Quouple of Quigley Questions

Anyone running 315/75/16's on their Quigleys? I've heard with some trimming on the Bushwackers, 35" meats will fit. Anyone wacked their transfer case on something immovable? Sure could use a skidplate there.

Re: Quouple of Quigley Questions

So no one has tried 35" tires on their Quigley? How about some protection for the transfer case?

315s on a Quigley

Hi Tom. I'm running 315/70-17 BFG All Terrains on our 2007 Quigley and they fit, but just barely. I need to take off the Bushwacker flares and trim back some body sheet metal at the rear of the front tires and front of the rear tires as the tires will slightly rub on the flares if the suspension flexes significantly. Quigley said the max tire size for my year was 305s (33") tall, but I like the extra height and don't get any rubbing while turning. Rim offset will determine if you get rubbing while turning.

The lack of a transfer case skid plate is criminal in my opinion, and I want to fab one up ASAP. Ford has the sense to offer skid plates for its factory 4x4s, Quigley should do the same. The factory Ford NV271 transfer case Quigley uses is a big piece of expensive, fragile aluminum waiting to get damaged with any serious offroading. I think SMB has the Atlas transfer case tucked up sufficiently in the frame rails so as not to need a skid plate.

Re: Quouple of Quigley Questions

I have a set of 305-75-17 (34 1/2) inch tires I am going to put on my 2000 quigly as soon as I find some rims. I have been looking to try to find some info on bushwacker flares. My question is for switchfoot does the bushwacker flare gain any body clearence or just for looks and paint protection. I am wanting to cut openings as much as possible but I do not want to spen 350 bucks on flares if they do not help my cause. I am trying to keep from lifting my van any higher than stock but running the biggest possible tire I can on it. I was thinking you could trim the front wheel well openings towards the back and cheat the flare that direction putting part of it on the door to help the cause. Do you think that would be possible. I totally agree on the skid plate I have only had my van out twice so far and have had to stop before dragging the t-case. Other than that I have been impressed with my van ability but it needs some tweaking that is for sure!

Re: Quouple of Quigley Questions

dsw4x4, just looked at your sig.

2 early broncos, and going for a Cummins swap on one of them! Oh, I am SO jealous. Always loved the idea of a 4BT. Did you score a bread truck or a Frito Lay truck?

Re: Quouple of Quigley Questions

That spot is actually right outside Estes Park Colorado if you tilt you screen till the tree is actually growing straight up and down it is a little more realistic. Just the right time at the right angle I guess. Yes my 4bt came out of a chip truck is was adapted to a chevy 4spd I scored a small block ford adaptor for it but still have not figured out what tranny I am going to run in it yet.
