What 4 X 4 System Best - For Which Rig ?

Hi All - this is for all the SMB/4x4 veterans out there --

Whats the best non-Quigley 4x4 on the market today - assuming one had a --

Transit to 4x4 ? -- Adv 4x4 -- Quad Van 4x4 -- SMB Texas ?

A GMC/Chevy Express Long Body -- Adv 4x4 -- Quad Van 4x4 --

Advance 4x4 --- Quad Van 4x4 -- SMB Texas ?

A Ford Econo E250/350 - 5.4L to 4x4 -- Advance 4x4 -Quad Van-- SMB TX

A Ford E250/350 - V10 -- Adv 4x4 -- Quad Van 4x4 - SMB TX ??

Maybe SMB Texas is not doing 4x4 at all ?? Not Sure - any knowledge ?

Thanks. -- "doublevan"

Smb texas doesn't do 4*4.

Timberline is another option. Depends where you are.

Best initial recommendations would be to asses what kind of off-roading you will be doing, and to pick a conversion company near where you live.

Have you searched this forum for info on these companies? I recommend doing so if you haven’t. Lots of info to read.

Why not quigley?

Also look into expo vans, agile, and ujoint for other 4wd conversation options.

If you are not into anything outrageous off road, the stock AWD on a new transit or sprinter (if you are made of $$$) is worth considering as well. It will ride a lot better around town and on reasonable dirt roads. You will also spend a lot less time crawling through snow and mud to mess with locking hubs and sway bars.



If you want to do silly things with your van, I really like my Quigley down under.

Yea why not Quigley? I like that you’re keeping your options open but you’re actually not if you eliminate them off the top.

Last I saw Quigley won’t convert used E-vans anymore, and only will do Transits that meet tight age and low mileage restrictions.
