ARB Sahara Bumper for ’97-14 E-series
There are not many bumpers to choose from for Ford E-series vans and those that do exist do not fit our requirements for high quality, aesthetics, and toughness. ARB has been in the bumper business for decades and their products are extremely high quality and designed for use in the harshest of conditions. The conundrum is that ARB does not make a bumper for E-series vans. While perusing ARB’s product line, we noticed similarities between the 2008 F-series trucks and the 2008+ E-series vans. The result, with minor modifications…the ARB Sahara bumper for the trucks can be adapted to fit onto the ’97-14 E-series van. Our adapter bracket bolts on to the van frame and then the ARB bumper bolts on to the adapter. The adapter is laser cut from 3/8″ steel then welded and powder coated. The bumper has an optional lighting kit for integrated fog lights and turn signals as well as an integrated winch mount. (Please note the adapters are two pieces now versus one piece).
Cummins/Allison bellhousing and torque converter adapters
When it comes to mating the Allison 1000 transmission to a late model 6.7L Cummins engine there are several ways it can be done. Most of the aftermarket diesel conversion companies have gone the route of machined adapter plates and custom flex plates. Their method of adaptation uses a GM-based Allison 1000 and a Ford starter. The problem with this setup is that the starter placement is just under the turbo, is inaccessible, and prone to overheating. Our approach is different. We retain the stock Cummins bellhousing, the stock flex plate, and the original starter located on the left side of the engine with easy access and no potential overheating issues. Our adapter ring bolts directly to the Cummins bell housing and the Allison (with SAE #3 style bell housing) bolts to the adapter. The torque converter ring provides the appropriate spacing and bolt patterns to mate to the flex plate and the nose cone bushing keeps the torque converter centered in the crankshaft recess. Other companies use a mishmash of different manufacturer parts, while ExpoVans uses custom parts designed specifically for mating a Cummins and Allison transmission.
