Exclamation nissan hardbody 4x4

I just recently bought a 1991 nissan hardbody 4wd for $50 that just needs a clutch and other minor things. It has 2.4l l4 with the 5 speed ca41 axles with 4.11 gears and with 1 or 2 inch lift I'm still trying to find out what transfercase it has. So if any one knows what transfercase it is let me know. I also got a question what is inter locks is?

tx10 2.1 low.

Interlock is so you dont have to press the clutch pedal.

The 2.4L 4cyl came with R180 front axle and a C200 rear axle. The 4cyl TX-10 has a less splines than the V6 TX-10. (at least it did in the 1987 - 1989 editions with the Z24i motor)

I have heard that the C200 is a weak rear end, but mine has lasted 250K miles and some mild abuse offroad.

The tx10 with a 4cyl has 24 spline input all years. A v6 has 30 spline. Same case from 86-2004 all vehicles. Slight difference on auto vs manual on the input seal.

Not very due to limits on up/down travel and weaker components. most IFS can handle up to a 3.5 rated trail on a scale of 5, but damage is likely. dual lockers will help.

I don't know if it was just me being young and stupid or what but the last hard body I had was a PITA to take the tranny out. I ended up having to take the torsion bars off to get it out. But like I said I was young and probably being stupid at the time. I think it was a 92 or 93. I can't remember which.

Just loosen the adjusters and remove the long bolts. Make sure you have the weight of the front on jack stands first. Put jack stands under the frame. behind the front wheels.

You shouldn't have to, I don't think. PM me your e-mail address and I can hook you up with some info.
*EDIT: Nevermind, says right in the procedure that you have to remove them. Gotta fool with the exhaust if you have a V6, so you're lucky there.

What size tires are you going to run? Cause CV's and hubs will be your next weak point.

And, you want to go four link in the rear, but you have difficulty changing a clutch? If its gonna be a crawler, just throw some lift springs or some 63" chevys an wheel it, if its gonna be a pre-runner, go with some spring under 64" deavers.

It will be fine, I run 4.56's in the front and 4.63's in the rear. Some toyota guys run 5.29's in the rear and 5.38's in the front.
