It would cost a fortune. Just sell the truck you current have, and get a 4 wheel drive. Tacoma's ( 2005 to current ) have a 4.0 6 cylinder. They have plenty of power. That would be the route to go. Hope I helped

If you have the money to do so go for it, but i'd just buy a 6 cylinder and lift her up.

Hi mesing with anything these days is not a possibility due to engfine managment systems. they have control of many parts of the car. the body module would need to be changed as well it is not like we are back in the 1970's when it was possible to muck about with engines and gearboxes.















these days it all has to be a matter of configuring the electronics as well.















do the sensible sell the truck and buy one with what you want.
