I've owned quite a few fords in the past.
1998 f150 2wd supercab 4.2 manual - totaled
2006 mustang 4.0 manual - traded in
2006 f150 4wd supercab 4.6 auto-stolen
1961 f100 2wd 289ci manual - sold
1986 bronco 4wd 5.8 auto - sold
1986 mustang convertible 3.8 auto - sold
1964 econoline panel van 170ci manual - still driving
1993 f150 2wd supercab long bed 5.0 auto - still driving
1994 mustang 3.8 auto - still driving
there was a couple Chevys a Dodge and a Nissan in there too (all trucks) but we're not gonna talk about that.

My f150 and the bronco I am looking for now is why I'm here. My f150 is going to be my tow/recovery rig for my bronco which I plan on wheeling hard. The f150 although 2wd has a 2 inch level lift and 3 inch body lift sitting on 285/70-17 BFG km2 on 17x8.5 MB chaos wheels. I am converting it to 4wd and doing an sas with 12 inch lift (plus the body lift makes it 15 inch) on 39x13.50-17 BFG bajas. I have most of the parts and the tires already. When I have everything I will start a thread on my build.

Good luck with everything! wouldn't it be easier to get a f150 that is already 4wd? that seems like a lot of work to do, when i'm sure you can find one reasonably priced.

Either way. Welcome to the site!

It would be cheaper and easier however I get more thrill out of the build. In this case it is cheaper since I traded a vehicle that cost me $500 straight across for a truck with the only flaws being it needed a transmission, oil pan gasket and oil pressure switch. $30 in parts and a free e40d w/t-case later and all that was fixed. As for the sas that would cost the same wether the truck was 4wd or not. Thanx for the welcome I look forward to being here and learning from others.
