    I found an 87 GMC R1500 2WD for 1500 or less. Fantastic shape, good mileage, not sure of the engine yet, but an easy swap due to truck age. Just wondering if a 4WD conversation is a feasible option. Especially considering the great price. The guy is selling it so cheap to pay for a new tranny for his actual work vehicle and needs the money to fix it. What do you guys think? Is it worth the price or should I keep looking? I really want a 4x4 diesel, but for the price is it worth messing with?

    Convert to 4x4?....In a word....NO, it isnt an easy swap....4x4s have a totally different frame, different floor in the cab. Keep looking for your 4x4. You could buy this and flip it to make some money
