    I read on Wiki that I can convert my 2WD Prerunner 2002 4 Door TRD to 4WD with stock parts. I do not have the technical expertise to do this, but if I was to have a shop do it, approximately how much would it cost? And would it be worth it? Thanks!

    Sorry guys, my bad. My father handed the truck down to me, and he's the one that bought it with the TRD package and no 4WD. Which kinda was a wtf moment for me

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    No! j/k lol

    Yeah just trade it in like mentioned up above, too expensive and time consuming.

    In that case, of course you trade it in. Good luck with whatever you decide.

    I bought a TRD Offroad Prerunner...I wish I would've got the 4x4! I'm gonna convert mine to 4wd once its paid off...its cheaper than buying a whole new vehicle plus I really like my truck! I don't wanna get rid of it :)


    Sorry to chime in...i gotta 2nd gen. :sorry:
