Can't seem to find anyone...

I'm looking for someone who makes/can do a IFS 4x4 conversion for my CHEVY van that is a DIESEL. So far the only one I can find is Quigley and I've only gotten mixed reviews about them. Ujoint focus' on Ford's and QuadVan is the same. A couple other vendors deal primarily with solid front axle conversions only so, is there anyone else that might be able to do a 4x4 conversion with IFS?

Thanks

Re: Can't seem to find anyone...

Nevermind...scratch Quigly off the list as well since they only deal with newer 2010+ vehicles and mine is an 2006. Guess I'm back to square one. Anyone have any ideas?

Closest I can come up with. I assume you have to source your own GMT400 bits and pieces to complete the build. GMT400 = '88-'98 pickups.

I PM'ed him a few weeks ago but he never got back to me. I didn't even know that he was a shop, I just thought he did this as a hobby like most of us. I'm not sure why he never got back to me though...

Cool, I will give them a call tomorrow and see what they have to say. I remember stumbling onto their site a long time ago but couldn't remember who they were.

I would shoot him another PM. I've PM'd him a few times about something and he was pretty responsive.

Re: Can't seem to find anyone...

Sorry, I responded to your first PM and then flaked on the second one (I was trying to find my friend Erin's business card).

Erin works at http://boulderoffroadvans.com/ and they do Chevy vans. I've seen their work and it is really good. I saw Erin at Glen Hellen last weekend and he is on the road for a week or two more before returning to Colorado.

GREAT, seems like I'm on the right track. I'll keep trying to get a hold of Erin I guess it is. I called Boulder yesterday and spoke with a couple ladies and they told me someone would call me back today but I didn't hear anything. Not a problem as I'll keep trying, I'm sure he's busy.

Thanks guys, I'll report back with what he says.

Re: Can't seem to find anyone...

Clydesdale 4x4 also does an IFS conversion for 2004 and newer Chevys, 2500 and 3500's, all motors. Their shop might not be in the most convenient location, but maybe a good resource for info.

http://www.sportsman4x4.com/

I believe buckkiller has a Clydesdale 4x4 conversion. His van is a Ford, but he may have some insight into any quality/build/service questions you may have. I get the impression from his posts that he is pleased with his conversion and his rig is top notch.
