    2020 Ford Transit AWD

    Might be quicker for you to first point out when anyone has said it was binding? _____ I’m looking forward to hearing about the VanCompass kit works out for folks in practice AND equally excited for the UJoint kit too. If UJoint can deliver on not loosing down travel that will be rad

    This reads a bit confusing and I want to clarify.... Y’all have first hand experience putting an F150 locker in 2020 Transit and then testing the AWD system? Could you go into a bit more detail on how the AWD system behaves with it locked & unlocked?

    I agree! Through the grapevine I heard the UJoint lift kit will be 3” lift and not loose any down travel. Glad to have all these options and the Transit to get aftermarket love like the Sprinter so comprehensively has

    Ah, ok, I just realized that isn’t a AWD van in the still frame but y'all used it the video for the AWD lift? Are 285/75 and 265/75 tire sizes y’all have tested with this new 2” AWD lift?

    What size and brand of tires are you running on your van from the Youtube video still frame for the 2” lift? Any trimming necessary? Rubbing?

    Haha! I can’t agree with your take on leaving it stock being proper but now we know how you feel ;) But yeah for $1000 it’s sounding like a good jam if you wanna run that next tire size up, 245/75, which I for sure do!

    The Tacoma diff drop was simply an example of what happens long term to a vehicle when you keep less than ideal CV angle So what y’all found is if you want to run a 245/75 ~30.5” tire then stock CV angle looks dialed? The stock Transit tires are 28”. But if you’re wanting to go 33” then high...

    Yes, but that bad CV angle could extrapolate issues is what I was after. Why risk it in a 50k van? We know what happens to Tacoma’s Personally I’m waiting for what UJoint is offering before making a choice. But I am totally pumped to hear how this VanCompass kit plays out long term for folks

    First off I'm glad ya'll are around and make stuff for the Transits! And I'm totally down for being being wrong BUT it seems really wild to me to NOT invest in the best lift kit on a brand new $50,0000 van....feels like the wrong place and time to save money. I believe that sentiment is...

    No need to call, you can see in the video it looks like an extreme end of its angle It's not wrong but will just be curious over time they wear more quickly because of it

    Question I would have about the Van Compass kit: Are the CV's gonna wear out every 20k miles now? For instance, you don’t have to do a diff drop when you lift a Tacoma, but it sure makes the inner cv joints last longer if you do

    VanCompass has some updates on their AWD lift: Sounds like they are doing a new 1" coil lift spring + 3/4" strut spacer with built in camber correction. No custom CV's needed with their approach. $1000 for their kit WITH Bilesten B6 struts They also are gonna have two coil spring rates

    Any updates from quarantine? Did those custom CV’s make an appearance?
