My 4x4 conversion

I wanted to share with you my 4x4 conversion. I went on a trip from sunny south florida to the mountains of tennessee and quickly realized why everyone up there had 4x4. I got stuck in the snow. Anyways, since i am keeping my truck for a long time and it has a tick over 40k miles, i decided on converting the truck to 4x4. It cost me a total of $4150 with $1000 in rims and tires that i bought off a buddy of mine. The rims in the pictures came off a 2011 king ranch and fit perfect. I bought all new rancho shocks, spring perches, and was able to buy the whole front assembly for $500 from a crashed 2005. My buddy bought everything else for me from the ford dealer. Other than the vin number, you would never know that this truck is a conversion. I wish i had pics of the work being done but the mechanic had no time for pics. I have some of when the whole front assembly was installed and the rear was lower. We put stock 2005 rear blocks. I am happy i did it even though i may never really need it here in flat south florida but its good to know i have it. I plan on going up back to the mountains:

Looks like it came out pretty good. Did you do manual or electric t-case?

Minor, minor complaint. Could stand to be just a little bit taller front and back. 2 inches maybe?

I think it's the 20s messing with my head. Kind of has an SUV stance the way you have it set up right now.

Yeah, you may be right. I looked at your truck on your avatar and yours looks a little taller. Maybe i will raise it a bit in the future. I have small kids so i don't want to make it impossible for them to get in but it may be fun to see them struggle climbing,lol.

I'm also looking into doing this. And I'm just wondering what all would be involved. Starting from transmission. Do I need a different tranny? The transfer case to the front axle. My truck is an 03 and doesn't have leafs but coils which I was told wasn't stock.

Basically trying to get a list and start collecting. I don't plan on doing it for a year or two.
