You will need to change the transmission output shaft, or change the transmission. To change the output shaft EVERYTHING needs to come out of the trans.

You will have a lot of little things that will suck $, brake lines, fluids, filters, u-joints, drive shafts...etc.... Steering will be an issue, i.e. will a new box be required or just new tie rods. I have had several friends ask the same question. My answer is always sell it and buy a 4x4, will save $ in the long run.
