2wd conversion question...

Hi all,

About a month ago I purchased my first Jeep. It's a '07 2wd JK. Having never owned a Jeep before, I really didn't know how much I would like it, but to be honest... it has far exceeded my expectations, and now unfortunately I am wishing it was a 4wd.

After some poking around underneath it, and doing some research here, I am finding out it wouldn't be too hard to slap an axle, transfer, transmission adapter, and adding the shift components to attain that goal.

This got me to thinkin', with as much modification as the Jeep community does, there has to be a boat load of stock equipment out there somewhere that can be picked up at reasonable prices.

This ends up being the question... where, and what is a reasonable price for those components? As for now, I really don't plan on modding the vehicle for any other purpose than bring it up to a stock 4wd configuration. I'll save the fun/expensive stuff for when it's paid off.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

That's exactly what I'm looking to do! Lol... the color is even the same!

The big problem I'm having is trying to find the stock equipment that somebody has done away with for bigger, better stuff. Any suggestions?

Thanks!
