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.
