    I will have a 98 Version 4WD NV4500 for sale after the first of the year. It is complete from bellhousing to tailshaft. It is presently coupled to a 78 version 205 transfer case(figure 8 bolt pattern). I will be selling it for the tranny for $1500.00 complete with bellhousing, tranny, tailhousing, Advanced Adapter plate to 205, clutch, pressure plate, and flywheel. The transfer case will be extra.

    You need a bellhousing from a 91-95 NV4500 since only these use a clutch fork. Newer ones use a hydraulic release bearing so the bellhousing, input retainer and trans case are slightly different.

    I just happen to have the same 2wd tranny you do. My plan is to use a Dodge input shaft (1" longer, same spline), SM465 bellhousing, and make my own 1" thick adapter.

    Just need some money and some space to work! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I'm planning on a remote t-case since I have the wheelbase to spare. To convert it to a 4wd type, you need a different output shaft and extension housing. Then the NP241 will bolt right on. A round-pattern NP205 will bolt on with only minor mods; notch the extension housing for the shift rails and swap a "short" 32-spline input into the 205.

    I am hoping I could find someone who switched the tailshaft for the dodge, and still has their 32 spline shaft and maybe housing? and maybe has the stock bellhousing cause they mounted to jeep motor or something else...

    Not to be too sarcastic, but you are sure hoping for a lot of things to happen. You will be better off looking for a 4wd model. The output shaft is the mainshaft. Usually the only reason to have one laying around is because it's been damaged. As for the tail housing and bell housing they can be found for less than $100.00 each.
