Smile New to Forum

I'm going to try this again!
Hi My name is Pete and I have my own Security Business.
I had a 2005 Express van and was very happy with it, until I found out my frame was rusted out.
I left it at my service station to have Shocks put on and they called me and said there was nothing to attach to!
There was no rust on any of the body just the frame.
So thats why i'm on your Forum, to talk to you guys about the City Express.
And as I said in another thread, I wish they offered it in an All Wheel drive version.
Cause we get a lot of Snow in this area.
How does it handle on snow packed roads.
Look forward to talking to you, Pete

Both this and the NV200 forum have really low participation

I had my NV200 out in the snow over the weekend here on the east coast, we had a LOT of snow <g>.

The van handles fine on snow packed roads, no complaints. The one thing to know is on Saturday morning I backed out of my drive into the culdesac which was covered in about 7 or 8" of heavy snow that had fallen since it was plowed @ 8pm the previous night. The van would not move at all, after a minute or two I realized the problem, modern electronics.

For moving in heavy snow select traction control OFF, just press the button and the yellow warning light on the dash telling you it is off will go on. Once I did that I got going just fine and went barreling down the 1/4 mile of road covered in 7" of snow no problem till I hit the plowed section. Once you are moving and on a plowed road it is OK to turn the TC back on. But at intersections where you are stopped in looser or heavier snow probably best to turn TC off again to pull out.

What trade are you in that you're going to outfit it for?

Looking forward to seeing your shelving system complete.

Still waiting for two 32" Shelves for back end, already outfitted it on side doors with Dewalt t-Stak units and metal Bins so I can just walk up to it to get most of my items and tools. I own a Security Install Co. Thanks for Asking! will send Pics when done. take care, Pete

Nice setup. Sorry, completely missed the mention of your industry in the original post.

Interested in finally seeing your setup, even the various tools and thing you use on the job if that's possible.
