I just got a 88 E-250 van with a 4.9l 300 inline six. My goal is to turn it into a atv/camping rig. I am trying to research a way to lift it a little so I can get some 33's on it. This is my new project and I plan on keeping everyone updated. Just thought I would share because I'm really excited about it. Oh and here are a couple updated pics of the ranger as well. Let me know what you think.
Thanks everyone for the complements and any idea's are welcome. I have done my homework on lifting the van. Since it's two wheel drive, for now, I am going to do an old school pre-runner look. No one makes a kit for this year van. Camburg makes one for newer vans 93 and up. John from Autofab will make me a kit, but I have to send him my parts, he bends the beams for alignment, throws lift coils and beams in the box and sends it back to me, for $850 plus shipping and 2 new shocks. That’s a little to much for my budget but I'm sure its quality work and parts, so I'm going to try to do the same. The van has twin I-beam front suspension with king pins and different length beams. A local shop can bend the I-beams for alignment but I don’t know what springs to get? I was thinking E-350 springs with those 2inch cheapo coil spacers, but who knows how that would ride or handle. I have a feeling F-150 coil springs will work but don’t know for sure. So let me hear your ideas, oh and here are some pictures.
