Re: 4wd Conversion

Yes, to my understanding it is all bolt on, all you need to do is find all the parts. I did not know till a couple of years ago, when a guy stopped me to talk about mine. His was a 2wd and I could not beleive it.

Re: 4wd Conversion

yup man, its all a bolt in job. only difference you might run into is a difference in the drive shaft flanges on the diffs and t/c. early models were smaller.

Re: 4wd Conversion

My '92 WAS a 2WD and now it is a 4WD. I had a donor '88 I used, pulled the transfer, front axle, front drive shaft, intermediate driveshaft, and HALF of the rear driveshaft. I used the rear section of the '92 driveshaft and just slid it in the front half of the '88's rear driveshaft. From start to finish(both vehicles) it took me 8 hours. I swore it was 4WD before, but now it's bonafide. Two things though (learned the hard way) check your u-joints while they are out(stiffness, play, etc.) and take the ball joint off'n the end WITHOUT the pitman. Your life will be so much easier! Good luck.
