take te entire rear suapension as one piece, so the mont for the diff is there, and the rear trailing arms that have the 4wd hubs.

Might need to drill some holes thare are not there for the 4WD rear main crossmember assembly. I had to drill holes out for the rear diff hanger. YOu will see exactly where you need to drill; if they are not already drilled out for you. Center carier bearing for the drive shaft will be interesting too. I have not got that far. I'm leaning twoard getting mine modified into a solid drive shaft and skipping the center carier bearing. As usual however I'm sure funding will over ride my desires.. and I'll end up just trying to bolt in the OEM drive shaft
I'm about half done with this very same swap. All I can say is may the force be with you

at least being a 5spd to begin with you can use the same mounts and crossmember. the only trouble spot will be the driveshaft mount.
what you got is a little less involved than the 2wd auto to 5spd 4wd that we did, so i know for a fact you can do it with no problem

its opssible to just drill the first layer, and put a captive nut behind it through the hole where the bumper mounts fit into(on a wagon)
if you go thru the floor, use a fat washer, as it will want to pull thru as you torque it down. i would suggest using the nuts with the nylon insert so it will stay tight without a lot of torque

all of the different styles of starters i have seen will mount the same
True, they do mount the same.. But when I did my 5 spd conversion, and tried to use the longer 2wd starter, the vacuum module on the tranny got in the way and the starter wouldn't mount.. had to dig out my spare, which thankfully was a 4wd starter with the shorter body
I know you are doing D/R, wehreas I was only doing the S/R swap, so the longer body starter may fit, as you prbably don't have that vacuum module to deal with(unless you have a diff lock, then you still have to deal owith it)
