    I was going to do that if I got a pre-runner. There is a thread about it on TTORA and there might of been one on here but I don't recall.

    If you do all the labor, then the parts is all you need.

    Bingo. If you source the parts from junk yards, it should fall around 1500 bucks. Plus, you can use the manual T-case from an FJ.

    The manual T-case is a GREAT idea!!

    My buddy did a 4x4 swap on his F250 power stroke. I know it's nothing like a Tacoma, but he came out pretty good. He bought a totaled Excursion for $800 and used all of the 4x4 parts and then sold his stock parts. He also took the Excursion to the junk yard when he was done and got $ for it. He ended up coming out spending a lot less than everyone was expecting. I think it was <$2000.
