What parts do I need to make my 2wd 4wd?

Hey guys, I'm wondering what all I need to change to make my 2wd zj 4wd. I know I'd need the transfer case, front driveshaft, front axle etc. Just curious what else is needed and if there is anything out of the ordinary that'd I'd need to do.

Fwiw I'm a decent mechanic and should have no problem doing this. For instance my other ride is a nissan fwd car that was an auto that I switched to a spd.

Sell it.
Buy a 4wd model.
Not worth the cost and hassle.

Eh, i'm not like everyone and going to persuade you not to do it. I'm a fan of projects so if you don't mind a little bit of work i'd say go for it. The parts can be found relatively cheap at local yards and such. You'd need nothing out of the ordinary. Go for it
