all u have 2 do is toss out the Intermediate Housing-transfer case-Driveshaft-Crossmember 4 Transfer Case & TRANSMISSION.THEN BUY ANOTHER Transmission,Transmission Mount-Have Driveshaft made.THEN ALL the Linkagr from the Transmissio 2 the Crossmember(frame)OR a ANOTHERN steering Colume with the shifter Tube,ALL NEW mountingbolts OR BUY a Floor Shifter.or buy another truck..

The transmission and the transfer case are two different things, so your transmission isn't what makes it 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive, the transfer case is another set of gears which engage the front wheels, it also has 4 wheel low which will change the final drive ratio for towing and other situations where you need lots of torque. I don't really know or care how to change the 4x4 to a 2x4 because as soon as you make it 2wd you'll probably find your self in a situation where you need. I say leave it a lone but i thought id just tell you what the difference between a transfer case and and a transmission is. No to be a smartass or anything.

No it will not. The center shaft that's in the 2-wheel drive transmission is shorter then the 4-wheel drive transmissions. Therefore the transfur case will not fit on the 2-wheel drive transmission.

NO... 2 and 4-wheel drive transmissions WILL NOT INTERCHANGE.

Not usually, the four wheel drive is hooked up after the transmission. If you are having problems with your transfer case it will sound like the transmission because the transfer case is bolted to the back of the transmission. The four wheel drive operates independently from the transmission. If you have a bad transfer case that would cause locking in the drive line it could cause problems, but your vehicle is designed to use the four wheel drive and typical use of your four wheel drive won't cause damage to the transmission. It would be advisable to only use it as necessary because it will decrease your fuel economy by about 20%.
