2wd to 4wd

Let me start out... I have a 00 Mazda B3000 (Ranger) that is similar to the Splash. I.E. Front torsion suspension, lift blocks in back, etc.

What im looking for is a parts list for the 4wd conversion. Ive been searching high and low for the FX transfer case, with no luck at all. So, I must suck it up and use the electronic shift t/c. I know someone out there had to do this before.... HELP!

Thanks!!!

Mike

I can't give you that kind of parts list, but you can see what I did with mine over on my Cardomain site. I still have to modify the transmission, though I did the the 4x4 shaft out of the donor transmission (won't that guy be surprised when he tries to drive his truck...).

I'm also not using a standard t-case control system but a fully manual control of the electric t-case except for the end limits (to keep the motor from overdriving). It uses no active components except a couple of relays for the control, and only one active component to detect 4HI mode and light the light. Very simple. I'll be posting on it soon.

Look at my cardomain site (link in my signature) and go to page 25.

I used parts from a full size 1978/79 F-150 for mine.
