the WINDSTAR. . . I do not THINK it shares a chassis with anything else, but I would not be surprised to find out I was wrong on that.

I heard the Aero Star shared a chassis with the ranger, but not sure how true that is.

So if I bought a AWD Aero-Star I could use a Ranger lift kit and have a COOL Aerostar? SWEET !

I think i read the Windstar a platform with a Taurus .......They are almost dinosaurs up here as the rust issues on the rear suspension caused a Ford buyback program....I don't think any sort of fooling with the suspension is prudent now lol...especially as it is hard to lift the Front Wheel Drive..

Mounting the body on a pickup frame may be the way to go..
