    Not necessary but like hoss stated you cans swap output shafts, but I found one with less miles anyways for a good price, plus after switching trans i realized my prerunner one was probably about to go haha, Hoss I just grounded the position switch on the passenger side plug on the trans and ran a wire to the light in the dash

    basically the 4th wire in on the dash plug needs to be spliced and grounded to the plug on the trans

    That was my question...if I went with a manual gearbox...how do I get the 4x4 light to come on and how do I turn off traction control and LSD. Just hit the button every time when I engage it lol? Hmmmmm

    Not sure on 2nd gens but on 1st gens the transfer case has sensors of where the shifter is so that you cant accidentally put it in 4wd while in Park if you have the push button so all I had to do was ground the sensor to the light and whenever I move the Jshift into 4H, or 4L it lights up

    $450: Transmission, Transfer Case, and front driveshaft
    $730: Front diff, cv's, front half of rear driveshaft
    $250: Gear Oil, new upper ball joints & misc. little pieces.

    Awesome! I'm leaning towards LT and Supercharge before I do the swap. Plus side to 2WD is I can pull larger travel numbers up front and not worry about CV angles....On that note...I want 4wd :*( lol
