Neither one will do a 4X4 conversion on a used vehicle.
Other than that I've had a few Quigley's never had an issue. If you buy a used van with the Quigley conversion they will have records of the build they are really good about that. I don't know anything about the Smb conversion. Except they have a two stick set up seems kind a cool .

I don't know much about Quigley but here is an old article about the SMB conversions back in the day:

Just called Quigley the other day. They will still convert used vans 2011 or newer and with under 60,000 miles.

Thanks, this a pre-owned Sportsmobile, Quigley did the 4x4 conversion. Just wondering about Atlas transfer case SMB vs New Venture in the Quigley also Dyna Trac front axle SMB vs Dana 50 front axle Quigley.

Can't speak to the Atlas transfer case but the New Venture is what both Ford and Dodge puts in all their heavy-duty pickups. A stout, relatively trouble-free unit. But I'm wondering - the New Venture transfer case is what was used in the later Quigley conversions, so how did that one end up with a Dana 50 front instead of the Dana 60? I'm thinking the main difference between the Dynatrac and the Dana that Quigley uses is that the Dana uses Ford's unit bearing setup versus the serviceable bearings used by Dynatrac.
