    Finished my 4x4 swap a few minutes ago :D To everyone who said it couldnt be done and that it wouldn't be cost effective :brianr:

    $450: Transmission, Transfer Case, and front driveshaft
    $730: Front diff, cv's, front half of rear driveshaft
    $250: Gear Oil, new upper ball joints & misc. little pieces.

    Took all day with a lift and only two people to mount & balance 4 new tires, swap transmissions, then go to dinner and bolt the front end all up.

    Ill get more pictures tomorrow when its in use :p
