Welcome to FTE.

You want a written list and measurments? Good luck with that. What you are thinking about undertaking is hot rodding and fabrication. It's not a "kit" so be prepared.

The first step is to do your homework. We'll help you out with the details but if you expect a step-by-step how to then you're in over your head already.

Read and learn from others' experience:

I can't give you any advice on the swap besides it's super easy and check out the threads listed by HIO Silver. I think this one was the first thread on the subject http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/71...o-67-f100.html

I had a thread on what I did for the rear of mine to match the new bolt pattern and width of the CV front.

Have fun

I dont know the dimensions of the Mustang K-member, but the big fabrication challenge would be building strut towers. That's the allure of the CV suspension. It is all self contained.

I like the idea of your kit and I'm not trying to be an a$$ but $219 seems a little high for 10 small pieces of steel with some screws and bolts. Your kit doesn't address motor mounts. Sorry if I missed where it does.

I've seen this guy posting on CL selling the install kit, the front clips as well as installation for $1500. He was selling the clips for $500 which I used as negotiation to buy one from another guy. He's since raised his price. I haven't been down to look for the materials yet, but I agree, $220 is crazy expensive for what it is.

What about dropping the sheet metal directly on a crown vic? Others have mentioned it as an option but I havent been able to find any dedicated threads.

While it could be done, the frame on the Crown Vic is not straight(ish) like the truck. The frame widens out behind the firewall to the outside edge of the car. It has a fully boxed frame though. But if your doing that I'd just buy an older Crown Vic as they are far cheaper to buy.
None of your cab mounts will fit the new frame shape, but you would get the nice 5 link rear set up.

Here's one where they put a unibody on a marauder frame. Different year ford truck and it's a Mercury frame, but basically the same thing you're looking to do.
