Transfer case, '95 vs '97?

In the course of my big body-off project I'm busy swapping the engine and trans from my '95 over to the '97 frame. The Transfer case from the '95 has a long flange that looks like the driveshaft just slides into, while the '97 has a bolt on flange. Is there a strength/utility difference between these 2? They both bolt up the same to the trans so that's not a problem.

No they are not the same a '95 is a 1356 a '97 is a 4407, your rear DS from a '95 will not work on a 4407. IMO the 4407 is stronger.

The only thing to watch out for on those 4407s is the front outputs. They are the only weak link and more than a few cases in the yards out there are missing the front yokes as a result. I had to buy a whole case just for the front yoke for my uncle when he broke his last winter.

So is the front yoke from the 1356 swap-in-able into the 4407? That'd be the best of both worlds, eh?

What do you mean about swapping in the '97 driveshaft? I thought the '97 was the patient receiving the transplant. Isn't the '97 driveshaft already there?

Well I had removed it to replace the center support bearing, plus the possibility of using the '95's TC
