    I found it once, but I can't seem to track it down again. I'm looking to do a manual transfer case swap on my 2nd gen. I know there is a cutoff for which year can use a 4runner transfer case vs an FJ case. I have a 2010 6m 6 cyl DCSB. Can I use a transfer case from a 2010 4runner? I know I need to swap input shafts, but there was something about speedo drive...
    Nybody have any insight for me?

    I think you only need to swap input shafts if your truck is manual.. I could be wrong though

    2010 will work. Are you manual or auto?

    Some 2nd gens read speed at the wheels, some at the tcase. If the back of your tcase has a sensor near the rear output flange, and the FJ/4runner case you buy does not, you'll need to pop the cover off and peek inside to see if it has the worm gear on the output shaft. It will either be flat or grooved. If its flat you will need to swap both the worm gear and the sensor over. If it has the worm gear, just need to swap the sensor for the cover.

    I dont have a picture looking through the hole at the worm gear, unfortunately, but it should be pretty easy to tell.

    As stated since you're a 6 speed you need to swap the speed sensor from your case to the 4runner case. You'll also need to swap the planetary gear set or the hi/neutral/low shifter will not work properly

    Are there any gaskets or other replaceable parts I'll want to have in hand? I've ordered the FrontRange twin stick. I plan on removing the cup holder and having the sticks show up aft of my shifter.

    X2 on replacing the seal if the case is older and has some miles in it. May as well do the o-ring there too. Pretty sure the part number is 96721-35063

    Thank you for this post, the only information that I found previously was the solid red to grey with black stripe. Mine being an 07 I'm hoping that this fixes the light not working for the 4wd. It took about 2 hours but I thought I would find something like this. Thanks again for all your knowledge.

    Why do you leave both connectors unplugged? You plug them both back in after you splice the 2 wires?

    4wd ecu is no longer required after the swap. Leave the plugs disconnected. You can also remove the 4wd ecu if you'd like. Just 2 philips screws holding the bracket to the dash. I just left mine in the truck

    Gotcha, I'm following this thread for my 4x4 conversion I'm doing in about 2 weeks, and I hadn't seen that step before
