2WD to 4WD

has anyone done a front axle swap into a 2WD 3/4 ton chassis? I have an 85 in great shape, and wondered what the hassle would be to swap in a solid front axle. I know the front crossmember is different, but can that be used?

Re: 2WD to 4WD

Find an old rusted out 4wd truck, strip it down to the frame rails, paint/coat it and swap all your goodies into/on it. Will need a few odds and ends, but that's the cheapest, easiest way imho.
