I don't disagree with any of what you said, and I also wouldn't be comfortable with .4"!

I'm a big Transit Connect = Ranger guy. I don't think it's an accident that the payload of the SWB TC is identical to the Ranger. The LWB even beats it be a few hundred LBS. It's a more...

The van fits 4x8. The wagon is 45" across inside the rear door. If you plan to move plywood fairly often build a tiny rack. If you do 48^2/44^2 you get less than 2 inch riser needed. (48" plywood,...
