I have a 98 Yukon slt 2wd, what parts do i need to convert it to 4×4?

is it a direct bolt on from a 4×4 model? are the parts expensive? i know some say its not worth it, but I’m just looking for a project to keep busy.
some of you are missing the point here… i know its not worth it, i know its time consuming. i just need the list of parts, that all

    It would be cheaper to sell your 2wd and buy a 4wd one.

    You would need to replace the entire front suspension, get a transfer case, front drive shaft, new rear drive shaft, lots of wiring to get everything to work, and lots of time. It would kill your already low resale because of the extreme modifications and the fact that its going to be way less reliable than the same truck that was built as a 4wd one.

    right off the top of my head you will be looking at suspension a transfer case and driveshaft thats just the major stuff and not even close to everything NOT EVEN CLOSE. also you will need to decide if you want ifs (then you'll need all the components for that control arms and what not) or straight axle (then there will be cutting and welding of brackets and so on). I would find a junked 4×4 get under the vehicle and start removing parts from the transfer case forward and i wouldnt stop until the truck is bare. go to a pick and pull or something like that and if you can find a 4×4 just start robbing the front half of the truck. that will for sure be the cheapest. although it might be hard to find one. our pick and pull here in the florida panhandle doesnt have hardly any gm 4×4's. but i guess thats a good testament to the vehicle.
