Default transfer case interchangeability

i did a quick search but couldnt really find what i was looking for so im sorry if this has been asked before like a million times.

so i have a 2004 Ranger with a 3.0L and more importantly a 5 speed manual transmission.

it has that automatic transfer case and i dont like it. it gets fubar'd too easily and i keep having to constantly fiddle with it. i got it to drop in and out of 4HI real good but 4LO is a constant battle. i loved the manualy t-case in my 95 and was wondering if anyone knows the interchangeability of these? i realize i will have to cut a hole in the floor and some other mods which i am fine with i just want to know if anybody has done this or has some good insight on the subject. i would assume i need a good t-case and probably the front drive shaft ???

almost 2 years ago I was looking for a manual transfer for my 2002 FX4, but I couldn't find it, just only automatic. if you know some one for my 2002 ranger, let me know.

Dual transfer cases, now thats the shit! Check the threads on TRS, they got a pretty extensive transfer case section. That where I saw the stuff on dual T-cases, turns your truck into a tractor!

I believe what you want is a Borg warner 1454 t-case. The only diff. is the shifter. If I remember correctly the stock one is a 1454-E, which means it's electric. Hope this helps.
