That's what you get for trying to be on the bleeding edge of work van technology.

That really is a head-scratcher, though. As big as that thing is, why would rear heat NOT be standard?

Well....if they are selling them in California or Florida, it's probably not needed...they offer prewires as well, probably for upfitters.
There are a pile of options available
I just got order confirmation.

It seems that since I got my order in before actual production took place, there has been a hiccup....like no rear heat.

When I ordered the van, I knew that some things were "late availability"..which wasn't going to be a big deal...one of the combo's ordered was the polypropylene sidewalls in the back and spray in bedliner on the floor.

It seems that sometime in November, things got changed.....first, you could only get the spray in liner if you ordered a white van...meh, no big deal...but, if you ordered the wall protection you could not get the rear heat/air....as well as the bedliner....fawking Ford....

Of course, they don't tell the dealer.

So....no rear AC isn't the end of the world...no rear heat...ermm...yeah, dealbreaker.

Salesman offered 2 options...an aftermarket system...which I said no way...and he offered at his expense to order the appropriate Ford pieces to complete the system...ready for this?....his cost...7k...on the option sheet, $800.

This dealer has been great over the years and as much as I appreciated him offering that, I just can't stick it to them over a bad rollout by Ford Corporate.

Sooooo....new van ordered....12 weeks...I hope.

Thats really surprising Duncan - given that Transit vans have been kicking around since the 1960's in Europe i would have thought rear heat would have been mandatory in the northern areas and would have translated straight over to you guys.

Yes, but this one has the rear heat...after the load protection package and vinyl floor was removed.

Lol...and not really...just like anything else, now if you do a build and price it won't let you...I suppose I should have waited until full production was ready.

I don't and I've been ordering factory vehicles since 1997...some things have never been available with other things.
