Default 98 4x4 conversion to 2wd

I have a 98 2wd lifted single cab ranger and I found this extended cab 99 4x4 ranger. Are the front suspension mounts the same? I'm not worried about anything else cause putting a 5.0 in it snyway

Your 2wd uses coil springs, the 4wd uses Torsion Bars. Frames are completely different up front.

It would be more cost efficient to sell 2wd buy 4wd.
Search and you will see many threads with the same question asked.

Can I unbolt stuff from 2wd and move it to the 4wd? I have a 5.0 with a t5 and there is no option to sell anything and buy the other. I don't have the money for all that shit. I build on a budget
