What do I look for to change my truck from 2 to 4 wheel drive. I want to keep my slant as well. Let me know what parts and numbers if possible. Thanks

You would be better served just finding another truck that was already 4x4. If you are really 'attached' to your current truck you could possibly swap the cab and bed to a 4x4 frame/chassis.
jus sayin.....

Yup different front cross member, different trans either different rear end or move spring mounts to top of axle tubes, find transfer case, find front diff (has to match the rear ratio by the way) and front driveshaft. And probably more that I haven't mentioned yet besides.
