new to trucks & 4X4's

Hello Mason here. I just Bought an 88 Suburban 1/2 ton 2wd and i'm trying to find out what it would take to put a 4wd swap and 4" lift into it. i want to do it right but i want to know every way. i'm new into trucks and 4X4's Ive had 5 cars and now on my 1 truck, first auto, first v8, and soon first 4X4.. i need to know if i put a 4" lift in it now will i be able to reuse those same components when i convert it to 4X4? what are the differences between 1/2 ton burbs and 3/4 ton? are the frames the same? are the 350's the same? how hard would it be to swap a 454? and whats the hp difference between the TBI 350 and TBI 454? how about the TQ difference? are the 1/2 ton axles tough enough for 36's? that's the biggest ill ever go.. will i need 3/4 ton? and are 4x4 front axles all leaf spring? I'm starting a massive build i know...

i want a street-able rig that kicks *** offroad. i plan on having 2 sets of wheels and tires, one for Daily Driving, and one set of 34"-36" MT. eventually when im happy with the HP & TQ output, interior, sound system, 4x4 setup, and exterior im going to put a K5 top on it.. or something of the sort... THENN when the truck is all up to my liking im going to make a trailer out of a matching era chevy pickup... im sure its all been done before in some way but not my way.. and not in this combination.. any and all help will be more than appreciated!
