Welcome Ziggy! :thumbup:

The short answer is usually no. Of course it's very possible and spares required are easily available but it's the cost of those spares (you won't always be able to source good 2nd hand parts) and of course the labour and down time involved.

By far more often than not, it's a better option to sell the standard 2x4 and buy a good 4x4, than the cost of converting. :winkx:
