My buddy has a truck he's been trying to sell me for a while now. I mainly just want the axles off of it (d44/14 bff), but it also has the 465 tranny with the 205 transfer case. I just replaced my transmission in my truck about 8 months ago (Advance Auto parts special $650), but would like to have a manual (I could prabably sell my auto tranny). And maybe someday pair the transfercases together and have some kind of crazy bada** crawl ratio like 100:1 or so. My question is: Is there anything in the sm465 that needs to be rebuilt or replaced before installing it in a truck? And will it bolt to my 203 or would it be smarter to install it with the 205 attached to it (ORD has rebuild kits for the 205 and there's a tech article floating around to help me rebuild it)? Would new drive shafts be needed or will my old ones work? I was thinking that I would go ahead and ask this question before I put my lift on. I am thinking of a 4 inch lift. And with all this new stuff under my truck I think it would be smart to put the lift on AND driveline stuff in before I had the driveshafts made. One final question... will swapping in the manual tranny make it more difficult to wheel with? I appreciate any info or input anyone has on this topic and appreciate everyone's help with my questions so far. My wife always says,"there should be a support group like AA for people like you who are obcessed with their trucks..." and I tell her there is.... CK5! Thanks again. Edit: I had a guy lined up to go in with me on buying the truck. He wanted the trans and t-case, but he backed out. So now I'm considering using them for myself.
