I have a 1990 D150 518 with od. can i get the 4x4 tail with a new shaft and bolt into my 1983 Ramcharger? Is the crossmember that big of a job? Trans shop is stating 80.00 an hour and im looking at 5000. Seriously??

Is the new crossmember that big of a job?

Do you know if the 727 and a518 use the same crossmember? I know there's several inches difference in length (in 4wd form). Driveshafts change length too.

In doing my 5 speed swap, I had to use the D250's 5spd crossmember. The hardest part was drilling new holes for it (1"-1.5" rearward).

If it were me, I'd do the re & re stuff myself... drop the trans off at the shop and pick it up when its done.
