What is involved in making a FWD 84 GL Wagon into a 4WD?

you need the transmission and shifter stuff
you need the driveshaft and 4wd rear end.. the crossmember, trailing arms, and differential/mustache bar, and perhaps 4WD shocks. everything bolts right on except for the center bearing carrier for the driveshaft. You can either get a one-piece driveshaft made or you can very carefully weld the center carrier to the appropriate spot under the car.
I would swap in the 4WD rear end stuff first because you can do all of that at once and still drive the car with nothing pushing the differential.
Since you're talking about changing the transmission and clutch as well, you might consider putting in a 5-speed as well. very similar procedure.
