Id say early 99 to 2000.

I own a 2000 haha, but i think people like them more cause the forged rods and all.

are you going to soup up your E350 and try to run 400+ hp in it? I know forged rods are stronger, but on the other side pointless if you arent going to jack up the power considerably Pkus as far as I know unless you pull the inspection plug near the oil filter you cant know for 100% that you have forged or PMRs. 99-03 are all great, and I dont know of any issues in these years. So best shape for best price is the key. Vans are a little bit of an issue, becuase about 99% of them arte used for work, where you would be alot luckier finding a babied F250 in these years like I did.
