Anyone know if that van would have something similar to an Agile Twin-traction-beam 4WD conversion in the front end? Or is this likely a conventional straight-axle 4WD setup much like Quigley, Quadvan, etc install?

It mentions "Ford 250 front end conversion."

This is not 100%, but the description alludes to the conversion being done a while back, which would be ttb.

The rims are 8 lug 1990's ford f250 rims which would confirm that. This would most likely be dana 50 which is exactly what agile uses. I don't think the d44 came 8 lug. Not sure on the lug count on d44hd.

So my bet is d50 ttb.

Edit: don't think anyone would put a newer axle in then run 8x6.5 rims like the ones pictures. Newer solid axles would be 8x170.
