You must do A LOT of fab work. Not something the average Joe can do. Best bet is to just trade the truck for something thats already 4wd. BTW you posted this is in the wrong section.

you could do a solid axle on the front. just need a transfer case and driveshafts. but you have to pretty much redo your entire front suspension for that.

Tcase, front axle(dana 30 or dana 44), yota steering box, coils or leafs, trans mods at the transshop, driveshafts, shifter through floor, etc.
