Quigley 4x4

Talked with Quigley rep yesterday and received some info back today.
They are at least a year out for installing on Transits.
Shift lever boot will be between the front seats, taking into account the location of the parking brake, this will further limit area to get from front seats to cargo area.

Quigley posted the following updates .

8/19/14 - Received a small sample of a specific powertrain part to test form, fit and function. Finalizing crossmember measurements with our Faro Arm.



8/11/14 - Gave the green light for our pattern maker to start on our transfer case adapter housing mold. This will be 2 - 3 week process. Then we will have our casting vendor pour a small test sample. The casting pour will take about 4 weeks until we have a casting we can machine.



8/08/14 - Met with various vendors to supply them with several part drawings we have finalized.

As far as I know, these are the only guys working on this. I haven't heard anything from Quad Van or Sportsmobile. Does anybody have Transit 4x4 info on these other guys? I hope the Quigley rep was being conservative and that they have a 4x4 no later than early next summer. Initially, they were saying by the end of this year, but apparently Transit delays have pushed them into next year.

Additional Quigley 4x4 Updates

Not sure how long these updates have been sitting there, but I just cruised by in my Virtual High Roof Cargo and here's the latest. Sure would be nice to know what ballpark price they're looking at.

Here's the link if you want to check for updates:

2014 Ford Transit

Quigley Motor Company is planning to offer our 4x4 system on the new Transit full size line which is geared to replace the E-Series in 2014. Please monitor this News section in the up coming months as we will keep you informed when we learn more details. We thank you for your interests in the new Ford Transit model line.

9/12/14 - The mock-up adapter housing is completed. We can start moving forward on the mid-section designs which include fitting the transfer case and related components.

9/11/14 - Still waiting on some updates for component availability. pricing and lead times.

9/10/14 - After the re-design the suspension and steering are working without issues.

9/08/14 - After a weekend of test driving engineering and our lead techs have both determined that there are a few minor clearance concerns to work out.

9/04/14 - We were able to get the front suspension and steering to a stage where we can drive the proto-type on the road to check out clearances and handling. Will be off the lift and on the pavement tonight for some test driving!

8/25/14 - Started fabricating adapter housing in our machine shop. This will be used to keep design moving forward as we await for adapter casting to be made and sample casting to be poured. Making this in house will help setup our CNC machines with the programming as well as to verify our design.

All,
Saw those post on the Quigley site also, but I based my info above, on a call to the factory and talking with them.

More Updates

Quigley updated their timeline and added a comment about pricing, though not exceptionally helpful.

Enjoy!

We are looking at the entire model line-up and all 3 powertrain options. However this cannot be confirmed until our final design and testing are completed, just as we cannot offer a price at this time.

10/02/14 - Removed the mock up casting and installed the new machined casting. Next phase involve the axle and front hubs.

9/30/14 - Sample casting passed analysis and are machined.

9/23/14 - New adapter castings arrived. Sent back to machine shop. Should have them analyzed and machined by the end of the week.

Thanks for posted these. I'm sure if you get more updates you will post them up here and keep us updated. I have been googling Moab Transit pictures but couldn't find anything.

Any idea what size those BFG's are? Is that max size or is there any further lift available ?

Cheers

No clue. I have asked my contact at Quigley about tire size and lift, no response yet.

I called Quigley a long time ago and the guy said the van will sit about 2" higher and likely fit a 265 type tire size. If my memory serves me correctly.


With that being said its hard to tell if that red van in those pictures does sit 2" higher and those are 265 sized tires (~31.5")??


It definitely looks better than stock tires, and would look much better with a good set of wheels.
