    finally found a divorced tcase to convert my 2x4 dually to 4x4. 203 out of an early 70s ford van conversion. already has the part time kit in it. looks brand new on the inside. was really wanting a 205 but the only one I found was $500 and in Michigan. this one was $300 and an hour ride. ill get more pics when I get it clean and open it up.

    As long as he uses a matching driver side Ford D60 it will be correct.

    yea I have a 2005 ford dana 60 to go in the front. I had a 78 chevy 4x4 dually on the line to strip for parts but the guy is being flaky about it so I changed my plan. the ford 60 was supposed to be for my jeep, that has a 99 dana 50 up front now, but it hasn't broken yet so I can do that later on. originally i was going to use leaf springs to hang the axle on the dually but since it and the axle are both coil spring already Im gonna try to use f350 coils and radius arms.

    Only issue I see is different bolt patterns on the wheels.
