I found a donor truck that I am using to get the parts for my 5 spd swap. I have a 97 4x4 with an auto. the donor is a 2wd 5spd truck. I am looking for input on what parts i will need to make this tranny work. I need to know if my transfer case will work and where i can find a tailshaft housing and tailshaft. Also are there any other things I may not be thinking of. thanks

Pedals
trans
bell housing
flywheel
plate on motor
4x4 tailshaft housing and shaft
Driveshafts?
starter?

I know it is to late but I would say look for a 4wd donor truck
your transfer case will work you will need 4wd output shaft for trans
drive shafts will be shortened/lengthened
flywheel bolts are different
speedo should work
get a new clutch and master /slave from southbend
plate on motor is ok
starter is ok

my conversion was 2wd so it was a bit different

by the way if your 2wd tail housing has a speedometer drive I would like to buy the tail housing...

my trans was a later year model and so I do not have a speedo

I did the same swap. I give the guys at high impact transmission and gear a call they can help you out making your 2wd tramission work in a 4wd truck and they have the parts to make your transfer case work.
