it would be easier and cheaper to buy another truck. depends on your overall plans for having the 4WD, but the 2WD is quite capable in moderate off-roading situations.

its possible....

just find one of the same style.....engine, trans, transfer case.....and start swapping parts.
....drive shafts, steering links....the list goes on

then it boils down to what type of front axle you want....you want to keep the TTB off the donor truck or are you going SAS?
