I like those but my issue is having 2 different axles the e-series rear and the f-series front .
You've got good tastes. I'd buy a set if I had a couple grand to spare... till then I'll keep repainting the steelies I've got.I bought these, but then I'm an old school kind of guy! https://buytruckwheels.com/16x6-hub-piloted-alcoa-8-hole-polished-in-drive.html
Give them a call, I did and the call went directly to a guy who could help me with no hassle at all. Shipping was fast, and they were well packed so no damage upon arrival.
They also carry all the accessories, like lug nuts, center hubs, etc.

I'd have them blasted and powder coated at Les Schwabe for the prices I've seen members getting, but we don't have those prices here. Next summer I hope to touch up the rims one at a time that I previously rushed through to have all six matching.
Thank you! Good advice on the pics allllll along the way. I am already behind on that, but will start as soon as i get a camera (or 'borrow' my son's). I will post pics, but mostly continue to lurk, read and learn. One other member sent me a PM with the link to ambulancerv.com as well. (thank you) It looks like there has not been a lot of activity recently, but there are some old posts that will come in handy. And, yes, Katy!View attachment 440058 katyq02, or is it just Katy?
The best thing you could have done is exactly what you did, and that is read, read, read, before ever buying anything when it come to ambulances. Even though I was a Fire Chief/EMT for 35 years, and worked for EMS on the side for 10 years which gave me a certain familiarity with ambulances, I learned so much more by reading on this forum when it came to converting it to an RV.
The best advice I can give you at this point is to get you a good digital camera and start shooting pictures of everything, including the outside as a whole, then the compartments with doors open, the cab, engine compartment, and then move to the inside. Get pictures of the complete inside and then anything in any of the compartments. And most important of all, get very good close up detailed pictures of anything electrical. What you're doing is creating a 'baseline' to refer back to after you start making modifications or changing things around. These will be very handy when you do your write-up for the before and after shots aslo. You are going to do a build thread, right?
Good luck with it, and let us see some pics of it as soon as you get some!
Not really Ambo specific I don't think, but I have a question. At some point my passenger side front door was allowed to open too hard and caused a little damage to the leading edge and front fender. Should be easy to get a fender and have painted. It looks like when the door opened hard the outside skin of the door has loosened from the frame of the door where the hinges attach. I am assuming it will be easiest to get a door from another van and have painted. So, my question, my van is a 2000 cutaway, can I use a door from a non-cutaway (pretty sure I can) and what year doors will work? 99-14?
Any insight appreciated.
