    thats all you need, just the output shaft. 4wd don't use a tailshaft like a 2w does.

    you need the adapter obviouslly. That becomes the new tailshaft in a manner of speaking.

    yes its just the output shaft thjat differs from 4x2 to 4x4, thats all, but theres a catch; the shaft is the first thing installed in a tranny case, so you will have to totally disassemble the trans in order to remove the 2wd shaft and put in the 4wd one

    this goes for all or most all gm models of trannies


    good luck!
