    That was a kit from here:

    But I don't see it listed on his site anymore. The kit was FAR from bolt on,needed a bunch of work to be right. Came with wrong misalignment spacers,the adjustment sleeves were too long had to cut down,cut off the stock tierods,cut down the heim threads. All only because the sleeves were the wrong length. Waited months to receive it,and the guy was not very professional to deal with. Kit was $280.00. Maybe he got his s**t together and will do better...good luck with it.

    In your CV install, is the bump steer kit fabricated or bought?
    Thanks in advance.

    A donner truck would make things easy, and you can also remove the front shock mounts from it to use.

    Alright, so from what I'm gathering, the absolute best way I should approach the swap on the low would be looking for a 7.3 (blown up for all I care) powered 4x4 for the donner truck. This would at best give me (hopefully) working 4x4 trans and trasnfer case already buttoned up and ready to go, the front shaft, computer, harness, axle, steering linkage, arms, and diff. I'm hip on using new perches, shackles, I want to lift while I'm doing it so new leafs would have to come out of the pocket, and new buckets for the shocks, The rear shaft would most likely have to be made up unless its a 4x4 with a CC and 8ft box, but around here they are getting up in price. I'm trying to do it on the low, but not to the point where theirs scotch tape and zip ties holding it together. I've been looking through your builds, and holy hell brother your rides are amazing.

    Gasser t case will work,but you need a 4x trans or swap the tail housing/output shaft on your current trans. I did this on mine, but it requires complete trans tear down to do.

    Hey, tons of questions about the 350 DRW 4x4 conversion. What parts can I steal from old rust buckets to help with the swap? Mostly curious about the gasser's transfer case, if it can be mounted on the back of the 7.3's trans. Any help is welcomed, cheers.

    Thanks for the reply, makes sense to me! If I follow you correctly, you would have had a wider track in the rear when you were running singles...which is what I thought I saw in the pics of your truck.

    Steve, the truck was a 2wd dually when I bought it new. Then converted to 4x with a standard hub D60. At that time I ran wide 12" singles with a 2" billet spacer out back to get the tire at the edge of the dually fender. Now on the duals, I mounted dually adapters up front and no spacers in the rear. Clear as mud? LOL?

    Looking to do something very similar to your F-350 build (which looks stellar, by the way), and I'm wondering if you could answer a question I have specific to your build.

    Is your track width front/back the same with your single wheel setup? Did you leave the drw hubs on the front, and simply run srw wheels all around?

    Thanks in advance,

    Can-Back, I bought it about 17yrs ago. They went out of business and have been bought out and are under new ownership. No longer make for the OBS trucks,though.
