Ujoint Leaf conversion

So hereís the story.... I bought someoneís project that never happened, then it never happened for me either...so I bought a completed van instead. I havenít looked at these parts for awhile, so I may be missing something. Iíll try in the next week or so to have pictures available. Iíll try to organize this list as honestly as I can, but I am not an expert on van/truck parts...

New Parts
-Ujoint Offroad 4x4 leaf 4Ē conversion kit with Bilstein shocks, new leaf springs made for 5.4p van. Kit was before he changed to crossover steering.
-Ujoint Frame drilling jig.
-Fuel tank jig and shortening kit
-Lots of miscellaneous ujoints and bushings

Used but known good
-Front axle with steering knuckles, known good inner axles and unit bearings (donít know if the unit bearings are good or not) out of a running Ford Truck that was in rear end collision. I was told it was a Dana 60, but someone I trust told me it was a 50. I was told it had 3.73 gears in it but not confirmed. Axle has been por15 coated
-all control arms and linkages out of the same truck
-Transfer case shifter assembly from same truck
-ABS wires
-Drag link extender

Itís too risky for me to call these ďknown goodĒ and burn someone down the road, but Iíve been told these are out of working trucks
-4x4 auto transmission, 4R70W for 4x4... electrical connector is burned and needs replacement, I was told it was burned being close to a cutting torch while cutting a totaled truck up.
-BW1356 Transfer case, looks to be in fair shape, no idea of history.

I might be missing some things, Iíll update as I dig the stuff out. My parts list of things I needed is rotors, calipers (have some but donít look great), brake line, wheels, tires, rear spacers for track width and rear lift blocks. This isnít all inclusive, but itís what I remember.

I know this ad sucks without pictures, and Iíll try my best to get to the parts as soon as I can. Iíve had this stuff since 2013, so itís pretty buried, half the reason for this ad is to force myself to get off my butt and dig it all out.

I donít have the time to ship this, wouldnít even know where to start, so Iím going to request local pick up, but Iím not opposed to helping as best as I can.

How about 4000 bucks. I think thatís what a new ujoint kit costs and you can have the other stuff just for being cool. If your really interested, PM me and weíll chat on the phone. Thanks!

That's funny, I wish he wasn't so close. Too many projects and not enough space already.

Price Drop. $3700.
Took a few crappy IPhone pictures I can text or email if there's any more interest... not smart enough for right side up iPhone pictures.

You couldn't duplicate what you've got, combination of new and used parts (that will need checking out) for less than $11K

Someone is going to get a screamin' deal!
