    20s installed. If the this south GA weather will ever make up its mind I will have more pics of the 20s up

    Next will be a pelfreybilt front bumper, with rigid industry's 20" bar and duallys.

    Then the process of 4wd conversion will commence. I have 2 years to get all the parts. Like to convert once the truck is paid for.

    Thank you!!
    Lol believe it or not I already have looked at your build! I was looking into 4x4 conversions and you commented on a build that was linked. I like seeing other prerunners heavily modded you have a good looking truck man! I have awhile before I start but I plan on doing one as long as nothing changes. I want to get her paid off first but that also give me time to find parts and make sure if that is really the route I want to take! And I have no idea on the cost I know from what I have seen its around 3k to 8k depending if you do the labor and what parts you get. I got I find a place or people that can pull it off for cheap or even be willing.

    Thanks. It's coming along pretty well. I still need to get some cleaner looking wheels to go with some beefier tires. I'll most likely end up selling my truck and getting a 4x4 TRD before I ever attempt a conversion. It's more of a pipe dream at this point lol. I look forward to seeing changes in your truck. Have you considered Black Headlight Mod or Satoshi?

    Yeah I have to say that I will probably end up doing the same. It sounds good on here to say I am going to try but I probably will pay it off an see where I am at. The stealership want offer much because they know they can turn around and sell for a mega profit so
    I will probably sell mine. But I love my truck 2wd and all lol but my headlights have started to crack so I going to just get new ones. I have a satoshed grill now.

    Hey have you started to look into this 4x4 conversion? The big parts are not hard to find, it's the misc nuts, bolts, washers that are where I know I am going to get hung up on. Where you going to do the install or was there a shop near that you knew would try to. There is no where near me that I can think of that will even try.

    I haven't even thought about all the parts I need to do something like that. I'm starting college in the fall and have about $1200 saved up from working this summer. I decided that its probably best that I use that money for college needs rather than a 4x4 conversion. As far as shops go, you'll probably have to pay a reputable shop to do top notch work. Doing the conversion install is not something I would skimp on. If you can do it yourself always have a couple extra set of eyes and hands to make sure you don't miss a thing.
