GEM question

Would a GEM for a 2 wheel drive work for a 4 wheel drive. Ordered GEM says
4x2 my Ranger is a 96 4.0 4 wheel Drive

I don't have the ETM for a 1996 so I can say one way or the other. However, I would think the easiest way to find out would be to simply call a local Ford parts department and see if they show a different part number between two wheel and four wheel drive for the GEM.

I believe they'll be different part #'s. I'm in no way a GEM expert although I did replace mine... had to spend around $400 from Ford for a new one.

You might get lucky & one of the junk yard hunters could find one from a similar year & options truck a lot cheaper.

The GEM on a 96 controls the 4x4 shift motor and instrument cluster. a 2wd GEM will not work
