You really should sell it and buy a 4x4. I get attached to my vehicles also but you are talking about a lot of work and money. For example you would need: front differential, axles, transfer case, front driveshaft, rear driveshaft, misc actuators, wiring etc... In reality it is just not worth it. If you really need a 4x4 sell yours and buy one, it will be much, much easier.

Honestly you would have to go to salvage yards and start pricing parts. It would probably cost at least a few grand.

best bet buy a complete wreck 4x4 truck get what you need and sell the rest of it. There are always small parts you need when doing something like that
