help with 4wd swap (doing homework)

hey i was looking to buy a 2wd powerjoke and was wondering what all i need to replace to get a 4wd system in there.

i don't know if the strokes are manual or electronic transfer case and how the front end would match up. like would i have to fab mounting points for a f250 fwd swap or is it close enough already so i can bolt it all together? also what would be a good donor truck or trucks for this swap.

i am working with a 95 2wd power stroke with 4.10 rear end. o and its an auto.

Well I guess you first need front axle and e40d trannie with transfer case, I think 95 've electronic, about just bolting it on, I just don't really know... but wouldn't it be cheaper to sell yours and buy a 4x4 ?

Unless your going to do a custom build I suggest just go find a 4wd model.

Welcome to the Org.

When I say custom I mean custom 4link suspension, you can run a divorce transfercase if you would like. But when your all done it would be alot cheaper to buy a 4wd model.

Yes it can be done and its pretty straight forward. Since the OBS trucks are getting harder to find that aren't totaled or trashed you would need to find one that is of the same era of your truck preferable a 350 so you can get a Dana 60 for the front. If you cant find a rear end total you will have to find all the parts bit by bit. Don't let anyone tell you it cant be done or it would be cheaper to sell yours and find one that is already 4x4. Make it a project and take all the time you want.
