Transmission and transfer case shafts

Can anyone tell me if the output shaft on a non 4wd aw4 is the same length as a 4wd aw4? I am trying to find out if I need to get another tranny or can keep mine. That way I can just swap out the input shaft of the transfer case.

The 2WD and 4WD AW-4s have different main shafts. It's not just a matter of putting the Xfr case adapter in place of the tail shaft housing. Changing the main shaft requires a complete tear down of the trans. It can be done, but it's not really cost-effective. Probably cheaper to get a decent JY 4WD trans.

My other car is also a Jeep,.. and so is the other one,.. and that one too. How many do you own before it's "a herd" ?
