    its not that hard 2 do, i just got done converting my 2wd suburban it is now 4x4. it was pretty easy, just get the brackets and hangers from a 4x4 frame, i had all the mounts and everything and it only took be about 6 hours total, 2 get rivets out, clean the hangers up a lil bit, measure, align and drill new holes.

    Now i just gotta get a 454 4x4 crossmember and a 205 case and the big stuff is done.

    good luck man

    freeflow you didn't happen to take any picks along the way did ya? I amabout to do the same thing and just wanted to see what took place before I start doing it. I am looking at starting in january after x-mas. What did you have to do for the engine? I know the front cross member that hold the engine in has to come out and you need new motor mounts I belive. I am hoping to get all that off of a donor truck but i would liek to know for sure before I get started. Anything that I can start aquiring before hand will only benefit me. That way I can start seeing what all has to go where.
