Question 2x4 to 4x4 ?

I am sure that this would be way too complicated, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask. I found the EXACT truck I was looking for down to every last detail short of the fact that it is 2wd. Is it possible to make it 4wd? What would I have to do? About how much would it cost? The truck is a 99 F-550 crew cab dually

Probably be cheaper to keep looking for a 4x4. You'd need a dana 50/60, transfer case, radius arms, leaf springs, drive shaft front and probably a shorter rear shaft. Guessing it would be between 3-5k.

Yeah, together with the purchase price and conversion, it would cost you more than finding a 4wd.

depends on how good a deal you gettin on the 2x4. unless you get it done by a pro or your a pro. it would be better to keep looking for a 4x4. otherwise youll always have trouble w/it and to get it done by a pro..... you could probably get the parts from a junkyard...the diff. tran. case and most the front end. but to put it all together is gonna take some labor costs. if u wanna go bran new 3-5 is probaby right u do it yourself and get your parts from a wrecking yard....your prob looking at 1-2. and alot of time.
