    Yet another ‘04 4.0 to 4.6 Swap

    Hello! I know, this has been asked before. But wait, read on. I have an ‘04 Ford Explorer XLT 4x4 with the 4.0 and a donor with 4.6 AWD. I’d like to keep the 4wd instead of using AWD. When I swap everything over, will the t-case from the 4.0 work with the 4.6? thank you!
