I really want to see someone finally pull this off. Lots of people have talked about adding 4wd using bolt-on parts taken from another parts truck but has anyone pulled the trigger and moved forward with it? Labor would be the biggest variable. If you can do it yourself, your truck will end up being laid up for a decent amount of time or if you pay someone, it'll be expensive but probably a lot quicker.
problem here is
People with access to tons of 4x4 parts are here in New England but,,,,, if you are in New England then you most likely drive 4x4 already. (unless you are some odd case )
Those who bought 2wd in NE most likely will go to solid axle anyway.
There are people with know how and access to parts in other sections of US but those most likely will go to solid axle anyway (if they did not purchase 4x4 to start with).
So that leaves us with people that have 2wd and have no means/knowledge of doing conversion even so they would like to.
