Some adapters utilize the stock tailhousings and adapt it to the new tranny with a plate, but many have a whole new custom tailhousing that incorporates a mounting foot for the tranny, a place to relocate the transfer case linkage, and the shortest possible overall length of the tranny assembly.

However, using a new tailhousing rather than a spud shaft provides a stronger link.
