Honestly for the time and money its gonna take its not worth it. There is so much to do and the parts are rather pricey. Not to mention this subject has been beaten to death, gotta use that search button.

Buy 4 wheel drive and be done. Its not worth the hassle or headache. You will be kicking yourself in the butt wondering why you tried to convert it.
