1980 Ford F-100 4x4 Conversion

I live in Medford and I'm working on doing a 4x4 conversion on my 2wd F-100. I have everything but new (j-yard) radius arms, rear driveline and I need to find a new outer shell for my NP-208 transfer case. The t-case is married to an NP-435 and comes with front diff, 3rd member, front driveline, both IFS axles, 3-4" lift (front/rear), Warn Hubs, dual shock setup, add a leaf, axle shafts and several misc parts. I'm only doing the conversion for an as needed scenario, I'm not looking to go wheeling or anything. I got the 300 4.9L L6 and have done a lot of work to it. After I get all the parts I need for the conversion, what kind of things should I do to ensure everything is going to work how it should or what I should do before/during/after the whole conversion?

That is a big project, I know on the older trucks, that the frames are so different between a 2wd and a 4wd, that makes it very hard to convert one. I have a 80 Bronco with the IFS, I have not looked at a 2wd to see what is different about them. Post pictures of your project to see how it is going.

I'll post pictures as soon as I can so you can see the progress I have made. It's going to take me a little to get it done because the truck is my daily driver.

Sense it bolts to the tail of the C6, which should be the same, SHOULD be. Check to see if it transfer cases are the same type.

Well that's what I'm worried about,the big block c6 I can get is a two wheel drive model.

You can have the tail shaft changed to fit a transfer case
