tracker 2wd to 4wd conversion

I just picked up a 94 Tracker 2wd because it had a removable hard top, and was wondering how hard it would be to make it 4wd? I'm thinking all I need is a front axle, transfer case, front and rear driveshafts, and shifter. (I have a source for parts).

It is do able, but it is not easy. If you have another for parts it is much easier. you may think about swapping bodies, may be easier? I don't know for sure without looking it up but, the rear axle may have to be swapped. I don't think the ratio's are the same as the 4WD. The transfer case does not bolt up to the 2WD trans without replacing the rear shaft w/a 4WD one, so a 4WD trans complete would be easier. There are probably a hundred small items you will encounter, like the hole for the T/C lever. Yes, it can be done, but personally I would spend my time on a different project.

Put a divorced shaft from tranny to sammy t-case with yota or waggy 44's on leaf springs front and rear. Instead of making the ifs 4 wheel, it would work a lot better and be cool.

Ok, I guess i'll just sell the 2wd, cause I bought another 4wd last weekend. Its a '96 with the 16V engine, 5 speed. runs great, but needs a clutch.

the clutches are cheap 100 bucks. Also if the 96 doesent have one keep the hard top.

I've already replaced the white rag top with the black hard top on the 96. I'm also using miscellaneous parts to spruce up my 89 tracker.
