83 chevy runnin gear to jeep ?

found a old 83 chevy pretty cheap, considering swapping transfer case to axles out to put in my 87.....powered by a Mercedes diesel.....

fairly easy swap ? I am assuming swapping that much out, even if front drive shaft was on wrong side it would not be a issue ??

An adapter to mate to your trans, outboard the springs, and a really good exhaust place that can do custom bending. Cause I'm pretty sure that the diesel has a passenger side exhaust, and it now has to go over to the drivers side, because of the chevy t-case.

Probably get that swap done if you do the labor yourself (except for exhaust) for around $500, then figure in another $500 for a custom exhaust, then you have a really cool ride.
