Interesting, I'm going to make a new thread to collect more info on the 233/ s10 diff swap if anyone wants to plug in their knowledge. Thanks all for persuading me to take the logical route. :banana:

You can't drive on dry pavement with 4Hi. It will bind when you turn (and demolish the innards)

You can drive on dry pavement with AWD. Also, if you upgrade the NP236's innards with those from a 246, it is potentially stronger. The middle number is the strength rating of the transfer case so the NP233 and NP236 are actually rated to be the same strength.

If you're worried about "the wiring breaking", I assure you, mechanical things break as well. It's just a broken/jammed linkage instead of a replacement encoding motor.

The way I've always looked at this swap is pre 95 vans with the BW t-case should do the mechanically actuated swap and newer vans should do the electronic swap, but it's still up to preference.
