Ive gotten quite a lot done since my last post so here it goes.
Dereks 4wd kit has been installed,I really wanted to tackle this part of the project by myself but with time being an issue I received some help from a friend with a lot more experience than me and a lift in his shop!Heres a few pics.
The van nearly didn't come back out of the shop once the front end was installed.As you can see in the picture I had around less than an inch clearance.
The van sits up a lot higher than I ever expected.Im measuring 21" to the bottom of the body.I measured my stock e350 and its sitting at 13"(did I mention I bought another van hehehehe).
Ladder installed.Still trying to decide on tires right now I'm leaning towards nitto 285s
I am very impressed with how this van drives and handles since the front end is in.Ive had it up to 85mph on the highway and tried to hit every bump and pot hole I see with no DW,darting or wandering. Im running Bilstein 5100 shocks and used the pro comp dual steering stabilizer.Still haven't installed the t-case so she's gonna be a pre-runner for a little bit.
