Re: 2wd to 4wd
The easiest way is to get a 4wd truck. The changeover would be a major process, probably more trouble than its worth.
The tranny will probably need a different tailshaft. You'll need a transfer case and crossmember. Don't forget a front axle and driveshaft. Plus you'll need all of the shackle mounts, springs and such. I believe 2wd trucks have a slightly different floor pan as well, so you'll be needing to cut and bang that out of the way. The exhaust is probably going to be in the way too, depending on where the crossover is.
If it were me, I'd just go find a 4wd truck.
