    Has anyone ever tried to convert a 4x2 into a 4x4 on a W/D350 series dodge truck?? I have found a very clean 93 2wd xcab dually for cheap. NTM it has everything I've always wanted other than 4x4. This truck as a 4x4 is almost impossible to find in tis kind of condition without spending $10K.....

    I think all I would need is a 4x4 donour truck for the front end springs steering componets. trans and transfercase. I might even put the front end on with a 4" lift and leave it as a 2wd and run some 22.5 buds.

    You will spend way more money and time converting it than it's worth. But, it would be a fun project, and it's tough to put a value on that.

    I used to always jump into projects like this. Once in a while I would save a few bucks, once in a while I wouldn't. EVERY TIME I would throw time into a project when I should have been putting that time into running my business.

    Just go get yourself a Dana 60 Steer axle from a Ford or a Dodge, and a(271?) transfercase. You can get aftermarket springs. No need to change trannys with an adapter plate. Unless you want a different tranny? Cummins Allisons are becoming very popular iwth the new stand alone controller boxes. A donor truck isn't really necessary.
