I really don't see the need since you have the option to unlock the hubs with the factory 4wd, but if you really want to spend 2 grand on the kit I don't see why the ones for the f-250 wouldn't work, same axles and steering knucles along with hub assembly, it should interchange

I just got done installing the Dynatrac free spin kit on my 01 Excursion. Yes it does fit, I would make sure you get new u-joints. They will send spacers for the brake calipers when you re-install them. Mine took the .300 spacers, which is the larger of the two. Couldn't be happier. For the vacuum hose for the 4 wheel drive system that goes into the knuckle, take the threaded end off the hose insert a bearing and reinstall the threaded end, that will plug the vacuum hose and you can reinstall it on the knuckle. Good luck.

No problem. If you do it, have extra cash for extras. Ball bearings, shocks, u-joints, brake pads, rotors. Once you get in there you might as well replace anything that might need replacing.
