You could probably run a FWD 5spd end cover and shifter, you don't need the transfer assembly anymore and the d/r part is in the front of the case. That would shorten up the tranny under your knees.

FWD fivespeeds are totally different. Shift rod in a different spot in the case.

You can't just put a FWD cap on the end of the 4wd Trans. The lower shaft is way to long.

!


me too, its turning a 4.1 diff so there should be less stress on it and if anything give seems like it would be the rear drive axle/driveshaft on the D/R

last night I removed and axle off the Toyota Taco Rear the wheel bearing was shot, Ive never had one apart, figured out how it went, I checked an old 2WD rear I had and to my wonderful surprize the bearing and housing were the same so I swappped them out with the help of a press and now I have good wheel bearings WOOO hOO ,

tonight I removed the Diff and welded it up , so were gettin ready , will be takin it out on the 16th of Oct to walker

no probably wont, may not want to turn if I do, also the front diff is a rear diff with the hollow diff stubs , so I dont want to break it, may install a LSD up front

How did you like that rear suspension setup with the single leaf spring? It obviously articulates pretty well....but it looks kind of....unstable :eek:
