1999 e-250 Quigley kit in a 210 e350?

Is it possible to use a 1999 e-250 Quigley kit to convert a 2010 e-350 to 4wd? Are there additional parts I'd need, modifications that would need to happen, issues, problems, etc. Both are RBs I think if that matters. Let me know. I'd be asking a mechanic to do this as I have neither the shop nor skills to DIY....


Thanks all!

I wouldn't recommend it. Juice isn't worth the squeeze. ABS issues, poor ride & handling, tiny fuel tank, proprietary wearing parts, etc.

Do you have both vans? Meaning do you have the entire 1999 van? Also- are you getting an insane deal on the 4x4 van?

I would do it if you could basically get the donor van for free and just pay labor. Any more than that and you should just have someone install a ujoint kit and source the parts yourself. He has worked out the kinks. Might be able to use some parts from the quigley like the front axle and transfer case but maybe not.

Yea - I think this was too ambitious for the costs (It was cheap, but it wasn't the whole van, I'd have to travel some ways to get it, and a few parts looked to be in pretty rough shape). I've been looking at the lift and locked option that you've brought up Grampswrx, and I think for the costs, effort, and simplicity, it's likely the way to go. Thanks all!

Trying to make the old setup work with RSC will need enough changes, you'd be better off starting with modern parts.
