      If you need a transfer case and you don't have the money for an atlas or other options this a cheap and awesome option. A transfer case out of a Bronco 2 automatic or manual tranny. Will fit on the 95-96 transmisson either five speed Mazda R-1 or 4-R55E. It was the best thing I ever did. I blew up six stock Explorer transfer cases then I put the manual Bronco 2 transfer case and I havn't had a problem yet. The only mod I did to fit the case was to modify the front driveshaft from the Bronco to transfer case, shortening it to make it fit. :D

      Its either a BW 1350 or 1354. The 1354 has the front output flange instead of a slipyoke. The 1350 you can pickup anywhere for nothing. The 1354 is more expensive, and the manual version of it is not only hard to find but quite a bit more expensive.

      I swapped the 4405 for a man.1354 - I used the old bolts that held on the 4405.

      Its been a while but I think the easiest way is to remove the tunnel cover from the inside. Then you have access to it from the top.
