I have no clue, but I don't see why not. The only thing I can thing of is that the axle might not be as wide as the truck axles?

not really.... the rear axle will be a bit wider than a truck....not sure if the spring perches are in the same place either... you can use 2wd van lower control arms to lower your front 2-3 inches though  :hello:

If only we were a little closer.  :13:

Friday should be fun. I'm helping a buddy slam a built 360 into an old Valiant (I believe).

i think the axles and leafs from a van would work with a truck but i don't know if there would be much point swapping with one unless yours has gone bad. they use all the same brake parts. the 250 vans are pretty much just heavy half tons.
