I have done this on my 99 XLT. Unfortunately you have to use a 4wd frame. The best way is to buy a rolled 4wd and put your body on that frame but then you have to change the wiring harnesses under the hood and behind the dash. Was it worth it? I think so.

If you have an EDGE Ranger, it wouldn't be so bad. PM 04EDGE, he has converted his 2wd 3.0 EDGE to a 4wd...

Cost depends on what kind of deals you get for the parts you need,and how much of the work you do yourself. Your looking at anywhere between 3-5k .If you need to do this then its time for a sas. I've converted a couple of older Rangers to 4wd and sas on my 01. I say go for it but thats me.Good luck
