    1st gen4x4 to AWD?

    1985 1st gen s10 4x4...

    how can this be done?
    i think all you need is a new transfer case and a new front diff...
    has anybody done this?

    how much is this going to cost?

    or can you lay the frame w/ 4x4? or do u need to convert to awd/2wD?

    how much would it cost to convert to 2wd/and or awd?

    thanks
    sean

    p.s.... for bags? do i need to convert to awd or 2wd?

    4x4 to AWD is a transfer case. you want acheap AWD put your 4x4 in 4x4 high and remove the handle

    can you lay the frame w/ 4x4? or do u need to convert to awd/2wD?

    4x4 and AWD arent much dif.

    you do the customizing of brackets and a 4x4 will lay

    NSane- first off, you need to realize that 4x4 and AWD are related and that 2wd is completely different, at least lowering and suspension wise.. Anyways, a Bravada and Astro van T-Case is almost identical to a 4x4 transfer case, so yes it can be done. you can lay frame with a 4x4/awd but it requires special brackets and modifications to the suspension, as for cost, check out a junkyard, i'd have no idea
