I know you guys like updates so here's what I have done. First thing I bolted down the cab. Then I swapped the under hood harness and ABS motor/controller(?) I have been down this road before, when swapping to 4wd most 4wd's have 4wabs and most 2wd's have rabs. If you alter the lines to use the rabs, you have a hard time finding a 4x4 gem for rabs (#14 has 2 gems, one for the 4wd and the other for the rabs/speedo signal). Anyway under the hood is pretty much done other than a couple minor details and a good cleaning. Next I pulled the dash and swapped the dash harness. 2wd trucks do not have 4wd wiring and the wires for the 4wabs. Next I have to pull the drivers seat and replace the harness that goes down to the frame and transfer case..stay tuned...lol

See that white plug on the drivers side above the e brake. That harness is next. It goes to the frame and transfer case. Once I get that swapped and the dash back in I should be able to start it up....

Its not that hard just a lot of work. That's why I almost didn't do the frame swap... It is easier since I've done it before, takes out the guess work. I am planning on doing a how to one of these days.

It runs!!! Anyway I pulled the drivers seat out and the harness frm the dash to the frame already had the 4wd wires in it...cool! I just added a hole in the factory location and installed the pigtail and reinstalled the dash. Anyway I started it tonight momentarily to make sure it runs and the transfer case kicks in. I still have to fill the radiator, change the oil, bleed the brakes...ect pics...

Yeah and I might crank the torsion bars a little, it looks nose down in that picture. I took it on about a 100 mile trip today, it's running good.
