As I mentioned , about half of the guts of the tranny need to be removed. Then you remove a snap ring and the output shaft slides out the rear of the tranny.

You slide in a 2WD shaft, reinstall the snap ring and remainder of parts.

you are then done.

You will need to purchase a 2WD tail housing too.

This require the proper gaskets and O rings to seal up the tranny too.

Cheaper $$ would depend on many things here.
Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
