2WD to 4WD I need all the help i can get

I have a 1994 Powerstroke regular cab I have the 5 speed transmission and am looking to do a 2 wheel drive to four wheel drive conversion I know very little about it. The main things I need to know is exactly every part I need and off what year and model truck. Thanks for everyone helping I really appreciate it.

transfer case and linkage, driveshafts, front axle (look for a D60 as opposed to the TTB D50), everything associated with the front axle, front leaf springs, a 4x4 trans, the front end on the 2wds i do not believe is boxed so you will have to figure out something to do about mounting the front of the leafs. i'm sure i am forgetting something

In my opinion it is nowhere near worth it. Just buy a 4wd. If you really want to do it though you will need to buy a donor truck. It will make things a lot easier.

Dana 60
4x4 zf5
Transfer case
Either modify your driveshafts or again get a donor
PCM
Column
Dash cluster
And some decent fabrication skills to get the front axle in there.

Need to do an rsk from pmf or sky, that will make the front hangers for ya, need to remove radius arm mounts and add rear leaf mounts, axle, tranny/tcase, driveshafts, and drill holes in the cross member (at the oil pan) for your track bar mount, and t case shift linkage,

Keep in mind being as how your truck is a 94.5 you need that year or older axle so that the brake lines will work properly for the slide pin calipers

If he wants the 4wd lights he will need the cluster. You are right on the rest I started going through a 5 speed swap in my head.

The Dana 60 is the front axle you will be using. It is a one ton solid axle. The Dana 50 TTB is a two piece axle that is prone to wearing out tire, a total PIA to lift, and has terrible ride quality.

350 only. 250 will be the Dana 50, you do not want that. 94.5-97 have the same brake set up, while the 94 and older have a different set up.
