I know on a 3/4 ton there is a big difference in the frame as the 2wd is coils and the 4wd is leaf springs. The whole frame is different from the firewall forward, 2wd is a C channel where the 4wd is box all the way to the front. I guess the biggest difference would be going from twin I beam 2wd to either a leaf or coil front suspension. I would get someone with a 4wd and set the two side by side and measure/compare. That would be the best way to see all of the differences. I found it easier to buy a good rolling drivetrain and just put the 2wd body on it, but a 1/2 ton might be easier.
