Question type: Car Customization

so here is one for you to answer. i have an 86 s15 jimmy 2dr 4x4. wanted to see what and how much trouble it would be to strip the 4x4 and turn it into a rear wheel only. i know i can take the front shaft out but i want the 4x4 components gone completely. i know id have to change the trans and the rear shaft but i was wondering about the front end as far as hubs and all. thank you in advance.

Why on earth would you want to strip the 4x4?


cause i can.


Easy job to handle have done a few of them you need the 2 wheel drive spindles, drive shaft, tailshaft for the trans, deleter plate for the 4x4 shifter, and the rest is removal and adjustments. Dont for get the trans mount and crossmemeber!


hey thanx les. i knew id have to do a few of those things but didnt know about the deleter plate. thanx again.
