Did a bit of research. Dana 60 and 4" lift to clear cross member

the cubes are not very sturdy. After all the work of converting to 4x4 I doubt youd get more then three tub runs in it before its starts to fall aaprt

If you framed in the back and made it solid with a side entry it would be considerably more solid

That's what I'd be worried about. Longevity. I don't think 4x4 conversion would be worth it. Just whisky throttle! Could box the back in a bit. Would need to get quads in there still

Not sure if you could get a quad in them. Would be more durable though

downsides would be wide as fuck. height clearance for low hanging trees

the aluminum skins could get sliced open on sharp trees or rocks hanging onto narrow ass fsr roads. Most of the quality cube boxes are glued and riveted so even if the rivets became loose , the panels are still glued to the wall studs. you could cross brace up the walls and do a dana 60 swap from a dually and run a divorced t-case. You could run ford dodge or chevy d60 if you ran a divorced case depending on which side the front drive shaft drops.

most importantly you could haul a lot of sloots and tinnys in the back

Sea sluts and dingys...... I'm liking this thread

I guess if your not whisky throttle down the fsr it may hold up

not every cube van is watertight. buddy rented one for the move and boxes & mattress in corner got soggy. preferrably start with watertight roof on cube van and then stuff in the sluts
