Just a quick reply from me, I think I covered most of my opinions with S&K in the titular post, but for me it was mostly cost and flexibility. S&K had no problem designing a 4x4 upfit the way I wanted it etc, and it cost less than SMB.

@airsick hehe.. I wasn't the first S&K customer either, but I've certainly recommended a few after me. I'm not done working with S&K yet, either, as I have a few ideas they're working up for me (body plating to protect the starcool, espar components, front skid plate etc.

Here's an excerpt from my invoice for the standard part of the conversion:

Dana 60 Super mono-beam front axle with 7,000 lb. disc brakes ( requires minimum 17 inch 8 on 170 MM wheels to fit over rotors ), manual hub locks, drag link, tie rods ( converted van turns tighter than a stock van ), coil front suspension with bolt on frame mounts, 2 speed NV271 "shift on the fly " transfercase, manual floor mounted shifter ( not in way of rotating drivers seat ), 4 wheel ABS.
STANDARD CONVERSION TO INCLUDE FOLLOWING NEW NON FORD PARTS,

Then as far as options go, with S&K your imagination and budget seem to be the limits.

Tough to say as I haven't wheeled it into a position where either front wheel would leave the ground, plus with the air ride suspension there's a articulation strap which will keep the wheel from dropping more than what appears to be about 10 inches.

Hi guys I am doing a similar swap to my 06 e350 with a 06 f350 donor. I am doing a king coilover with 6" lift. Where did you get your spring perches? Also I am having a hard time getting my track mounting bracket to work. I can send pic if needed. I was just curious if you had any pics of the track bar while it's all put together?
