I'm not much on transmissions but I'm almost positive youd be better off just getting the 4x4 trans because by the time you convert the other to work...that's assuming it can be done...you would have more $$ in it than if you had just gotten the right one to begin with but again I don't know as much about transmissions as others. that being said, can the original transmission not be rebuilt?

it probably could but around here it will cost around 700 with no guarantee because it went under salt water for a period of 2 days .. and as for finding a 4x4 replacement unfortunately i have searched a whole bunch of junk yard in my area nobody has that transmission in 4x4 i found one online for 250 bucks but 2wd brand new i figured converting it would be cheaper beings i have the old one i can transfer parts
