727 to 518 tranny swap for 4x4??

I just found this article about swapping in a 518 overdrive transmission in place of the 727. My questions is 'Did they ever make the 518 for 4x4 applications? I would love to put an overdrive trans in my truck while I have it all apart but I need something I can bolt the transfer case to.

Thanks.

Okay, apparently not much info about this. So I will ask another question along the same lines.

If you did want to upgrade to an overdrive transmission in a 4x4, what would you suggest?
