Black 4 door PreRunner 4wd conversion

My truck is going to take a while to finish. Im a high school student so i cant have a job during school with the sports i play. i have a job in the summer so thats when i can do all of my mods. Being a lifeguard doesn't pay good at all either, so it will just take that much longer to finish my truck.

How she sits as of June 10, 2011


Stock Photos. It came with a camper shell, but i took it off before i got a picture with it on.






7" touch screen head unit. Ignore the stickers


Action shot of me muddin


This is a picture of the recent snow we just had. I'm 6'1" and the snow comes up to my knees.


My truck in the garage cause it was raining and i was putting on the tow package


When i was putting my tow package on i noticed my leafs are sagging



My tow package


After


After goin mudding and pulling out my friends GMC 1500.






Bed lined my rocker panels, lower tailgate, front and rear bumper, and fender flares


My bed sorter. I should really use it since i built it. Everything has a place, but i guess im too lazy to put it in its right place. In these pictures are golf clubs, tackle box, rod and reel, 4 way, chain, chest waders, and hip waders. They all fit nicely.




I have this trailer that is perfect size for my 4 wheeler and i use it alot, so i thought to make it look at little better. I painted my trailer rims black


Then i flipped the U bolts on the trailer to raise it up to a level height


I really need to buy some bigger rims and tires for it, it just looks goofy now


Did the fog light mod. The fog lights are actually pretty bright. I went and picked up clear lights for the fog lights.


Added about 5 hp


Some stock flexin



This is my dads truck

The last two pictures are of a frequent member on this site. If I remember correctly he is selling his tube bumper for a plate bumper? I could be wrong.

Anyway, I do like the truck. Before I do anything eles I would clean your interior and engine bay and give the truck a wash. I remember the old days of highschool, my buddies all were dying to fill the backseat with subs. I personally was never into cranking Lil Wayne, that is an impressive set up though.

Its a great start, I have always wished I had purchased a double cab.

Welcome to the site, may the modding begin!

Does anybody know about how much it would cost to put 4 wheel drive in my truck? i know it would cost less than normal since i have the 4 wheel drive suspension that came with the PreRunner package. My mom said it would be about $1500, but i would rather have a better opinion than that

you would need a transfer case, front diff, axles, transmission from a 4wd, a few other small things here and there, its more trouble than its worth sometimes. a good rear differential locker witll get you out of some hairy situtations.

i can get through alot as of right now. but i live in kansas where we just got rid of 2 foot of snow and my truck didnt do to well in the snow. my mom has a toyota sequoia and when it was in 4 wheel drive it did just fine. so im thinkin that 4 wheel drive would do me alot of good cause im a junior in high school and when i go to college i will be driving back and forth on the weekends from college back to home and if a snow storm hits ill be screwed.

With the amount of work and money involved, i think you would be better off selling your truck and buying one that was 4x4 from the factory.

either sell truck or trade in for 4x4 because doing the conversion will be hell... or a less expensive alternative to extra traction would be a rear locker which has already been suggested.
