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

From the research I've done it would be easier and cheaper
For me to just get the 4x4. I still have all the other stuff just
Need the trans!
