2x4 to 4x4??

hey guys i found a guy with an 88 bronco and he is looking to swap to 2x4 from a 4x4 and im looking to do the opposite..

will his parts bolt onto my 93 f350 crew cab???
what will i have to change / modify?
also what are things i should look for on his truck??
also how hard of a job is this?
thanks in advance.
OH BTW
i just put a brand new e40d trans in my truck and was going to do the driveshaft bearing tonight? should i wait on the bearing?
thanks.
swap will cost me 80 bucks ( my stuff plus 80 for his stuff. )

THANKS GUYS!

Nope sorry but from my knowledge it is not a bolt on application. Your talking about getting rid of a 1 ton drivetrain and going to a 1/2 ton drive train. Unless he has all 1-ton drivetrain under that bronco I don't see it happening. In my opinion you would be better off selling your truck and buying a 4x4. He would be better off to buy your truck, so you can buy a 4x4. That way he can keep his bronco and make in to an off-road toy and have something to pull it to the trails. Just my opinion though.

I don't think so, and I agree with BC If you want a 4x4, your better off just going out and getting one, It can be done but it's a big hassle, and I don't know if those parts are usable to you.

There usable if you got a F-150 standard cab long box. But not if you got a 1-ton truck.

There are very few attempts to convert that actually follow thru. Id sell and buy a 4x4.

The Bronco Parts will not work.

The conversion would not be hard at all, but it will take some parts. You will need a front end from a F-350 4X4, witch are hard to find, but possible. You will need a 4X4 E4OD tranny and transfer case from a 250 or 350. You will need drive shafts, front and rear. The tallest lift for your truck, after the conversion is 6". It should clear 38's, 44's with a body lift. If you have a dually, you will need front spacers. If you get a lift, you will not have to find front leaves. You will have to install 4X4 warning lights, but it will not be hard, they should already be in the dash, just run wires from the switshes on the tfcase and install bulbs.

I would recommend finding a cheap parts truck and swapping the parts out and then selling the other in 2WD.

Good luck, and let me know if you have an questions.
