I wouldn't do a thing to it. I would sell it and buy a 4.0 4x4 and work with that.in the long run the lost money between the sales (may be none if done provate party) will be less than the cost of trying to get the 2wd to a 4wd capability.

are you talking about the body work? You don't need a 4 inch lift and 33's to get the truck finished.
