Difference between 2wd and 4wd

Trying to bolt a 4wd tranny on to where my blown 2wd tranny was. From the pictures I've seen it looks like a 4wd tranny will bolt up, and all I'd would have to do is bolt my fixed yoke on the end. But can anyone tell me the actual differences?

Nah all I have is a broken 2wd tranny on a bench, and google images showing a 4wd tranny. I've seen two transmissions for an 6.0 sell in my area for around $800 both were 4wd and I'm trying to figure if they'd fit for I blow the cash on em'.

Nother question I'll probably be answering on my own but; will a 06 tranny work with my 03 ecm (not sure what controls the tranny shifting)?

Is the output shaft and tail housing the same on the 2wd versions? I know with the older C6 the tail shaft was different and that's the first thing that goes in when you build them.

no

you'll have to change the output shafts to make a 4x4 tranny work.

Is it difficult like on the C6 or can it be done from the backside?
