i have'nt seen any, does'nt mean someone might not be casting them though. 

there are a couple of 4x4 van kits i think amt put out (fords)

instead of breaking up a super expensive kit, go to BNL resin

http://www.b-n-lresins.com/

he has everything you need to go 4by

i did the amt "custom van" as a 4by conversion, just did 2 trucks from 2wd to 4wd, there not hard at all. you will have to figure out your own steering gear & make room for a t-case. depending on how high your going, you might have to make custom front springs, the vans don't have a lot of frame in front of the tires 

 

there ya go!^^^^ rairoresins

Awesome!  The plan is to take salvageable parts from an old paint/glue-bombed and impossibly unstrippable Open Road Camper kit and 4X4 it to the rest of the new kit.  Might give it a two inch lift or so. Nothing wild but hopefully super-snazzy in the end.

You could buy the new amt f350 for its 4x4 parts

Still working on a lot of 25th scale stuff here and there. Won't be able to go full speed until after an AMPS show in early April.
