    So I confirmed the 2009-2014 5.7 awd driveshaft front half slides right into the rear half of the 05-08 AWD driveshaft. Once the output shaft on the transmission is cut down, everything should fit together with a few shorter transfer case bolts. Then I have to figure out the 5V switched setup to activate it.

    Any chance you could manufacture a spacer?

    Just completed the swap. Using a switch with 12V to turn the clutch on and off. Tested it on jack stands, and so far so good!

    So total parts needed: Front half of rear 2009-2014 awd 5.7 driveshaft (slip onto rear portion of your current driveshaft), 2009-2014 5.7 transfer case, extra transfer case to trans bolts, cut ~1" off the end of the transmission output shaft, and a way to switch the clutch on and off (I chose a 12v on-off switch).

    I'd also recommended to check the gear on the trans that slides into the transfer case for wear/play. The nut was loose on mine and the splines/gear was worn, so I swapped on a lower mile gear and torqued it to spec with sealer on the splines and restaked the nut.

    Have you taken a test drive?
    Any binding when the transfer case is inactive? Or active?

    Did you machine the trans shaft?

    Any issue using the oe front shaft?

    I will have to drive it soon. It wont chatter in 2wd as I can turn the driveshaft by hand, but I'm sure it will chatter just like a 4wd setup with the 12v switched on.

    I used a cutoff wheel to cut the end of the shaft off.

    The front driveshaft is the same from 2005-2014.
