SAS ? what does it take?

just thinking right now... i got an 87 ranger 2wd... what will it take to do a sas on my truck. what parts off of what trucks? i know it would be a good bit of work. i'm already going to put a 302 in it... i hope this year. i know i need a transfer case. but which transfer case I don't know. what front axle would i need. steering? suspension? and how much would i have to fab? does the axle need to be shortened? did i forget anything?

with a explorer tranny and 302 you could use your 1354 or you could jump to a 1356
