One of the tall hurdles on any coe project is steering. I'd advise a plan there too.

Thanks My donor chasis is the 91 250 4 wd. When it was rolled in the snow it broke the steering box shaft. When i went to the junk yard i found out that the same steering box fits many years and vans too. I was curious how so i was shown a differant pitman arm for vans and told the same may sit on on frame differantly for angle but the pitman arm change will make the front end right. Do you think this is correct?

Where is the steering box located on the frame? Is it forward of the front axle center line? If behind the axle it will never work.
I used to have an '89 Ford 4x4, but don't remember how the steering was set up...

Ouch, that's pretty bad....
Maybe you could splice in some pieces from some better doors? Regular truck doors are the same except for the front corners.....

Gotcha. I have some extra doors too if you need some patch panels. Just ask....

I kinda wish I had gone ahead with the crew cab on mine......
Maybe the next one?

The explanation on steering sounds good.
Trust but verify.
Bottom line, the steering input shaft wants to be inclined upward like a van, not rearward like a conventional cab truck.

steering box pic

Well got a pic of how far fwd the steering box is on 4wds I think it is far enough fwd to work. If i change the angle like a van bolts on ill use a van pitman arm if i leave it as it is i can keep the existing. This is not my year frame and mine is more boxed fwd so i can change angle. Im glad im planning these things now so it murphy and his law dont bite me later.
