I have done some things slightly odd for some peoples eyes but i have done this for a reason. I plan to make this a production kit for Rangers, Explorers, and Sport tracs.

I also plan to offer a kit to use a 70`s Ford Dana 44.

I co-own an offroad shop with my Brother so this is well within our realm of things possible.

We are well known for our 4wd Van Conversions in Canada on Chevy and Ford Vans and our business has been doing this stuff since the 70`s.

I would definitely be interested in a kit for my mountaineer, I like what I see so far!

Any updates ?

I would really like to purchase a kit when you have them available an I was wondering if you have looked into using axles out of the newer 4 door jeep wranglers with the Rubicon package cause they have 4.10 or 4.56 gear ratios an E-lockers an electronic disconnect anti sway. I'm wanting to regear my 09 ranger an ive been told that the Explorer sport trac use the same axles an I can't seem to find a kit to regear to 4.10 but I would really like to gear to 4.56s an I already have a 4 inch lift but I'd like to get a couple more inches before I jump waist deep into a straight axle conversation an I was wondering what you would recommend to get a couple more inches of lift but not by cranking up the tortion bars cause I tried that an I didn't like how it made the truck ride an handle so any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Can you go into detail about your modified factory steering shaft?

I don't think there will be options for steering, but I do have a couple ride height option ideas, and also a coilover version, and also plan to offer a dana 44 ford version. The Dana 44 jeep tj axle can use the current kit. I don't have anything to sell yet as I'm still working on cnc plasma patterns and frame jigs
Any progress on the kit?
