Hi guys. Thanks for letting me join :celebrate: I have a 2007 hilux d4d love it. Never given me a days trouble. I would like to find out if someone can do a conversion from me from 2x4 to a 4x4 on it. Just that we go to Mozambique a bit more now it has made it a few times but dose get stuck when there is some traffic in the thick sand.
Many thanks for your help

Welcome Johnathan! :thumbup:

Yes it is possible to do a conversion, but it's my contention that it far easier and less costly to sell that one and buy a 4x4 model. Your re-sale will also be better with an OEM 4x4 model than with a converted one.
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.
