Let the azz chewing start!

So ive been thinking about the path of my truck lately. I dont do sled pulls, I dont off road it much (havent had a front drive shaft in for months). So for the simplicity of it all Ive been thinking about doing a 2 wheel drive swap. I really just dont need 4x4 but i like my truck so i dont wanna sell it for a 2 wheel one

What about when it snows? I see two trucks in your sig so i guess you have another you can drive in the snow. 2wd will get you less $$ if you go to sell it at some point.

i dont wanna sell, but if i ditch the t case, front driveshaft, front axle, the off road front bumper(would be weird on a 2 wheel), and went to a DOT slick style tire in the rear i could probably lose all of 800lbs. Thats a lot of weight to lose for racing around

and yeah i have a few other trucks if its really bad out

Sounds like a good plan...... then you could do the skirt mod next.... Just kidding man. Wouldnt be my box of cookies but if thats what you wana do at least you can throw all those other parts at your other truck. Its as much or more work to go from four wheel to two, to do it right, as it is to go the other way..... Good luck.

Its going to cost more then its worth. Just put some different tires on the truck and lower it back down. Swap out the front bumper and be done.

Do you have to change the trans out if you dump the Tcase?

you can, or you can run a parking brake adapter which acts like a t case and will almost give you the same rear driveshaft length

I was thinking you would need a new trans. That would cost some cash for one in good shape. I guess its not to bad cost wise then. Good luck with it.
