Re: 85 6.2 2wd conversion to 4wd

you need a d44 or 10 bolt from a like truck, transfercase, drivelines fron t and rear.

chuck all the 2wd drive steering except for the steering box because youl use it to do a cross over steering.

leaf spring mounting points from the donar truck. should be to much fab work getn these to work on the 2wd drive frame.

you need lift leaf springs, id recomend not going any taller than 6"s

lots of other little doo dads like bolts and brake lines and stuff that youl figure out you needed ounce you get going.
