Ford 4x4 Components

Why a Quigley Van Makes Sense

Why is a Quigley 4x4 van the right tool for the job?  With a Quigley 4x4 van you get more passenger capacity, more cargo capacity and your cargo storage is contained and secured within the vehicle, sheltered from the elements. You get all this for either a lower cost or a comparable cost as the alternatives.


Quigley incorporates a vast majority of Ford components, including the F-350 front drive-steer axle and transfer case (New Venture 2-Speed), into our conversion for ease of service.  Lock out hubs, front shocks, brake pads, brake calipers and rotors are also from the Ford F-Series. With the F-Series brake calipers and rotors we are required to change the E-Series 16” tires and wheels to the F-Series 17” tires and wheels for clearance.  All of these components are purchased new, direct from Ford or the Ford manufacturer.

The pitman arm, torque arms, track bar and various mounting brackets are Quigley engineered and designed in accordance with the SAE specifications.  We use a number of Quigley approved vendors to manufacturer any of these components not built in house.
