I've had a transfercase in there for years. I got a manual shift free and I blew up my M5OD so when I replaced it I used a 4wd one instead of another 2wd one. That was not part of this and does not factor into it for me. It would not factor into it for someone doing this from a factory 4x4 truck either.

No it wouldn't factor in for someone with 4x4, but you specifically said that you were going from 2wd to 4x4 with a sas.

In all reality though, my build hasn't been too bad. I bought some high dollar part like the Cage arms and the new rear leafs but also saved alot by getting a free D60 in excellent condition. Money wise, I'm probably somewhere in the middle of what everyone has posted here.
