If you think about it, they will use the existing axles. It's essentially remove the coils and add the leafs. Could be a valid price.

Re: Thoughts on new GM van with Lifted IFS 4x4 by Quigley

Very durable. Look at some of the videos Quigley posted last year of them pre-running the Baja.

Re: Agile or Ujoint

I have a Quigley setup and I'm happy with it. I think they are all good. Quadvan, Quigley, Salt Lake, Canada all do a decent job of converting. But there's no comparison right now to the work by...

Re: Agile or Ujoint

My 4x4 Quigley is no better over washboard. Nice and slow is the only way to go if you want to avoid rattles.

Re: 2008 ^ Sleeper van bumper (WTD)

Add another tube under the existing one. Or three total. Beef it up.

Re: Trying to figure out new wheels/tires

My guess is the bolt pattern on the wheels is changed from standard E Series to F Series to accommodate the front axle, which are almost always out of an F Series.

Re: Trying to figure out new wheels/tires

I would find out what 8 bolt Super Duty Ford F Series wheels were available for your model year. I don't think it says what year your van is. Pick up a set of four on CL or Ebay. Buy some tires. More...

If the shit hits the fan you're not going anywhere. Roads will be closed. Shelter in place. Stay home.

Re: My BF Goodrich MT KM2's gave up and separated.

So you got 40k out of the Hankooks and 40k out of the BFG? :a2:

Still I'd rather have a tire go bald in 20 than separate after 30 with all the tread left.[/quote]

Hankooks, Nitto, BFG-KM2,...

Re: My BF Goodrich MT KM2's gave up and separated.

I went with 275/70 17 in the newer BFG KO2. Cheaper than 265 or 285. Go figure.

The van came with Hankooks, (crap). I next went with Nitto TG in 285/70 17, then BFG KM2 in 255/80 17, a tall...
