E450 4X4 CONVERSION

HELLO ALL,I'M NEW TO THE FORUM AND JOINED TO GET SOME ADVICE AND SUPPORT ON AN UPCOMING PROJECT I'M PLANNING.I HAVE A 97 E450 FORMER AMBULANCE THAT I PLAN ON CONVERTING TO A 4X4 .THE TRUCK IS IN GREAT SHAPE WITH ONLY 40K MILES AND HAS A 7.3 POWERSTROKE, E4OD TRANS AND DANA 80 REAR DIFF.,NOT TO MENTION AN ALUMINUM BOX ON THE BACK THATS INSULATED,HEATED AND AIR CONDITIONED.I'VE BEEN CONTEMPLATING THIS PROJECT FOR A WHILE AND NOW THAT I JUST CAME ACROSS THE PERFECT DONOR VEHICLE THERE'S NO REASON TO CONTEMPLATE ANYMORE.I JUST PICKED UPA 95 QUIGLEY E350 4X4 VAN WITH A 7.3 POWERSTROKE,E4OD ,BW 1356 TRANSFER CASE & DANA 60 FRONT DIFF.MOST OF THE CONVERSION WILL BE STRAIGHT FORWARD WITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS SUCH AS THE E BRAKE OFF THE REAR OF THE 4X2 TRANS WILL BE LOST WHEN THE TRANSFER CASE IS INSTALLED AND I'LL HAVE TO DO A GEAR SWAP IN THE FRONT DIFF. TO MATCH MY REAR BUT OTHER THAN THAT I DON'T SEEE ANY ISSUE.HAS ANYBODY HERE DONE DONE A SIMILAR CONVERSION ON A E450 AND IF SO WHAT PROBLEMS IF ANY HAVE YOU ENCOUNTERED ?ANY INPUT WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

Re: E450 4X4 CONVERSION

I'm not sure about your application but you might have a space conflict with the transfer case and the stock fuel tank.
