Default Does Any Company's Make a 2wd to 4wd conversion kit?

Hello everyone, Just out of curiousity I was wondering to any company's make or sell a 2wd to 4wd conversion kit for a 1994 3.0L Ford Ranger Extended Cab? I'm just having a ball of a time trying to see if a conversion kit even exists?

Conversion companys don't exist no more (but there are some 4x4 shops that will customize you one but it's alot of $$$$$$$$)


My 78 Ford Courier 4x4 was converted by a 4x4 company for Ford/Mazda during the 70s. Talked with the guy who made it. He's pretty cool.

From the reply's I can deffinately tell why I didn't find anything. So do most people just find a 4X4 front axle and transfer case and a new rear end?

Yes, Dana 44 axles mostly but you will have to find an earlier year model Bronco unless you feel like shorten a fullsize truck Dana 44. You can put under any axle you want...but you will have to shorten it unless it came in a small pick-up.

You can also find a Dana 30 unless you just find a Ranger 4x4 and call er done.

Converting is a pain some. Lots of time and $$$$$. Do you have that? If so, go ahead.

Lots of modifications need to be done.

It's according to the rear end. I mean if you have a small engine or small block v8...most rear ends will hold up. Unless you have 700hp+..or so.

Most will swap to a 9 inch.....

Probably cheaper to buy a used, but not abused Ranger 4x4 IMO.
