G scotts PreRunner(soon4x4)

I've had my truck for just over a year now, and recently I decided
to commit to the project of converting it 4x4.

What I've done so far

  • Falken Rocky mts 265/75/r16
  • OME coilovers
  • Rear 5100's
  • Home made Rear Bumper
  • Home made Spare carrier
  • Debadged
  • Recessed Grill
  • Color matched lower valance
  • Painted wheels black
  • Red Guage lights
  • New radio
  • Flowmaster 40
  • Exhaust cut before axle
  • Deckplate
  • K&N filter
  • Swapped output shafts









(thanks Brian)

But I could always take a few more pics If there is anything else you want to see?

And now for the 4x4 conversion!!

This is what I need to do the project..

  • Output shaft swap (installed)
  • Transfer case (installed)
  • Front Drive shaft (check)
  • Rear Drive shaft (installed)
  • Front differential
  • Spindles
  • Manual Hubs
  • CV axles
  • Shifter (installed)
  • Floor shifter plate (cut and installed)
  • Interior plastics
  • Speed sensor? (installed)
  • Crossmember piece (installed)



Update:

Disconnecting sensors and shifter linkage..




Removed the driveshafts



Dropped the transmission out (finally, took all day) and removed the torque converter


Torque converter



Empty under there.. and the big ass gear


2wd transmission cross member




Removed bell housing, pan and valve body



Removed the rest of the internal parts



empty tranny..


the guts of the automatic..



2wd tail housing and output shaft


4wd shaft installed in my transmission



reinstalled all the internals, new filter, and cleaned up the seal of the old pink sealant



scraping it off of the pan..



pulled out the seats for easy access, and cleaned it up! then pulled the shifter out.


can't determine why there are no freakin speed sensors in the 4wds so i have to buy one to go where this plug was


extending the wires for the speed sensor



installed the bell housing



all ready to go back into the truck







And after Sorting out the speed sensor, which fixed my shifting,

The final problem was that my fuse for the gauges was blown!!!
me and brian think it shorted when he cut the wires..
so disconnect your battery!!


But now the transfer case is installed on my truck,
and Everything works perfect

NOw I just need to find a front diff, cv's and hubs.

sweet! good luck. My truck keeps having problems with the 4wd so I'm thinking a manual 4wd instead of a switch would be a good idea..

You think that would be possible? I'm only asking because you are converting to 4x4 and i've never heard of anyone else doing this. kinda similar to what I'd like to do

Yeah we gotta get a few guys to get out there and help you out!!

and thanks! Tricity transmission quoted me 200 to open up the tranny
take a look and then reseal it with a new filter and stuff, and tell me what the deal is with the transmission.
not sure If I want to do that or not.. or do it ourselves?

just look over the service manual when you get it, it labels all the parts and pretty much shows you diagrams of everything so its fairly straight forward
