With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Search on TTORA.com. There are a bunch of guys that did the swap, and a few did it pretty cheap.

The amount of ass ache, time and money, you would have been ahead of the game just to go out and buy a 4x4.

There is a couple of guys on TTORA that did the swap for about 1k. Plus, it gives you the freedom to use a manual transfercae, as opposed to the electric one. Why Toyota went away from the manual trans is beyond me. :-(

What are the advantages of having a manual transer case?

IFS eliminator kit is for a SAS

You would need
  • new transfer case
  • new drive shaft
  • new front assembly
  • new front axles
