Well when it use to be fully functioning 4x4 and he kept breaking cv's, why not just make it 2wd? A prerunner is better if it's 2wd anyways. He never needs 4x4 for what he does with this truck. It was already done up pretty good so why start over again with a 2wd when this one will work fine?? He also has a 4x4 trail type truck.

I agree 150 percent! Some people think lowering a 4wd is a waste of a good truck, some people say lifting a 2wd truck is a waste.... Ill bet there are some of each on this site... Anyone flaming them for it?

Is he going to pull the front diff and tcase out? Seems like a good way to shed a few pounds.

Well would I need the 4wd hub assembly if I changed? Or can I just bolt on the 4wd knuckles and be fine?

you'll need the hub/bearing assy as well as at least the CV stubs he's running. and you'll need rotors.

Seriously, someone delete this thread. This is just getting old now. People are attacking him for his work, and who knows if it's his first time or not. Can't anyone give constructive criticism?

Sorry for posting higher res pics. If I woulda know you guys were going to do this I wouldn't have wasted my time.

The point of posting on a forum is to get criticism, whether it is positive or negative. My constructive criticism: Start over, dont try to extend the factory parts, dont leave main structural plates unwelded
