Duramax-powered GM passenger van. Michelin or Bridegestone tires.

Tandem axle trailer with roof no higher than vans roof (the UHaul 6x12 is ideal). Dexter Torflex axles and TUSON antilock disc brakes. Their controller and trailer mount electronic anti sway

This would be my ideal. At 62-64/mph.

As long as they can exchange something for crack, even though neither them or the drug dealers know the commercial value of something that had been stolen and simply get it for the scrap value, they go for anything that seems easy enough.

I have a 2017 full size chevy van with the 2.8 duramax and run between 31 and 33 on the highway with about 2500 lbs of payload. City running is about 19 to 20 with the same payload. A little aero work would probably do wonders.... GM Has done nothing with these vans other than a small air dam.
