      what transfer case are you planning at? electronic or manual?

      what is the budget? not everyone can do this job. be very carefull on this.

      also please do post your introduction so that people get to know you on the forum as well.

      I guess you meant 4x2 to 4x4.

      Can be done but all the differentials and stability has to be rechecked and lots more come into picture.. IIRC Godfather was on a project to convertSafari 4x2 to 4x4

      4x4s are not invincible. Spending few lakhs and making it 4x4 doesn't give it wings. Personally I would say such a conversion is not recommended (may void warranty, quality not guaranteed and resale value might be affected), unless you're keen to experiment or desperate for 4x4.

      Sell it and buy a new 4x4 SUV instead
