Help identifying 4WD conversion

I've found a used 4WD E350 that I'm considering purchasing.....the van has no Quigley, Quadvan, Salem-Kroger etc emblems on it, and the seller does not know who did the conversion.

It is far away from me so I do not have the luxury of seeing it in person unless I'm willing to make the trip to see it.

Do these pics reveal any clues to the 4WD converter?

Re: Help identifying 4WD conversion

I'm a 4WD dummy, but I can help you start narrowing down if no one else has the definitive answer. My 95 Quigley has the same Warn manual hubs but a totally different looking shifter. Same pattern but everything else about it looks different.

Hope that helps you get started.

Re: Help identifying 4WD conversion

Post year and engine of van and some pictures of the front axle and front axle suspension plus one or two pictures of the back of the transfer case so we can take a stab at it.

Re: Help identifying 4WD conversion

Can you get some photos of the axle from the front and sides by the wheel. If we could see if it has leaf springs or coils might also help narrow down what conversion. I don't recognize the shifter but the hubs could be Quiqley style.

Second what KTMRider said...
Pics of the front axle, coils, springs etc.

I realize you're from SoCal already, but it looks like one of Javier's vans.

Re: Help identifying 4WD conversion

Well, unforch it will be difficult to get more pics.....I can ask the seller if it has leafs or coils in front.

As far as Javier goes, this van is quite far away from TJ.

It is an 08 E350 5.4L

Re: Help identifying 4WD conversion

Those WARN hubs could be any 4WD conversion. Even Ford dealers put them in as replacements since the OEM hubs are made by WARN.

Re: Help identifying 4WD conversion

I have a Salem Kroger on 99 Dodge B3500 and the shifter has a bend toward the front.

Re: Help identifying 4WD conversion

Leafs or coils still won't tell us who did it.

Maybe a couple of pictures would.

- Coils w/4 link = Quigley
- Coils w/Ford locating arms = Salem-Kroger or Quadvan. Have to look at the frame attachments
- Leafs = Advanced 4x4, SMB, UJOR, and more. If the front axle is a D44 = Advanced

Really hard to tell from here.

Mike
