You need a 4x4 transmission. Output shafts and tail housing are different between 2x4 and 4x4. It would be cheaper to buy a 4x4 transmission, than to rework a 2x4.

I would love to find a s47 for a 4x4 this 4x2 s42 just pretty much fell in my lap!
A friend wrecked the truck and I traded for the motor and trans!
I guess I'll sell the s42 and find a s47 4x4!!!!

might make more sense, i belive the 4x2 one will requre a disassembly and reassembly to change the rear tail shaft, if it can be done

Need the trans!
