What's with the angle iron?

That's the bracket that you need to make for the 3rd bolt of the diff.

Round up all the parts and I'm willing to help. Provided you know exactly what you need, this swap actually goes by rather quickly. 98 4x4 ABS sensor in the front are compatible with 02 4x2 ABS systems. Also trans wise, there at 2L5...and1L5....they interchange. That's just with the 5r44e though.

Wheeling pictures to come. Today we're going to get the tcase shifter lengthened.

Ford changed the ABS stuff up in 04. Its a much bigger pain to get a functioning ABS system when doing this swap on the 04+ trucks. It is possible though, 04 EDGE did it.

Thanks man. I need to say thank you to Justin (Toreador 4x4), Rob (My91Ranger), Zach (Redneckstone) and Aaron (not on RF) for making this swap possible. Without them, this wouldn't have happened.

I was told I was going to be called on where something goes, or help with stuff... But not one call...

I wasn't talking to you Zach. I was talking to Tyler and Justin.... You'd never call me anyways.

Now now now. Be nice. lol. We didn't run into any problems so I guess that's why we didn't call. Everything is functional and no problems thus far.
