    I don't know of such kit you speak of ? You would be money ahead to trade it in and get what you want. Good luck. :eek:

    There is no kit per-se... you might want to check out TTORA.com and search various threads there. A lot of people have done conversions there. BTW, it ain't cheap either.

    best and cheapest thing would be SAS swap it, cheaper than trying to get the factory 4x4 parts in the long run... then just get 4x4 trans/transfer rear driveshaft/custom front driveshaft here is a VERY BASIC list

    IFS steering box (88-94)

    dana 44 driver side drop (jeep wagoneer or j10) make sure it is narrow 51" backing plate to backing plate...there is one that is like 4" wider

    leaf springs or coils,if you go with coild there is alot more to making the links and such

    and then the obvious shocks,brakelines, etc I actually have an entire front clip that is SAS'd with the steering box attached and I have the jeep dana 44 lol you would be miles ahead

    ifs box is about $75-100 at junkyard depending, springs can be had for $200 or so ,shocks can be $20-whatever a piece depending on what you go for, I took the factory jeep driveshaft and had it lengthened for $50 dana44 $200 or so and I'm not sure of the difference between the 2wd trans or 4wd you may just need a 4x4 transfer and rear drivshaft.... spring hangers can be fabbed up for free or you can get a shop to make them for like $30 a pair... lowered truck shops are the best price it seems... pick up a issue of sport trucks or something like that there is tons of ads... I'm looking to get $200 for my front axle and would sell the entire front clip that has hangers,box and the bushings in it for $150
