I'm sorry, I'm sure this must've been covered, but my search parameters must be off..

I am stripping a 93 to get the motor, but everything else is there, the body is shot. I am going to look at a 94 2wd tonight. I am thinking the swap should be fairly easy, right?

Thanks

Transmission
Transfer case
Shifter assembly
Front axle
2 driveshafts

As long as you aren't worried about the indicator lights, which may be a non issue on a 93/94, not sure, then it is that easy yes.

Using an aftermarket shifter instead of the crap factory one makes it a LOT easier.

While you're at it, I'd highly suggest doing some upgraded motor and transmission mounts.

Way easier while the engine is out of the car.

Yep, that's it, and having a full parts vehicle there to grab everything from makes it a lot easier, and being of similar years, even more so!

I just got done swapping everything from a 91 to a 96 and had to change several sensors engine wise, and a friend and coworker swapped everything from said 96 to a 2wd 98 and converted to 4wd and also had to change some sensors. There's a story there, but this is your thread, so I'll just point out that the only things we ran into were with the motor, so swapping everything else will be a direct swap. I will mention later models do have differences in the transmissions, but that won't be an issue for you.
