So, maybe I'll have a write-up on this...
So far its been pretty simple. Find 4wd rear suspension. replace 2wd with 4wd stuff(bolt off, bolt on). Drill 4 holes for rear diff support, bolt stuff on. Find 4wd trans and matching diff. Install trans. This get more complicated with the XT6 trans, I think. But then again, I've got a legacy x memeber I will try on for size. The 5spd conversion was a little more complicated than this.

Item 2: This area is also on the 2wd XT turbo trans.
Item 3: The stock mount on the XT turbo trans.
I pulled out the Legacy crossmember...its WAY to big. And the center section of the XT6 FT4WD wont bolt up to the legacy xmember, and no way in heck will it bolt up to the EA82 chassis.
So, I see problems, and i see a solution, can anyone else see it?

a 5spd driveshaft should work, in fact, any driveshaft rear section is the same length from the carrier to the diff
the xt6 ft4wd around here has a 3.9 final gear

WJM - does the tranny mounting area look alot like thiese on this page? (I'm thinking it should be identical)
These pictures are specifically what I'm refering too but, realize these bottom two are of the car they were removed from hense the masive michigan cancer:

The shifter package I got was for a D/R. It was in a wreck and bent up. SO i had to bend some stuff, and I'll have to shave some metal, and take one mount and use it on something else....blah blah. Better explanation to come when i get it right.
After that, I am not going to weld, like Miles did, but rather drill and bolt up the center driveshaft supports. Then she's done after I install a new clutch cable.

The XT6 FT4WD trans will bolt up to the 2wd 5spd corssmember if you install the 2wd 5spd mounts onto the XT6 FT4WD trans.

I did go get another XT6 FT4WD trans for $50. It will go in there if I dont figure out what the problem is.
