Cost me roughly $2000 to do my conversion. That was IFS though, SAS will be more.

Did that include the lift and everything? Or was that just stock parts?

there is no "kit" to convert to 4x4, buying alot of different parts from alot of different vehicles is the name of the game

check out 0RangerEdge2 truck, we did a 4x4 swap on his

Jake, do you have 3.0 or a 4.0? If you answer 3.0 please head directly to auto trader, craigslist, or your local dealership.
