Next will be a pelfreybilt front bumper, with rigid industry's 20" bar and duallys.

Then the process of 4wd conversion will commence. I have 2 years to get all the parts. Like to convert once the truck is paid for.

I'll be doing the same thing down the road. How much exactly is it going to run you?

Thank you!!
Lol believe it or not I already have looked at your build! I was looking into 4x4 conversions and you commented on a build that was linked. I like seeing other prerunners heavily modded you have a good looking truck man! I have awhile before I start but I plan on doing one as long as nothing changes. I want to get her paid off first but that also give me time to find parts and make sure if that is really the route I want to take! And I have no idea on the cost I know from what I have seen its around 3k to 8k depending if you do the labor and what parts you get. I got I find a place or people that can pull it off for cheap or even be willing.

Thanks. It's coming along pretty well. I still need to get some cleaner looking wheels to go with some beefier tires. I'll most likely end up selling my truck and getting a 4x4 TRD before I ever attempt a conversion. It's more of a pipe dream at this point lol. I look forward to seeing changes in your truck. Have you considered Black Headlight Mod or Satoshi?

Yeah I have to say that I will probably end up doing the same. It sounds good on here to say I am going to try but I probably will pay it off an see where I am at. The stealership want offer much because they know they can turn around and sell for a mega profit so
I will probably sell mine. But I love my truck 2wd and all lol but my headlights have started to crack so I going to just get new ones. I have a satoshed grill now.

Hey have you started to look into this 4x4 conversion? The big parts are not hard to find, it's the misc nuts, bolts, washers that are where I know I am going to get hung up on. Where you going to do the install or was there a shop near that you knew would try to. There is no where near me that I can think of that will even try.

I haven't even thought about all the parts I need to do something like that. I'm starting college in the fall and have about $1200 saved up from working this summer. I decided that its probably best that I use that money for college needs rather than a 4x4 conversion. As far as shops go, you'll probably have to pay a reputable shop to do top notch work. Doing the conversion install is not something I would skimp on. If you can do it yourself always have a couple extra set of eyes and hands to make sure you don't miss a thing.
