From what i've gatherd the nv4500 are 6 or 8 inches longer (cant remember what the number is) than the getrag. So the length of the driveshafts would be differant, rear would need to be shorter front would need to be longer. As far as U-joints go, im not 100% sure. He's right you would need a second gen clutch, flywheel, adapter plate, and starter.

Advanced adapters sells an adapter bellhousing just for your specific purpose, you can use your original slave cylinder and starter, when I did mine I went to a bigger flywheel and a 13" clutch (From a company on e-bay), and they sent me an adapter for my starter that offset it for the new ring gear location. The shifter hole in the floor will be approx. 5" farther back than the getrag. on the u-joints, none of them will change unless you have a divorced transfer case. I say that the whole conversion is well worth the effort, I love mine.
