recently picked up a wanna be smb.1999 2wd eb 250 5.4l v8,with full camper conversion. (propane heater,stove,water heater, sink,2way fridge,t.v.,microwave,gaucho style fold out bed,cabinets,honda 2000w generator,etc.etc,). first thing i did was alloy wheels and 265`s, tinted windows,and the towing mirror swap. while i would love to do a u-joint 4wd conversion a mild (2") lift is what i`m looking to do. the action van lift would also be nice but either is probably overkill for what my intended use is. main plan is towing my 1968 early bronco to 4wheel. first time i flat towed was similar to mr.toads wild ride.DOWN RIGHT SCARY!. so plans are in order to upgrade suspension to e-350 standards and add a little lift at the same time. rear springs have a negative arch so will get e-350 springs from wrecking yard and add a leaf to them. front will get the 4600lb spring with bilsteins. how should this work out? other plans are winch and custom bumpers,exhaust,chip,swap semi float rear for full floater with locker and 4.10 gears,safari type roof rack.
