nope, the tailhousing is different, however the actual output shaft of the transmission is different between the 2wd and 4wd versions, and the only way to change out the tailshaft is to remove pretty much all of the internal parts. you're best choice is to find a 4x4 tranny, and where you have a 4.0 there are a ton of 4x4 M5ODs around. you're just as likely to find a 2wd for the 4.0 in a junk yard as you are to find a 4x4 for a 4.0 and keep in mind you can look from 90-91ish all the way up to the 2006 models for the correct tranny, as long as it is behind a 4.0 it will be an M5OD (unless someone did some creative swapping) so find a 4.0 4x4 tranny and you will much happier than trying to mess with swapping out the internals. they should be the same price anyway in a yard as neither one is rare.
