Has any one done this?
I have a 1998 IFS and want to try and convert it to the facelift.
I live at the coast and just bought this vehicle but the rust got the better of it,and that is why i was thinking of the mod.

But why?????

The day that you want to sell, I would not touch it, thinking: It has been in an accident!
'02 KZ 'Lux. Cooled. Chipped. Onca'd. Cherished!

If you are a diesel fan, raise your hand.
If you aren't raising your hand, raise your standards!

A 4x4 is merely a machine that enables you to get stuck further away from civilization.
