They were available on all the rigs, up to about '70. I know a guy with two 4x4 IFS wags for sale if interested...

OMG, I'm SOOO glad mine doesn't have that! That looks like a nightmare. How many factory special tools would it take to rebuild that front end? ugh...

From what I remember that system was only used for a few years.
The 2WD system in the illustration was used into the '65 model.
Did anybody notice the lack of leaf springs. The system used torsion bars.
