I'm new to the forum please dont mind some basic questions. I have a 2001 AWD astro with a NV136 tcase full time AWD which is OK but I would like to have 2/4 drive with Hi/Lo if I could have AWD with it that would be great I was wondering if I could put a NV236 T-case in my van if so what would I need? controler wireing harness and what would be a good doaner truck or should I just stick with a 2/4 Hi/Lo case. If I was to make a T-case change could I keep my front Diff with the new setup.Any part number would be of great help.
Thanks Frank G
I don't have the answer, but it is a question I've wondered too. Seems to me if you swapped the t-case and the PCM from the doner vehicle, it could work. Easiest would be from a similar year S-10 Blazer I'd guess.
In my exploration on a 5.3L swap, I've come across people who can completely reprogram the PCMs, so it seems yours may work too.
But I really don't know....
