I am in need of a truck for work. I had been looking at a diesel pick up but in Chicago they have a stupid law where you cant park "business" trucks on residential streets and I have no garage. In Illinois, pickups are classified as "B trucks" and fall into that category (plus my city sticker would be close to $175 a year). Since I will need this truck for hauling landscape materials, Im looking at a larger cargo van instead. I found a number of 93-02 diesel Ford vans in the $5-10k range in my area. What I want to know is are these vans as powerful as the pickups? I know there are a few differences in the vans vs. the trucks but I basically know nothing about diesel Fords. Do they have tuners available for the vans as well?
