Quadvan 4x4

In honor of the Quigley 4x4 thread, I'm creating one specifically for Quadvan to discuss that product and share our experience and knowledge.

What I've learned so far is there will be 2 options. 0in lift and 4in lift. Need to clarify if the lift is actually giving more clearance or not.

Max tire size is listed at 245/75/16. Ford really screwed the pooch on the tiny wheel wells. This is going to be a challenge for adventure van builders.

I don't think the Transit is a replacement for the out going E350 vans in this regards.

Is that a low, medium, or high roof?

What do you think the 4" lift is going to look like on the high roof? Too unstable?

Yeah, a 4" lift on a high roof seems like it'd be really tall. What other suspension mods/component upgrades are they doing to maintain stability with that lift?

What rear end? 3.73 or 3.31? Tire size creating gearing issues?

My understanding from talking to John at QuadVan is that he will gear it to whatever you want. Tires are included in his package so he accounts for the new tire size and gears the front and back accordingly.

Do you know how much he charges for a Transit 4x4 conversion?

I didn't get a firm price out of him but it was around $13,000.

Does anyone have a good source for Quadvan info (beyond calling/emailing them directly - which also sounds like an iffy process)? I have heard a lot of good things about their conversions, but as other posters have noted the Quadvan website is not very useful. There is no mention of Transits at all.

I am debating between a Quigley and Quadvan conversion on the van I plan to purchase this month. Quigley is only a few hours from where I live now, but Quadvan is much closer to where I will live when this van finally comes off the production line. I've heard good things about both. Quigley's new website has plenty of Transit info - and they've been very helpful and prompt responding to phone calls/email. I don't want to write off Quadvan, but it's hard to learn much about them.
