I would also suggest selling the truck and buying a 4x4.

It always looks simple. All you gotta do is slap an axle and a transfer case under the truck and you'll be slinging mud in no time…..not! Even if you swap bodies, its a lot more work than it looks and it ends up costing more to do the swap than the value of a truck already equipped with 4wd.

Don't believe it? Start pricing out parts… Look for donor chassis too….then add in the fact that those used parts you buy will probably need to be either rebuilt, and or refreshed. Things like regearing axles, rebuilding or upgrading brakes, fabricating suspension components, building shift linkages, cutting and welding, buying tires and rims and a ton more things I could mention…..All that stuff costs time and money (You can easily spend hundreds, if not thousands of $$$) and in the end, you'll likely spend more than if you just sold the truck, and used the money towards a 4x4
