not worth it at all. might aswell sell it and spend a few extra thousand and get a 4X4. the amount of money and work/parts just isnt worth it.

yeah man, the $$ u'd spend on a transfer case, new front axle and labor and everything else would cost more than its worth. like this guy ^^^ said, if u need/really want 4wd, ur most logical road is to sell the prerunner and grab a new or used 4x4

First, how mechanically inclined are you, and is there a $$$ limit to what you are willing to spend?

damn.. i got my tacoma for free last year from my brother, and i already spent a lot of money on after market part. the only reason i did that because i talked to a guy and he said i could get the parts to make a 4x4 for around 1500.

deff kinda low, it was just a rough throwing up of numbers to give the op an idea of how much it would be. The 1500 the OP was quoted wouldnt even cover labor at any respecting shop.

And not to mention he would need a 4x4 wiring harness, and would have to buy all the shit to make it work.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

You don't need a 4x4 harness. The first gens are very easy to convert.

i did this 4x2 to 4x4 swap where i sold my 05 prerunner non trd or sport with 130k miles for 15k and bought an 05 trd sport 4x4 with 80k miles for 3 grand more. . . i think it was worth it for sure
