    It all depends on where you get the parts from. Your best bet is to find a totalled 4x4 that was hit in the rear.

    It would probably have been cheaper to buy the 4x4. How capable are you when it comes to working on vehicles?

    I think it would be too expensive. I'd rather drive the 4x2 for a while and since Taco's hold their value pretty well I would trade it in later for a 4x4 so your ride would be under warranty. As opposed to making a 4x2 a 4x4 and maybe something going wrong and not having it covered. In my opinion.

    ^That is the real question- Only a grand and a bit for the basic parts. But the cost to fabricate and install is going to be equal or more.

    welcome to TW! a conversion to 4x4 will be.... extremely expensive. a trade in would be cheaper and cause less headaches, plus you will be able to keep your factory warranty.

    unless of course you are one of those crazy mechanic/fabricator types, in which case, go nuts.

    post up some pics!

    I saw this same question a little while back. Chris4x4 said that the parts needed would be around $1,000. The real saver would be if you could do all the work yourself.
