Question for those who have done 4wd conversion...
Hey guys, I have a 96 f150 2wd 351 e40d long bed extended cab, I am planning to convert it to 4wd in the near future and have began gathering parts. I have the front axle out of a 91 Bronco with 3.55 gears, a 8.8 out of a 92 f150 with 3.55 gears, a borg warner 1356 transfer case that was in a bronco (not sure it was originally from the bronco though).
Things I know I need but could use some direction on:
-Either a e40d from a 4x4 or a convert mine to bolt to the transfer case. I have found a kit on ebay that has all the parts needed to convert my e4od to a 4x4 e4od for 110 shipped.
-Lock Out Hubs
Is there anything I am forgetting?
Also, will my brakes on the 2wd front axle transfer over for use on the 4wd axle? I have the discs from the 4wd axle, but I'm not sure they're usable, they're very rusty. I do not have the calipers from the 4wd axle.
I plan to replace parts that I should before finishing the conversion, these include:
-Discs, Pads, Drums, Shoes
Do I need a transmission crossmember?
Also, I plan on doing this in as many as 3 stages to keep the truck drivable. One or both axles at the same time, then later on then transmission and transfer case.
Im looking for thoughts, suggestions, things I haven't thought about yet, advice, etc. Let me know what you think.
