You will need the following: 1. A transmission with a transfer case. 2. Different drive line to the rear. 3. Possible new rear differential that has a matching gear ratio to the NEW front differential. 4. New front differential and possible half-shafts. 5. Entire new front suspension. 6. Various and numerous other equipment too numerous to mention. I think it would be easier to just take off the radiator cap and drive a 4wd under it.


I always heard that it was better to keep the gas cap. That way you can repair your car while the engine is hot.


In my opinion, it would be a waste of time and money to attempt that change. It would probably be cheaper to just buy a 4wd. Only do it if the truck has a sentimental value or something like that. Don't do it to just any old truck. Trust me there.

I agree with the buy an old truck and swap body, you can probably find a truck that is rotted out or has been trough a crash cheap with the drive train and all components intact you just have to be wary of the frame. There is an extra cross member for some trucks as well but if you are really handy you can make that for your frame and bold/weld it on. I have seen a truck frame made entirely custom with 6" Chanel and only cutting and welding tools.

yes you can convert a 2 wd to a 4 wd, but the cost of doing this will exceed the value of the truck.

We need to know what years the vehicles are and which part you want to change.

On a 1995 Ford Explorer : In the center stack of the dash , just to the left of the radio , is a rotary dial that selects the positions of the Control Trac 4x4 system ( 2 WD , 4 WD AUTO , 4 WD LOW ) With the engine running ( as long as the back wheels are not slipping ) turn the selector from 2 WD to 4 WD AUTO , then if the back wheels start to slip , some of the power is transferred to the front wheels ( it's the " set and forget " position that can be used on dry surfaces , and in the rain and snow ) If you want to select 4 WD LOW ( for off road use because of the limited speed ) With the engine running , your foot on the brake pedal , shift to NEUTRAL , select 4 WD LOW and then after the " 4 WD LOW " light comes on in your dash , shift into gear

No. The center shaft in the 4-wheel drive transmissions are longer so the transfur case will slid up on it. The 2-wheel drives are shorter.

YES. But you better make sure the gear ratio in the 74 matches the 78. 4-wheel drives must have the same gear ratio in the front and rear are things will BRAKE UNLESS IT IS IN MUD AT ALL TIMES.

Jut pull of drum if not 4 wd, make sure parking brake off and you may have to tap it a couple times.

No, they are all 2 wd.

No you cannot. Handling and braking will be compromised. In the event of an accident your insurance will be invalid.

Answerchange your 4x4 actuator It could be that or in the switch. But probable it is the actuator on trans mission..

You don't. The system relies on an electric switch that must function properly in order to engage 4WD (and return to 2WD when desired). First, check the fuses. It could be as simple as that.

Spray a little WD-40 on a cloth or directly on the adhesive and it will come off easily. Fingernail polish, gasoline, laquer thinner or a razor blade will do the same but WD-40 smells better.ANS 2 - Lift-Off or Goo Gone is much better, -doesn't make the mirror greasy as WD 40 does.
