Crown Vic IFS

Guys,
Planning a F100 build, don't have the truck yet, just trying to work out all of the parts needed. I would like to convert to the crown vic IFS but don't like the idea of mismatched bolt pattern from front to rear. Just wondering if anyone has swapped in the crown vic rear using the original suspension and if so how does it look and drive? My current thoughts are to utilize the front suspension, rear end, engine and trans. I do have pretty solid fabrication skills and access to a CNC capable machine shop. I love the looks of the 4.6 with the edelbrock carb intake! I have the next year to plan as I'm in the process of heading to SWA for the Army. Like the theme of this truck, but can't pull the trigger on it at this time.

Thanks,
rhino3

Source an early 80s F100 rear axle with the 5x4.5 bolt pattern. Alternatively, retrofit a MN-12 (Cougar/TBird) rear subframe and independent rear suspension using the kit on the market or fab your own mounts.

It'll ride like a Crown Vic... but not as quiet or comfortably.

This link brings you to my build I didn't like the idea of the 2 different bolt patterns either so I bought a rear end out of a wrecked 2010 gt 500. Came with new slotted rotors, calipers and pads. Also had an aluminum Shelby diff. cover, sway bar and a watts link setup. $1200 on ebay. The rear end is the perfect with if you use mustang wheel dimensions. I am running 11"-12" rubber and I have a finger and half spacing on both sides.
