Default 2wd m50d-r1 to 4wd tailhousing

I have researched a little bit and I believe that it is possible. Just wanting to confirm this and/or deny this. Thank you for your help.

Technically, yes.

The output shafts are different lengths. They should be the same spline count. I do not know if simply cutting a bit off the end would suffice (OR which one is shorter/longer). More often than not I am told to replace the 2wd output shaft with a 4wd one (which requires disassembling the transmission).

But everywhere I've heard, you will run into some kind of output shaft length issue.
