2WD to 4WD?

I read on Wiki that I can convert my 2WD Prerunner 2002 4 Door TRD to 4WD with stock parts. I do not have the technical expertise to do this, but if I was to have a shop do it, approximately how much would it cost? And would it be worth it? Thanks!

Buy a 4wd truck. A shop will charge you a shit load. Also do some searching:

In that case, of course you trade it in. Good luck with whatever you decide.

If you already have manual it will be easier. You're probably looking around $2k minimum. There's a lot of guys that didn't have the know-how but learned how to do it.
