96 definetly, i think maybe 97 or 95 as well, remember your going to have to get it shortened if you have an electric case

im not sure if the stock manual transfer case is the tulip style of not, does it have 6 bolts that bolt to the case or the standard 4?? if its 6 yes it will need to be shortened, 4 than it will bolt in, im sure someone on here with a level 2 can chime in

a double cardan shaft wont even bolt up to your stock case without an adapter. And with the adapter you'll have to have any of the shafts shortened.

oh sh*t i didnt think of that, im used to the aftermarket case being manual not you fancy people with the stocker case, so he could get another stock shaft, get it shortened and the adapter if im thinking correctly......much busch light has been winning all day

All 98+ cases have the tulip flange. Manual or auto doesn't matter.
