vehicle for anything less. JMHO.
