i dont see why not..
Your's is the first ambulance I have ever seen with that kind of O2 cylinder mount, and I've seen quite a few. Most are mounted against the back compartment wall. I have two Wheeled Coach's, and neither one of them has that type of mount, but then they are the full size units, and not a mini-mod.
Ambulance modules are built using a roll cage configuration, which is self supporting. I believe that post serves one purpose, which is to provide a mounting point for the O2 cylinder, and therefore you could remove it without compromising the integral structure at all.

Of course asking the manufacturer is probably the safest way to make sure it's OK to remove it.
If posible look at the hour meter. Most ambulances sit and idle for long periors of time.Hi All,
Ive read quite a few pages of this thread and am looking at getting a 1992 Ford with a 7.3 diesel (I believe non turbo), with 189k miles. Im curious about what things I should look for when looking at the vehicle other than mechanical things. Or if there are non usual mechanical things to look for.
Thanks. How many hours is a lot? With 189k I'd expect it to be decently high.If posible look at the hour meter. Most ambulances sit and idle for long periors of time.
Look for maintenance records... Some for profit companies focus on making money and minimizing down time... other companies spare no expense.
Frames tend to rust as well as brake lines.
Mine has high hours. I’ve got about 200k miles and I’m now at 17k hours. The up side is that for the first 13k hours as an ambulance it was religiously maintained with no expense spared.Awesome, thanks for the info.
