Re: Convert Command-Trac to Selec-Trac?
I would think it'll be a bolt in deal, I assume they are both 23 spline NP round pattern cases. Since you even have both sets of driveshafts incase the 242 ( selectrac) is longer than the 99 part time case. since it an auto/manual difference you might also incur driveshaft costs.
BUT, the 88 case is older, and has alot of miles on it, I wouldnt swap without checking it out first, at least seals, most probably bearings and chain, Im unsure if the viscous couplings wear out or cost much to replace, might be a deciding factor.
just the Tcase shift linkage, and possibly the driveshafts. Unless you care enough to wire a bulb socket behind the dash. ther is probably already a light that says "fulltime"
if you drive in alot of intermittent snow/ice the selec trac is great, I used to use it to pull out quick in traffic in teh rain also, damn near impossible to spin a tire at full throttel with that setup..
depends on your uses of the truck really
