Question: How many of you are running a 2WD 700R4 converted to 4WD? What is your setup (motor, tcase, lift, tires, gearing)? Reason I'm asking: I found a great deal on a rebuilt 700r4.. gonna cost me $200 from a good friend. Problem is it's a 2wd 700r4. Now i've searched and found that I basically need to take the tail housing off and either cut down the exisiting outputshaft or replace it with a shorter one. I'll be doing the latter (replacing it). I've searched and basically found that no one seems to know the real difference between a 2WD and 4WD 700r4. Most seemed to say it's okay to run the 4WD. A few have said they've run it but most of the info is SPECULATION. What I'm looking for is real-world experience... such as "I've been running it for X number of years with X setup and have had no issues (or I destroyed the tranny since it wasn't the 4WD version)." Or if you know someone else who has run this setup, any input is appreciated. My setup and what I'll be using it for: I'm not going to be jumping this truck. All my wheeling will be lower speed (I know I may have to re-gear the axles- different discussion). I will probably throw it into 4WD MAYBE 2-3 times a month. I live in Southern California so it's a desert. Mostly hard packed with some exposed granite and occassional sand where I'll be wheeling. The tranny will go between my 350ci and 205 t-case. I have a 3" lift and will keep my 33" A/T tire setup for at least 2-3 more years, when I MIGHT go up to 35's. I have a 20mile round trip commute to work 4 days a week. Hope I provided enough info to get some good replies. Thanks!
