Steering hangers, shock hoops/cage, new steering box or modify it, leaf shackles or hangers or link mounts if you link it, crossmembers to strngthen it up,

Default Re: parts needed for 4x4 conversion

I would fing a rolled ranger and get all the swap parts.

Basic break down

Front axle (d30 should do fine easy to find as well)
Front driveline (will be custom)
Trans w/tcase
4x4 rear driveline
Steering box (I use an f150 box)
Coils (or leafs)
Lift leafs for back (you will need 2-4" over stock to fit front axle)
