Default Making the switch this spring to a 4 speed

Wishing I had the cash like the rest of you cruisers to do what ever I want to my rig. But I don't, and my banker (wife) ropes me back to earth. But I have decided to upgrade my setup to a 4 speed. Love the 3 speed but want to make it a little more user friendly and drivable in the mountains. Now my 40 is my DD and I don't do alot of wheeling. It sounds like a 4speed tcase and transmission combo is better suited for me. I have acquired a 4 speed transmission and another 3 speed tcase with the correct spline gear to mate them up, 4 speed bell housing and flywheel. I know I still need drive shafts, slave cylinder, shims? and a bearing?. Is it gonna make my life easier to get a 4 speed t-case and remove all the 3 speed vacuum stuff? I have been talking with Ricardo about his experience and what he did. This is going to be a spring project so I have some time to invest in learning and research. What's you experiences and opinions?
