Roughly how much does a 4x2 to 4x4 conversion cost on an automatic 2000 XLT reg cab short bed?

1 of the best mods for the least amount of money is changing your dome light bulbs to natural or kool white LEDs . Never has something i spent ten bucks on made me go "holy shit" the first time I saw it.

Other good cheap ones are the throttle cable mod, and the foglight surround delete mod (for 01-03).

ohhhh boy....you have coil spring suspension, right? It might be cheaper to trade yours in on a 4x4 lol.

Also, you can fit 35s with trimming on a BL.

None of those mods are cost effective. Just a matter of personal preference.
The only mod on that list I would do are the tire/wheel upgrade but most Ranger alloy wheels look great except for the deer hoof 14" wheels.

Headlight mod = under 15 dollars
Torsion Bar lift = cost of alignment (under 40 dollars)
Exhaust = free (if cutting off exhaust after muffler)

I would have to go with wheels and tired then a t-bar crank. But it's all a personal preference thing.
