    4. 4wd shorter tailshaft
    5. Shorter adapter for transmission to T-Case
    6. Cross Member tranny mount
    7. 4wd shifter
    8. 4wd shifter cable
    9. Tail housing

    I think it's a noble effort, but wouldn't it just be cheaper to sell your 2wd Jeep and buy a similar one in terms of year/mileage with 4wd?

    They made a limited run of the 2WD version for a number of years. Jeep stopped a couple of years ago.

    ditto - isn't worth the trouble...sell it and get a used or new one already set up.
    Too much to list, see profile
    It takes a special kind of stupid to think criminals will obey gun laws...

    I know there is a thread on here about it, I'm just too lazy to find it for you.

    Good luck with your project!!!

    I don't know if you made this list before I talk to you , but a lot of the stuff on you list is the same things

    # 4 , 9 and 10 take off your list
    Here is some pictures of the adapter and adapter mount

    The bracket to hold the cable on the adapter

    Maybe if you can find a 4wd and only have to pay between 900 to 1500 difference

    I converted mine and my total cost after upgrades was 1800
