96 250 4x4 conversion
Since I got my obs powerstroke running again I decided to keep it, build a flat bed, and use it as a work truck. I would like to have another plow truck next winter so 4x4 is a must. I wouldn't mind doing a stick conversion either.
My ideal truck would be a D60, zf5 or zf6, and a manual t-case
I haven't done a ton of looking into this yet as it's a pretty new idea. So I'm looking for advice.
What I need to figure out
-are the frames different between the 2wd and 4wd obs trucks or will the leaf shackles bolt in
-what t-cases will bolt up to the zf5 and zf6 or should I just run a divorced case... I'm thinking that will make finding a transmission easier or allow me to keep the eod4
-I'm thinking my budget will be $1000ish. is this overly optimistic?
