4x4 upgrade

Post by ThomasS »

Just curious if anyone else in the group has done a 4x4 upgrade on their B190. I have and love the way it looks and drives now. I just finished the addition of rear airbags(airlift 5000) and what a difference! No heavy sway in turns, no wind tilt, nothing! Feels like Im driving an empty non camper van.

A guy in San Diego.
I have his contact if you need it.
He is called “Cuervo 4x4” and did hundreds of 4x4 conversions. Look him up on YouTube. He’s done some amazing work.

Did you have that done? I feel like I've seen pictures of one that is very similar.

Been considering doing the same but have been told it'll increase the strain on my engine and transmission and that it may not be worth it. Reached out to a reputable local conversion company who quoted me at $14.5K for the conversion. Did you do any upgrades to the engine and/or transmission to make sure it can take the increased load?
