4R100 question.

I tried searching but got 1000 post.

I currently have a 01 4x4 ccsb that im planning to sale. It has a bts in it, i bought a 4R100 out of a gas F250. Will a gasser trans swap into a diesel? also can a 4x4 trans be swapped into a 2wd? I was wanting to keep my bts to swap into a 2wd truck that i plan to buy.


Thanks for any and all answers.

Re: 4R100 question.

gas to diesel, no.

4wd can be put into a 2wd, keep the transfer case on and find the correct rear drive shaft length.

You can break down the 4wd trans, and convert it over to 2wd. You'll need the 2wd rear housing and correct output shaft.

Re: 4R100 question.

Dirk mind explaining the trans a big more to me?

So i can keep my 4wd bts and just swap it into a 2wd truck with a different drive shaft? What model drive shaft would i need or is it a custom one? Also is their anything negative side to having a 4wd transfer case on a 2wd truck?

Breaking down and converting sounds a 4wd to a 2wd seems a bit more costly than getting a new drive shaft. Im going to call brian soon and just ask him about everything(should have already did that).


I thought all the super duties had a 4R100 in them and was hoping a 4wd out of a gasser would work in my truck. I found a 4R100 for a gasser for 100 bucks that i was going to put into my truck and save the BTS for the next truck.

Thanks again

Re: 4R100 question.

You can have a 4wd trans in a 2wd truck all day long. You'll need to find the correct 4wd rear drive shaft for your wheel base because it is much shorter than the 2wd drive shaft due to the transfer case.

Call Brian and he can give you details.
