Converting 2wd to 4wd on 03 WJ
So I have a 03 WJ 2wd which I thought was awd when I bought it. Im wanting to know what I have to do to pull this off. I want to know everything I would need, can I do it myself, how long will it take, how much it will cost. I want to know everything. Anyone with knowledge on this or anything you think would help let me know Thanks!

It's possible, but to pull it off, you're gonna need to get your wrench head buddies and their wrench head buddies on it. It was easy back in the day, but today you have all the bullcrap sensors and electronics to consider. Don't let that stop you though. Go to junk yards, get a couple of parts Jeeps, diagrams, etc ,some wrench heads and some beer (especially the beer) and it could be done.

No, you can't. Not to say that it isn't possible,just that it would cost less just to buy another Jeep with 4wd. It would be a huge mechanical undertaking, replacing the transmission, front axle, adding a transfer case, shiftconsole, linkage, wiring, sensors, etc...

Just sell your Jeep and get a new one. Look for the big 4wd shifter on the console, can't miss it.
