I would think so. I believe the 5 speeds out of those got swapped out for NV4500's and NV4500's got swapped out for 6spds in the 2nd gens plenty of times that they even made a kit for it.

dunno, but i'm thinking that worst case you'd have to pick up a different engine-to-transmission adapter plate (????).

You need the engine adapter.

You will need a 2nd gen starter. The frame will eather have to be notched or heated and bent up a small amount to clear the 2nd gen starter.

If it is an early model NV5600 with the small input shaft you can reuse the getrag clutch. If its the larger shaft then a different flywheel and clutch. The 1st gen hydr's can be reused with a little fab work.

You will need to MFG the mounting brackets for the transfer case shifter.

Its not to bad of swap. I know a guy that has done it. I'll have to ask on driveshafts.
