Question about 1985 Ford F150
I have an 85' F150 with a 302 AOD (5.0L) 4x2. I want to know what i need to do to convert it into a 4x4. Its an automatic and ive had a few people tell me that i may need to change the transmission. Detailed advice would be extremely helpful. Thank you.
The best and easiest, and Probably the cheapest way is to find an old beat up 82-89 f150 that is 4x4 usually can be found cheap without motor or lots of body damage, reason for this is that you will need to buy a front end differential, as well as the driveline and transfercase, different transmission and possibly a shorter rear driveline, but if you buy the beat up non running 4x4 you can simply put your body and motor on the 4x4 frame and be done, I have done several this way and works very well, also much faster,easier and cheaper....
