I heard from one of the Rural Metro EMT's they were getting these. Thanks for the photo.

To save on costs, don't the boxes get re-used? (As opposed to buying a whole new ambulance)

Actually, they're already moving away from the Fords. According to a mechanic I know, both EMTs and Medics are getting GMCs. BLS will use 3500s, Medics 4500s. I'm not sure of the difference. I'll attach a photo later.
