This is an old and for the most part dead thread. I don't know what you want pics of but the CV swap is common place now. The IRS is also becoming quite popular. His diesel, I haven't seen the 4BT in other builds but larger diesels in larger size (250 & 350) trucks while not that common are out there.

A search on any of these topics will yield info and pics other than this thread. Here is one with the CV up front and the IRS out back. http://www.fordification.com/forum/v...p?f=22&t=54398

Yes a shameless plug for my truck.

Check Coker Tire for their HotRod Steel Wheels, many different sizes 15-20 and all still take the 8 1/4 inch inner diameter hubcaps.

And I'd like to also give it a bump with regard to the new TCE big brake kit options for the CV front end. Building upon our Marauder kits over the years we've revised this kit now to include 15" rotors paired with the Wilwood Aero6 front caliper. A sweet and simple package fairly priced for your custom build needs!

Nice brake kit. Looks like the marauder kits need wheel spacers. Does the cv kit? If so, that will probably be a problem on a f100 swap. The track width of the cv is much wider than the original F100 so that already limits how low you can go and usually necessitates custom wheels. $2200 = ouch to most of the people who do this budget based cv swap. Good luck.

Thanks. Good catch; clearly we've packaged this as inboard as possible for maximum wheel clearance, but yes wheel fit will be based on the wheels design for sure. Deep dish wide lips are out. A good brake friendly spoke is needed.

The standard Marauder 13 and 14" kits will also work but have narrower 1.10" rotors. Also they will need a smaller 1" bore mc due to the piston sizing. Those use the narrowest of options the FNSL6 caliper.

For now the CV conversion was being thought more to be the 15" market.

For the money....it is well priced really. Perhaps a few hundred more that similar Wilwoood 15" factory kits is all.

Thanks for looking.

Sounds like you got everything going as planned for yourself, good job man. I was wondering if you were going to leave the rear end stock or are you going to add a crown vic rear end? I'm asking because I plan on doing the crown vic front suspension as well but want to do the rear as well while not giving up my 9" rear end.

Hate to tell ya, but this dude hasn't been on in nearly two years. I doubt you will get a response.
