Converting a 2 wheel drive to a 4 wheel drive

I am trying to switch a 2X4 to a 4X4. I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a cut out in the floor for the 4 wheel drive lever. Also Wondering if anyone had suggestions for pulling the transfer case. Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Get a 4x4. Yes there hole in floor and you will need some brackets for the lever. I hope you are working on a very nice 2x4 for a swap like that to be worth the time, money and effort.

Do you have a complete parts donor or are you going to try and get it a piece here and there ?
If you have a matching donor vehicle go for it... If your trying a piece at a time from different years it could be a challenge.
