Question Electric to manual transfercase swap

I got electric shift transfer cases in both my rangers right now but I want to swap one out to a manual shift one if not both of them. There both 1998 Reg. Cab V6 3.0 Rangers, has anyone on here done a swap or even know if it is possible to do it?

It is possible, they make the same t-case in a manual version. The hard part is finding one, and then of course cutting a hole in your floor.

Does anyone know if there is a aftermarket manual transfercase that fits or works in a 98 Ranger?

You don't have to cut a hole in the floor. All you need to do is get the tranny inspection plate from a manual case donor truck and switch it with yours. You'll need to get the floor boot and bezel as well. I'll admit though, both can be tough to find.

The only aftermarket cases are the stak and atlas cases but you're looking at a couple grand for one of those.

I would like to do the same on my 94 4.0V6 Extended cab. I dont know much about 4X4 systems in fords (i know a little about jeeps).

Can anybody point me in the right direction towards some info on doing this?
