O.K. my friend Tom has decided to start building a camper van and converting it to 4wd. I started calling it "Chester" but my wife said it sounded too creepy. The van was found on craigslist for $500, after driving down to a rough neighborhood to look at it he offered $300 and he drove it home. It has a 302/c4.
Yesterday while searching craigslist I came upon a 1978 ford bronco chassis for $400, so off we went to pick it up. The motor is a 351m boat anchor,the tranny and t-case are a np435/205. Right now the plan is to possibly use the tranny and t-case or go with a later model auto with overdrive and a borg-warner t-case. I'll post more pics as it progreses.
