Before I make the offer I wanted to know the range on the pricing.
that tcase with out a linkage is basically worthless. the shifter from ford if probably pretty expensive. if you can get the tcase for 50 i would say buy it then buy a new linkage from ford
If you are thinking of buying the fx4 axle and you plan on wheeling dont buy it. get an explorer axle. you will get the same thing but with disc brakes and an 1.5 inches wider. the fx4 31 spline 8.8 is a custom length axle shaft so if you would ever break or bend one you would have to get one from ford or have a hell of a time finding on at a junk yard. parts for the fx4 axle arent cheap. the explorer axles are dime a dozen and pretty cheap and just as strong.
