    Yes, but it might not be worth it dollar wise.

    Rick (pray4surf) did it. If he doesn't have a build thread on here, he most likely does on TTORA. Find him and check his profile for the build thread, which I know he has. It may also be on customtacos. He went into great detail, with pics.

    yes its possible and has been done quite a few times..just not really documented here at TW.

    if you go to yotatech.com, pirate4x4 in the toyota section, or even TTORA you'll find a lot of great tech info and write ups on the conversion

    Lurk on places like TTORA where a lot of people do SAS swaps on their trucks. You can score the 4wd front end parts pretty cheap, and it would be a pretty easy swap as everything will just bolt in.

    Just did this on my double cab...pretty straight forward. Even from a cash perspective it was cheaper for me to do it than find a 4x4.
    As others have mentioned check ttora

    Gscott04 did it on his 2004 pre runner and it wasn't very complicated.
