Hey guys,

Haven't really thought about this too much, however, anyone done a 4X4 conversion with raised suspension to these cars?

Would be interesting to do it... bigger tyres, raised the car and change the diff, trans, front axel to a 4x4 setup..

Any ideas?

The territory front k-frame, transfer case, front diff, suspension and transmission would all bolt in.

Ride: 5.0 AU's and 5.0 Maverick

Power: 139 rwkw

Location: Sydney West
NSW, Australia

The territory setup is all wheel drive , not four wheel drive.
There is a difference.
Best bet would be to see what chassis the AU would fit on but then you will have lots of fun getting it passed due to having Airbags etc.

Based on that fact my Mum is the best around!

In Qld, if the rules haven't changed....if you put an AU body on a Hilux chassis, it will be rego'd as a Hilux.....that was about 10 years ago, though.
