Congrats!  Great looking van!!  I love the SWB models too

 

When (if) you find a decent deal on the upper rear reflectors, let me know  -  I want a set too, but Ford is just CRAZY with their pricing on them . . . . and most vendors want either a core, or they charge you an additional $50 'core charge' . . . . for EACH side!!!

Welcome, love that color.  Great photo, looks like you are not the only one excited about the new van.  Interested in how you like the springs, I have the LWB.  Not unhappy with handling but open to improvements.

I have not gotten springs yet, still waiting for them to come from Germany. they are the Eibachs that they put on the M-Sport vans. there should be 4 more sets when they arrive. you guys could pick them up.

Congratulations finding a 1.6l Ecoboost. Sadly, they are no longer available. Here is a summary of my modifications

I have run out of things to change, so I will be interested in your experience with the Eibach springs.

 

I found my road bike fits perfectly inside. The MTB is longer and barley fits at an angle. I used a Thule rack bolted to a removable plate and it is very convient and efficient.

Welcome to the forum.

 Don you are out of control and I dig it. 

I am going to add some https://www.1up-usa.com/product/van-tray/ to the back just need some time to figure out the mounting. I am planning on turn my MTB bars sideways to clear the inside. 

Interested in the Boostmax for sure!
