96 also has the CAD system. (center axle disconnect). 97 don't.
Thinking that could be a good mod for AWD. Can't be too hard to wire up a vacuum switch to activate it, and you have full 2wd. Now, there could be an issue with the truck moving in park, same as removing the driveshaft. Good parking brake is a must. Anyone try that?
