Introduction ~ Jumping In !

I’ve always appreciated benefitting & contributing to countless forum communities over the years. The Communal Resource is invaluable.

I’m hoping to pick up an ‘01 E150 5.4 192k high roof former disabled lifted van from out of state very soon. In searching the forums for the better part of the day (rather than watching football), I haven’t found a “Sticky” that I typically find on similar forums ( e.g. Jeeps). I might be using incorrect search words... :-(

Is there a ‘Sticky’ (permanent Thread) that lists interchangeable parts or perhaps ‘upgrade’ parts (even via junkyard) for Econolines platform from another ?

Like using F350 something something on my E150 as an ‘upgrade’ / swap. Or Navigator something on my E150 .... I saw a YouTube vid about E350 rear disc brakes for E150. Is there a general ‘Resource’ ?

Am I making my question clear, or have I eaten too much today ?

Thank you,
Stan

Our sticky is carringb, lol.

Seriously though, he is one of many valuable resources here on the forum, but there is no official sticky listing out all the crossover parts that I’m aware of. Your best bet is to search first and if you don’t get your answer that way then ask about specific parts that your interested in upgrading.

Welcome. Agree with shenrie. Plus, most vans on this site are not 150s/1500s, but 250/350s and 2500/3500s.

F series axles are frequently used when doing a 4WD conversion...and modern F series trucks have a different lug pattern than the vans, which requires new wheels or wheel spacers that convert back to van spacing if doing just the rear axle. Older F series truck axles have the same lug pattern as vans, but we need CarringB to provide details on what year that changed.



I'm pretty sure bumpers and tow mirrors don't fit...

1999 was the first year Ford went to the new bolt pattern. For the most part, none of the chassis parts from the E or F 250 & 350 will fit your 150 without serious mods. You can use F250 & F350 axles to convert to a 4x4

If your going to build a camper van I would urge you to look for a E250 or E350 van. The bigger brakes and beefier axles will handle much better when fully loaded.

Not to mention a much lower chance of exceeding the GVW once built out.

APPRECIATE the consideration. I was actually in error, the van that I had targeted is an E250. But the seller is Very Flaky, and getting him to answer messages is ... Tedious. The reference to E & F Cross-utilization was just part.

The yardstick that Iím comparing the notion of a Sticky comes from the JEEP world, where pages exist with Junkyard Swap Parts for example. On pages such as those, it may have: Dodge Durango alternators, Chevy S10 Leafs, Ford Explorer Sway Bars as being bolt-in, or MINIMAL modification required to fit an XJ.

It was in that sense, that I was curious if such a Thing existed here. Regardless, the responses thus far have been Helpful.
