Was that episode qiute a while ago? He has an '05-'07 truck, so it was a direct swap, but it shouldn't be much different. Ok I found a donor truck with everything I need. The front Set up out of a 4x4 F150 is a bolt in. Due to variations in stock rear block height 1. However they always end with people saying it is way too much work and fabrication and no one ever seems to follow through with the conversion.
. New shocks optional, leveling kit will install without new shocks. If you're going with leaf springs, I'd imagine the setup is a little different. There is no aluminum in any adaptor. I found a donor 68 F250 4x4 frame and took all the brackets off it to put on my 72'. I have had the axle installed ready in a weekend which included new ujiont bushings. Wish I had some info for ya.

We are confident enough in our suppliers to offer our own exclusive one-year warranty on every F-250 front and rear leaf spring we sell. It seems there really wouldn't be a tremendous amount of fabrication like i've heard. Yes, tons of threads are about just this, converting 2wd to 4wd. All the adaptors we sale are made from steel. Fortunately, a leaf spring replacement is a simple job that can be done in any reasonably well-equipped home garage.
During this time, he quickly learned what were the best parts. The crew cab is actually pre-drilled for the leaf spring crossmember on the bottom. But ive always tossed around the idea of making the '69 a 4x4. Also, our heavy-duty F-250 leaf springs will last longer, making them especially useful in construction fleets and other applications where exposure to rough conditions is routine. That would be great, no one else has done this and posted the progress. It would be very useful, in extracting my '71 off the side of a course, and towing it back to the pits on the rough course, and, I just want a 4x4! Good luck Hope you find a donor truck to make your life easy.
I found a donor 68 F250 4x4 frame and took all the brackets off it to put on my 72'. I think I'd rather run coil springs up front as well. Buy a 4x4 its cheaper. This usually means finding replacement parts are hard to come by and when you do. In case I decide to do it myself.

Will have the alignment rechecked to make sure it is good. New shocks optional, leveling kit will install without new shocks. If get donor truck for front suspension.
I'd love to see pics of the progress of someone who has done this but it seems only a few people have ever done it.
