    hi first time user i have a two wheel drive tranny 700r4 and i am wondering if i can use it in my four wheel drive truck both chevy half tons and both 700r4 i am looking underneath and it looks like the tail shaft of the two are not the same ? is there a way i can change this or is it a huge undertaking in which case i may be better off too sell the 2wd and buy a new 700r4 4x4?thanks in advance

    Ontonagon Mi. I think i will just sell the two wheel drive . my plow truck tranny feels like it is starting to go so i will be looking for a replacement before snow next winter. i only plow 5 or 6 spots regularly but after our last storm 20 inches i got a lot of calls and need the truck running well. i have th350 and th400 but the same prob would apply to them as well.

    Contact you local trans guy. I bet he would charge a reasonable $ to do the swap and go through it to make sure it is all good.
