4x4 manual hubs vs automatic modern hubs

Post by bthood »

Hey everyone,
Ive probably got a stupid question. I found a divorced transfer case from a Nissan 4x4. Its older but I think it might work. My question is this, I have a factory front diff from an 05 Ford Sport Trac. The front axels on the Nissan are manual locking hubs. Will it matter if I use the Ford diff that's automatic vs the Nissan that's the old get outside and lock each axel? I don't know a lot about mixing parts so I'm a little slow on 4x4 issues. Any help, advice or suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks!
Brian
