I'm abt. to get started on converting my 2000 tacoma to fourwheel drive, and I was wondering if a 2000 transfercase would bolt up to my tranny, or do i need to buy a new one with a transfercase built on it. I'm planning on doing a 4wheel conversion with a solid axle. If any of you have any info i would greatly apprciate it if you could help me out. Thank you.

The 4x4 trucks use a different tranny on the manual trucks. I am not sure about the autos, but I am pretty sure there is a tail adapter to connect it to the transfer case.

If you do this, it might be easier to get the tranny also.

The ECU boxes are different as well as the wire harness, but you might be able to get around this.

its pretty simple to go from an auto to an auto. i'm 95% sure that the t-case wont just bolt up to your prerunner transmission. try to find a 4wd trans and t-case from whatever year your taco is. that way everything will plug right in and you wont have to mess with the ecu at all.

i did the same thing except i used the stock ifs 4wd. if you have a body lift, it will be easier to get to the top bellhousing bolts, otherwise get a 3' extension and a wobble. hopefully your 4wd trans will come with a speed sensor(mine didnt so i have no speedo/odo and i have a ce light)

if you have any more questions, just spit em out lol

If I was you and I was going that far, Id get an adaptor from Marlin Crawler and put an older toy tcase (or two :D ) behind it. Gear Driven and almost bullet proof transfer cases. Then all you need is a D60 (or d44 I guess) with a passenger side drop.
