    2016 Earthcruiser / Perfect vehicle to LIVE OFF THE GRID! Get lost in the great outdoors and STAY LOST for months!

    There isn’t a sweeping size limitation, each site is unique, range is between 20-40’ or so But 24’ is prob a fine sweet spot. Short enough for most of ‘em and Pacific Coast Highway and such Also why am I replying on a post for a 200k rig?! 🙃

    I’m just asking y’all to show your work I’m always down to be wrong! But Ive cited my source, you can google them and even visit their shop in person. Their fleet is 2010-2014 with over 150k each I wonder if that’s a connection? Maybe the factory pcv system can handle a newer engine, but once...

    Would you be able to cite a source / post pictures / Ford diagram images for this? Im not suggesting y’all are incorrect but always curious for data My friend runs a shop in Denver, Baker Garage, and they have a fleet account for a group of F150’s with the 3.5L EB and their experience is...

    The Ford 3.5L EB has a factory catch can?

    You’re right, I was thinking of the 2020 na 3.5 engine option. But even turns out that is port & direct injection But anyhow, carbon build up really isn’t a reason to take an engine on a journey. It’s a well proven burner

    IMHO there’s no universal engine for travel. Anytime you have a problem it’s problem solving production time. I’ve been all through Mexico and beyond with a Toyota 2F, Chevy 5.3L, and Ford 7.3

    That’s a lot to unpack and I can’t comment on it all but it does look like the catch can system I linked to simply improve the PVC system, by not allowing the unwanted oil to return to the top, but still function as intended.

    I’ve never owned a direct injection vehicle but it sounds like carbon build up becomes a issue with em, since fuel doesn’t get sprayed onto the valves, which in the past is what kept them clean Sounds like the first thing a 3.5L ecoboost deserves is a catch can The Ford Raptor has some plug...

    Every Sprinter 4x4 I saw for sale on lots when I was looking in December 2019 was 62-65k. That’s 15k more (compared to $62k sprinter) than the well optioned 3.5L ecoboost, AWD, high roof I ordered. Included the bigger fuel tank, swivel seats, towing, electronic packages, etc etc. Edit...

    It’s interesting to see more clearly now that it might still be cheaper and a better path to get the 2WD van and go with the Quigley system @ $15,000. Unless that price on the Quigley website doesn’t include labor? There isn’t a ton of detail on what’s included If you want to run 33” tires that...
