There is alot of work involved in swapping a 2x to a 4x. you need to get the drivelines probably gonna have to have the rear lengthened or another one, crossmemebers, all the front running gear and probably the rear, springs, steering (complete), I know I am forgetting stuff here but it gives you an idea, also you will have to be able to fab some things up yourself. good luck with the project if you decide to do this. I know I enjoyed my luv when I did this, but it was way more work then I thought it would be but then I was only 17 at the time.
