Building Our New Emergency Response Truck

Recommended Posts

We had to replace our service truck so we decided to start with a "clean slate". I wanted something to use for our road service, our accident clean up response as well as traffic control to deal with people that don't move over. We thought about a couple of directions and decided on this route...

2018 Ford Transit 250 Van. 1st order is to tint it down a little...lot of glass...

Then we sent it out to have a Interior Shelf unit & divider panel installed...

Went with a composite divider to keep noise & fumes out.

Not sure why the picture size has been limited that I can only get these loaded so I'll continue on another post....

Yea I want to put more pics in to show the set up. It's getting a Start-All/Compressor system and a flip up LED message board for traffic control on the roof. It should be pretty nice when done....

Drawer assortments filled with hardware, fittings & misc. small parts. We added a collapsible latter & made a rack system for the hand tools...

We have a power inverter to install & the chargers for the Milwaukee tools that are going in the locked cabinet in an organizer.

We are making a seperate battery box & circuit protection system for the rear of the van to keep all of the lighting & power center separate from the chassis. I'll update when we get a little more done...

Looks real nice Ed. A local shop has one of those as a service van for doing road work and trans went out. Large Ford dealer had it a month so far, trans is on backorder. Did you look under it? You need to drop the engine and trans and subframe out the bottom as a unit. Can't just remove the trans. Hopefully you have better luck!!
