Question

My father passed away and I got his truck, a truck he and I restored during high school in 2002 after it had sat in a field since 1995, we never got around to doing a 4-Wheel Drive swap on it, and I would like to do so and finish what we had planned.

It's an '87 F-150 302ci SB V8
5-Spd Manual

My questions I am seeking answers to are.

1. If I had the steering and front axle assembly from a 4x4 would it bolt on?

2. Whats the best transfer case to use the NP or BW and will it bolt to my trans or will I need to buy a Trans and T-Case that are compatible?

3. On the rear, will I have to modify the mounts to fit the 4WD leafs or will they bolt up?

Advice and Tips appreciated.

Thanks ahead of time and I appreciate anything y'all can do for me.

Re: Question

I don't mean to sound bad here but you'd be better off purchasing a 4x4 vehicle due to the complexity, time and effort it would take to swap out dozens of parts. Still, if you must do the swap, shop around for a similar vehicle that is a 4x4. To verify axle fitment you can go to Yukon Gear & Axle and find out what year front axle should be compatible. If you don't like to search you can contact them and I'm sure they'll help you out the best they can. I'd go with the NP transfer case. I've used them before and haven't had any issues. I can't speak much for the BW units, as I don't have much experience with those. To give you more ideas, search for Dr Evil Transmissions, and you'll see if a new trans is necessary to run the transfer case (I believe it is). Good luck!
