2WD Samurai questions

I'm off to pick up my latest Samurai purchase (1991 2WD Samurai). I was wonderin' if there's any gearing difference between the 2WD transmission and 4WD transmission? Also, are there any components I should keep which would be good for the 4WD conversion? I have a 410 T-case; can I pull the gears out of the 2WD T-case and send them off with the 410 gears to make the 4:16?


AARRRRRRRG! 1987 Red JX 'vert, 4.5 BREEZE SPOA, SJ410 T-case (not sure how I like it), 29 Super Swampers (31 BFG M/T knock offs - eventually) AARRRRRRRG!

Re: 2WD Samurai questions

as far as i know, the 2WD sammy is geared exactly the same as the 4WD... the high range is still reduced in the tcase, so the tranny gears are the same. i dont think you can use the gears out of the tcase because there is no front output shaft, and most likely some kind of weird counter gear since there is no low range on the 2WD (i really dont know though since ive never seen the inside of a 2WD case)...

Re: 2WD Samurai questions

The transmisissions are the same, and the T-Case is almost the same with a couple parts left out, and a stub shaft instead of the front output shaft along with a blank front cover. The T-Case can be backfitted easily for 4x4 if desired.
