2 WD to 4WD

Asked this question in the xj forum with a hundred and 50 lookers but no answers' I would like to throw this out to all. I would like to know if anyone has transformed a 2 wheel 2 door xj to four wheel drive. I am looking at a 1997 2 door XJ with a straight 6 4.0 with a 5 speed that I found on Craigslist and I know where there are a couple of 4 door xj's I can pull parts from for the front drive. would like to here from anyone who has done something similar and if the 2 door and 4 door share same unibody and any other difficulties I might encounter? any help would be appreciated.

Re: 2 WD to 4WD

I think one of the biggest perks of having two straight axles is the ease of adding a differential. Go for it, the transfer case lever will probably be the hardest modification. It will most likely need to be lifted a couple inches for front driveline clearance, but I'm guessing that's the plan anyway.
