No, the 2WD's have an engine crossmember that the axle won't clear unless you get at least a 6" lift. (Basically 6" lift leaf springs)
You could cut the crossmember, but it's not advised since that is structural to the front section of the frame
Even then nothing is bolt on. The frame widths are different too. There is a lot of fabrication involved
