Well once you swap in a solid axle, you can change the transmission to a 4wd one, add a transfer case, and it would be 4wd.Wouldn't it be a little silly in a 2wd 4 banger? I guess so is the lift spindles I have been looking at in the scheme of things.
Theres a lot of solid axle toyotas running around with the 22re 4 banger. The yota guys call them the 4 squirrels of fury lol. A lot of them have a lot lower axle gearing, and dual transfer cases.
They seem to do pretty good, theyre super light with the little engines and float over everything. And they get awesome gas mileage for lifted trucks.
Theyre just the slowest things on the trail. Lol.
