Took my chrome center caps and knocked out the center piece, the drilled a gozillion holes in the cap on the ring where the center caps were glued to, hammered that ring out, and then put them on my front end. Home made 4wd center caps from my old 2wd center caps. Saved a whopping $10 in JY parts looking for a 4wd with the chrome center caps still on it and probably 2x that in gas driving from you pull it yard to you pull it yard. The 4wds of our generation just hold enough value to keep people from scrapping them. I see some just a little banged up of the 2wds and wonder how they made it to the yard.

Please give details, did you rob coil springs from an F-250 2wd? The only 4wd F250 I've seen were leaf springs. I'm interested in this bc I did the 2wd to 4wd upgrade but did not add the rear lift blocks and I like how lwvel it sits. Been thinking about adding the lift blocks in back but don't know how to level it. The 2wd F250s are easy to find. I just need to find leveling blocks to match.
