4x4 conversion

well i want to know if it will be possible. i know, i already read as many threads on people wanting converisons, but its always prerunner to 4x4. i have the 05 tacoma 5 lug, and want to convert it. i have some cousins who have the 06 tacoma v6 4x4. i want to know if i would be able to trade body parts with them to make mine 4x4 and theres into a 2wd? oh n probably have a shop do all my work or something like that.

Would i atleast be able to trade parts with someone of an older 4x4 tacoma, or maybe find a reg cab, 2.7l 4x4?

I only know about first gens not 2nd, but no the reason you can convert a prerunner
is because they are set up exactly the same as the 4x4,

I mean my shifter plate had an x where I was supposed to cut lol,

but I think there are some major differences with
the 5 lug 2wd, to v6 4x4, so everything would not be bolt on.
you could just take a look under there yourself to confirm... I believe its way to expensive to do the swap on a 2nd gen to make it worth it
instead f buying a 4x4
unlike the 1st gens..

Anything is possible, but I've never seen a 2wd to 4wd IFS conversion. The easiest way to do it is a solid axle swap (SAS). It's expensive and takes a lot to do it right. You might as well go and trade your taco against a 4x4.

yeah i do want to trade it in for a 2nd gen 4x4 tacoma, but i wouldnt have to money to pay for it. the reason y i only want their part is because they bought that tacoma used, and i had mine brand spanking new, 0 miles. so if it was possible i just want to trade parts, since they know nothing about off roading.

No way you can interchange parts between your 5 lug and their 6 lug.

I'm sure a shop would love to do this for you, because if they know what they're doing, they'll charge you about 15+ grand to swap the parts over. Which most likely would include the frame.

Here's a suggestion:
Why not just trade your cousin your truck for their truck? Or let them drive your truck and they let you drive their truck and call it even.
