the tail housing will bolt up but you gotta swap the tail shaft so that the driveshaft will fit it

yeah sounds like you lost a shift fork

Wait.

Just swap the xmember, and xcase in, even if you don't have 4wd you can run it in 2 hi.

and if you ever want 4wd, you're just in need of a new front setup.

Having had a vehicle in the past that was lacking a front driveshaft, 4 lo still does magic only driving the back.

But if you can only get the tranny, then no dice.
