4x4 conversion

Asked by Jan 07, 2016 at 03:59 PM about the 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Ext Cab Long Bed 2WD

Question type: Car Customization

So I have a 2005 chevy silverado 2wd, its close to
payed off. I am wanting to make it 4wd. I have a 93
gmc yukon the motor needs head gaskets but
tranny n t case are there with what parts I think I
would need. My question is will the trans case and
tranny fit the 05 motor and bolt up? I understand I
have to cut a arms n all the front suspension out.
Would really like to be able to use the yukon parts
because there free I alredy have them. Thanks in
advance. My truck is 5.3 also.

The conversion will cost you a ton and endless headaches and won't be as good as a factory 4x4 when you are done. Sell the 2wd and buy a good used 4x4 is my advice.

The trans won't work, it's not compatable with your computer. Also the front of a 4x4 and 2wd are totally different down to the frame. Not to mention you have 2 different trucks entirely. The only thing you can carry over from the 93 are the Wheels and tires. Your better off solid axle swapping it.

It would be easier to swap your 5.3 into the yukon, lol
