Nifty! Thanks for the pics.

Isn't Quadvan great? I had a new (2014) front end put on my Concourse there last year, and I couldn't be happier with the results or the shop/people/work.

Your Chinook looks great.

John at Quadvan is a great guy and sure knows his stuff! He has controverted around 8 Glaciers to 4-Wheel drive and many Concourses. There was no guess work as the conversion is well engineered and was offered as an option from Trail Wagons when they were still in business. All components are "New" 2016 Ford F series. The brakes are amazingly powerful, the ride is excellent with no wander in the steering like it had before the conversion.

Although I didn't go 4WD, I had just about the same experience at Quadvan. New front end, clearly polished routine, impeccable work, and it stops like a dream compared to before! The brakes are the reason I converted to the new front end; the rest of the improved suspension was just the icing on the brake cake.

Maybe 4WD next time :D
