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.

i finally have my truck and have been trying to decide between the crown vic ifs and mustang II. I know the vic is an easier swap, but the real question. I know a lot of people go ahead and use the 4.6 engine. I have a 4.9 straight I have built and want to use can you do this swap without cutting out the cross member or will the 4.9 sit in the cradle without a lot of mods

The engine difference is minor. It's not like it's that much larger.
There will be a lot of fabricating no matter which front end you use. You could brace the original frame mounts and then remove the bare minimum to get the cv front end in, then brace the factory mounts back down to the cv front end. Or measure and build new up to where the old mounts are... Lots of ways to do the same thing, but it relies on your fab skills.

Is there a reason you're keeping the inline? Seems like adding a nice suspension but keeping a low performance engine isn't what most people do. Is your goal to lower the truck, or just better handling?

You may also want to start a new thread if this gets very involved. This original thread has been inactive up until a little while ago. Lots of great info if you take the time to scan through all the pages.

Sorry it took so long to respond I forgot my password and it took an act of God to straighten it out I had never rebuilt an engine a friend gave me the motor they are bulletproof and very torquey the front end for handling I don't want to go too low it's not going to be a show truck but I want it to look good be reliable and can handle hauling thinking about tinkering with the rear end gears and extending the rear axle to bring the wheels closer to the fender edges

Welcome to FTE and the Bumpside Kingdom.
Get an axle assembly out of a Dentside truck (73/79) at a local JY or PNP. They are wider than a Bumpside axle.

Depends on a few things. 1st off, depends on which rear end you buy. What ratio it will already have in it. What is the purpose of the truck once built? Hauling and towing or just a cruiser. Daily driven or every once in a while. Expressway or surface streets. All aiming at whether it will get an O.D. tranny or not. Also what size engine to figure a lot of low end torque or not. The rear gears I'd pick would be different comparing, say, a 240 and a 390.
