Default Will a 2wd transmission fit in a 4x4??

I recently had my 91 2.3 4x4 Trans blow out. Typical plug leak...

Anyways a cheap replacement is not gonna happen as most junk yards want 6-700 bucks for a same fit. I can get a 2x4 manual Trans for 100 bucks. I just need to know wheter or not it will be a clean fit. Most likley I can grab the driveshaft off a 2 wheel drive too... anyone know or done this?

If its from the same engine then sure, itll fit. But your transfer case wont bolt to it. So you'll be converting your truck to 2wd.

Like Dirtman said, and if you want 4x4, swap the guts from the 2x4 into your case, using your 4x4 output shaft and housing.
