Might consider it. Also, for reference that should be a 42-model - can you confirm this? Pretty sure it was 88-95 were ZF 42's, and 96-97 or something like that was ZF 47's. Difference is torque capacity. Just slightly curious.
I just weighed my ZF on a bathroom scale and it looks like it weighs around 175 Lbs. So it definately needs to go truck freight. If you want me to get a quote give me your zip code and I can get a freight quote.
I checked and a new 4x4 main shaft cost around $300 and the 4x4 tailshaft housing is around $115.
