Any sense doing this? If so, what needs to be done besides running the vacuum lines?

Nothing as far as I know. It will allow you to shift on the fly with a dash switch to 2wd. Other than that, no added benefit (other than a slight fuel economy increase and less drivetrain wear)
FOR SALE
'87 Comanche 4.0L AW4/NP242 3.73 gears, lifted 5" on near new 33" tires $3500 obo
'82 Eagle Wagon (Brown Betty) 4.2L/727/NP229 and soon 8.25 rear axle and non-vacuum 3.08 front to match. 235/75/15 tires. It's down to minor body work (someone creamed my driver's door but I have another in good shape) almost rust free and interior work (seats are worn and carpet torn). $2000 but about to go up due to more work being done.

Not really. Unless the 119 is toast and you can't find a replacement, there really is no reason to go through the trouble in my opinion.
