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.

How do you engage the 4WD on the 1995 Ford Explorer?

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
