i would almost guarantee you that someone would trade you on here......you will decrease the value of your truck by almost half.......

you could make it a 2wd edge real easy......since the Edge's have the same suspension as your truck without the diff....

A prerunner in Ohio seems a litle out of place...

Your best bet would definitely be to sell the truck and buy a 2wd. You'd get a good chunk of money out of it instead of putting a lot of money into it.

they make long travel kits for 4wds. true pre runners are 2wd, but there are lots of 4wds dune hoppers out there now. spend the money you would makin it a 2wd, and get a new suspension kit.
