High-Top E250 2WD to 4WD project

Howdy from Central Texas. I have a 99 E250, 5.4-2valve, Dana 60 rear end with OEM gears, assume 3:73 ratio, extended wheelbase, high top (TurtleTop) van that is my moto-van project. Its job in its current life is to haul/tow MCs, trailers & boats. I am doing research on a 4WD conversion and what is the best parts donor vehicle for the E250? I was looking on Ford Truck forums when a member sent me over to this forum. Am I in the correct forum? After an initial search I do not see correct forum section for 4X4 conversions. Where am I suppose to be looking for list of required parts and other conversion info?

Best parts donor vehicle is? Year, model etc? Excursion, Pickup? Thanks in advance for your assistance in pointing me to correct area.

I believe that Agile Off Road stopped doing their TTB conversion due to scarcity of parts. They are keeping parts to service prior conversions. Also, I was told that they are phasing out or no longer doing the RIP (ride improvement package) to Ford Quigley conversions. I'm sure it's a business decision based on the current trend towards Sprinter/Transit conversions but it's a shame because I have two Quigleys I'd like their RIP installed on. My Quigleys have very low miles so I haven't had any problems but heard that the RIP dramatically improves ride quality and eliminates the potential for the dreaded death wobble.

Thank you for the links...there is wealth of information in that first link! I really like what Chris is doing over at Ujoint. He said it was around $20K to "de-Quig" my Quigley van. I'm not sure I want to spend that much but if I was doing a new conversion I would seriously consider his solution.
