Converting 99 F350 2WD to 4x4

I have come up with my winter project. I am going to convert my 99 F350 to 4x4.

Has anyone on here done this conversion before? I know this is gonna be a fun one but I got time and I think it will be kind of fun.\

Any tips are appreciated.

Also...If anyone knows of a wrecked parts truck or anyone trying to unload the front axle and suspension parts that I will need send them my way

i was going to do this a few years back, after holding out for parts i realized it would be more cost effective to just sell the truck and get a 4x4. good luck though, check junkyards, if you can find a truck/van/big vehicle salvage yard they are full of 99-03's, at least the one around here is.

the usual.. some added, some altered, some deleted.

can't sell it

truck has some sentimental value so selling it is out, I only paid $800 to start with for it. It has 299k and out of all the trucks I have owned, it has given me the least problems, (ball joints and an alternator.) So even if I put $4000 into it, I still think I come out ahead (not my wifes opinion) but oh well

They hardly agree with anything that has to do with modifying your truck.

you might want to look into switching to an 05 axle for the coils, but the wheels have different backspacing and I don't know how that'll affect the track

94.5 F250 Reg Cab 4x4 5 speed 4.10 276000 plus miles

97 F350 Crew Cab LB 4x4 5 speed 3.55 320000 plus miles (parts truck)
