Sell it and buy a 4x4. No joke. It would be cheaper. The front IFS is totally different in a 4x4, even the front of the frame is different. NOTHING swaps over, and you would need an assload of custom fabrication.

You could always do a SFA.... but thats pricey also. 6-10k easy. Your best bet is selling and starting from scratch.

It's an ugly expensive job for somebody who has his own shop and does all the work himself. Getting somebody else to do it, it will probly cost you as much as buying 2 4x4's.
