Hey guys,

As some of you are aware, i'm looking for an OKA, preferably a dual cab, so i don't have to buy a module etc. But i have found a rare (so i hear) 2WD OKA with a 6.5 Chev diesel in it.

How hard would it be to convert to 4WD? Is it just a matter of changing the front housing to one with a diff, a transfer case and associated parts, lever etc and free wheeling hubs?

Just wondering if it would be worth the trouble, as it's also a bus configuration and would need to chop or sell it and buy the module and tray.

Hi Moose,it 's all related to the asking price and what was altered to fit the V8,by the time you get a decent Dana 60,transfer case (assuming the original gearbox was kept) Linkages ,cross members,hand brake bits,tail and front prop shafts I doubt that you will have any change of 10 thou and that is a conservative figure....It can be done but is only money!!!

I remember Robbin talking about some 2WD OKAs and he said they wernt worth much but that was a few yeasr back. I would sugest you talk to him or Allen.

Advertised for $27,500. But the add is old and not sure if they still want to sell it. Have been told they would maybe let it go for about $15K.

I'm not keen on it anymore, too much work to do mechanically and to get it to what i want. Not keen on the engine either, duramax would be the best engine transplant, followed by either a Cummins 4BT or 6BT if it would fit, my opinion only though
