Thanks fellas. I actually had a dude ask me if he could rent my limo and how much. I said sure if you have a Ducati. He looked at me funny for a sec and then it hit him laughing.

Wheels are custom powder coated Alcoa's. We call it smoke dark clear at work.

It's a 2017 Ford Transit 350HD wagon (15 passenger) with the 3.5L Ecoboost. You want the passenger wagon because adding seats after the fact is very difficult, but taking them out is very easy. Sync 3 works beautifully so I'd opt for that. Also, you want the HD tow package AND electronic brake controller which is a separate option. Adding them after the fact is next to impossible because the BCM is very picking about what you connect to the electrical system. 3.73 rear end without the LSD. The factory Ford clutch packs in the LSD sucks in my opinion. Going aftermarket torsen is a much wiser investment. The 2020 is getting AWD so I may be holding off on the build and trading it in the near future.

Thanks for the heads up on the 2020 getting AWD. I have a GMC Sierra 2500HD and I have been shopping around for a toy hauler, but am considering trading in the track for a setup like yours. Would you be able to share any pics of the interior?

Some pics

Here are some pics of my new gold magnesium wheels, new light front axle, some custom spacers and my project cabinet to house my compressor and air line. You can see how shiny the the axle is in the pic of the front wheel. Just sparkling inside. You can also see the big weight reduction of the axle and the spacers compared to OEM. One of the photos is of the new ceramic bearings but you cannot see it. Also had to get new longer Proti Ti bolts for the new wheels. Only on the front though.

For those talking about Xpel. You can see the edges of the tankslapper in the pic of the front wheel close up.

Yes it is. I bought it a year or two ago and been meaning to fit it. It is a real pity the company stopped trading. I found out from Gecko that they are no longer in business.
