Re: Fire Bus

If I could advise one thing....go with a school bus, not a transit or coach. Parts are harder to find, more expensive and you really wont like working on it. That wouldnt be a hwy vehicle either, unless it was specially built. Transits didnt go much over 55.

Re: Fire Bus

A Transit is not a highway coach and, typically, not built for highway speeds. Most folks replace the rear end for highway speeds if they haven't been replaced already. They are also often built lower to the ground and are made for paved roads. I believe that you can lift them up an inch or so with air bags. Parts & repairs are comparable to highway coaches.
