'01 4.0 Edge 2wd Auto convert to 4x4
I am looking at buying an '01 Edge 4.0 Auto reg cab 2wd truck. I just bought a '00 3.0 Auto 4x4 reg cab truck with a cracked frame. Unfortunately, it has more rust than I had planned on and am looking into options if I were to by the Edge.
My question, will the 3.0 transmission + 4x4 drive train swap into the '01 Edge with 4.0? Or, must I completely remove the drive train and swap the package? I have a '00 2.5 5spd reg cab that could benefit from the 4.0 drive train if necessary....
If there are threads talking about this, please post the links. I didn't find a similar swap question with my search. Yes, i'very seen the threads explaining how to rebuild the auto transport to make it 4x4, but i'd like to avoid that if possible being that I have two complete trucks.
