This in my opinion is a very bad idea. You will get parts set for the two wheel built or by from a wrecked truck that will not be used in the 4 wheel drive set-up. Like the rear drive-shaft. You will have one made for the 2wd application which will need to be shortened when you go back to the 4wd. Just using up time and your money.

Don't get so excited that you start throwing money and time at this thing.

Like I said . I wouldn't fool with it after seeing the video. It would also need a different tailshaft for the transmission along with the married transfer case to make it right . It is hard to say what trans and tranfercase it has now . Looks like it could be an early Dodge with the divorced transfercase .
