Question Converting the electric 4WD to a stick ??

Hi
I intend to buy a new tacoma and i'm a big fan for this truck
And i think it's completly perfect except one thing onlt !!
The electric 4wd system
So i'm wonder if there is any way to convert it to a stick
Currently i drive a fj cruiser 6MT and i'm happy with it but i want get a truck
And the only thing hesitate is what i mention here
So can just swap the fj cruiser T case to the tacoma or what is the way to do ?

Thanks

It might be a little difficult since you have a MT. The MT FJs have full time 4wd.

I have seen couple of thread here installed the fj cruiser T-case
Do you think guys it's possible to make the tacoma full time 4WD like the fj
I'm thinking also about installing the fj cruiser front diff and axels to make the tacoma completly like the 6MT fj cruiser

It would be allot of work. The auto isn't as daunting of a switch because the transfer cases are the same. I don't know how it will be with the mt.

Here is a thread for a guy installed the fj T-case on his 6MT

http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/gar...ed-manual.html

But i don't know if i can make it completly like the manual fj cruiser (full time 4WD)
Or just make like the on the thread
