I just picked up a used 2001 E250 5.4 2WD RB30 Sportsmobile. My goal in the next year is to get a 4x4 conversion and something like a 4" on 33 lift underneath it. Ive been reading up a lot recently on conversions such as Ujoint and a friend has just installed the 6" on 35's which turned out great and hes really happy with it. Ive also been hearing a lot of good things about Agile Offroad.
I am located in Los Angeles. I usually camp locally with dirtbike on hitch carrier in Santa Barbara, Big Bear, Mojave, Joshua Tree with a longer 2 week road trip every year or so. Im more interested in having 4wd so i dont get stuck rather than attempting king of the hammers and getting super technical. I really want a good suspension so i can move at a brisk pace along those damn desert washboards and rough fire roads that practically rattled my straight axel pathfinder 76 chevy to pieces. I also use my van as a daily driver so that plays a big role in how it handles.
I dont know much about suspension and 4x4, so any advice or suggestions from people who've experienced these kits or know a lot about them would be great. Pros n COns?
also Ujoint pricing is pretty transparent on their website, are there any available prices for Agile offroad?
Thanks guys, dont forget to post pics of your rigs if you've got em
