2wd to 4wd conversion

So i heard that you can do a 4wd conversion on a 2001 2wd with 2005 parts. Everything pretty much matches up from what i hear just a couple little things are different. Has anyone done this or know of anyone that has done this??

2001 Ford F-250 7.3 Powerstroke Diesel 2wd:
Isspro Gauges
AFE Stage II Pro Guard 7
Zoodad Mod
MBRP 4" Straight Piped
05' Front End Conversion
Harley Headlights
Mickey Thompson Classic II's
Discover ST 285/75/16


Soon To Come:
Wicked Wheel (Its only been sitting in the box for two months now no big deal)

Thats the thing i gotta find the parts cheep, maybe find crashed up 05 gasser? I heard it would be cheeper then if i did the same year because of the coil spring setup. If i had to by the idividual parts what do you think i would need to buy?

When it comes down to it its just welding, cutting, and bending metal to make it work. If you use a manual transfer case it's not hard at all. Another member here (Dlonno) put a straight axle on his 05 2wd. You gotta look at the situation and the vehicle. 4wd conversion on a Ford not hard at all. 4wd conversion on a Dodge looks way hard.

You'll also need a 4wd tranny though.

2wd tranny's have minor different internals. I think the output shafts are different in the 4wd trannys vs. the 2wd tranny's.
