yes you have a 1354. you just need a manual transfer case. the 1350 and 1354 are both made in a manual. if you get a manaual 1354, it will be a bolt in with your current driveshaft, you just need to cut the hole for the shifter. if you get a manual 1350, you will need a different front driveshaft because the 1350 takes a slip yoke.

There are two versions of the 13-54, manual and electric. Although they share many internal parts, there are some differences. The biggest problem is that the outer cases are different, one set up for the shift motor and the other for the shift linkage.

Best choice for your 99 would be the 13-54. It is a stronger unit and you should be able to reuse your current driveshaft.

you wont HAVE to switch to AVM hubs. but they will help your reliabilty. what wiring are you talkin about? the cost will be whatever you can get a manual transfer case including shifter for.

any manual transfer case that has a regular yoke for the front driveshaft. not the slip-yoke type.

Look for a manual case from a 91~94 Explorer or a 93+ Ranger.

With all this talk I can't help but wonder if it could be possible for me to do the above to my 04. Back in 2004 I stopped at a used car dealership on my way to Carlsbad Caverns (I worked there that summer, nothing like a nice 3 hr drive to work) when I saw a 4x4 silver ranger. Turned out to be an 03 Level II and every time I see an interior shot of the shifters I can't help but wonder if I could switch from electric to manual. I do like having on-the-fly at times though, but I miss the manual setup (mom's 92 exploder had it).

The manual case can be shifted from 2HI to 4HI at any time just like the auto case. With either, you need to stop to shift to low range.

You should be able to make the swap but the parts would cost a small fortune new. If you could luck into finding a 2002/2003 twin shifter junkyard donor, it would be much cheaper. You do realize that the transfer case itself would have to be changed too, right?

Another problem is the carpet. The hole in yours is probably too large for the bezel and you would need to either live the gap, cover the opening somehow or order a 2003 LII manual carpet.

I'd have to ditch my electric t-case for the manual 1354 correct? It may be something I do WAY down the road. Like if/when I either go SC or 302 swap. For now the 4.0L stock is plenty, but manual t-case is an 04 would be sexy!

Not sure exactly what you mean by regear...

If you want a 13-54 manual case, you would have to swap one in. The outer cases on the 13-54 auto transfer case are different and won't work with a factory manual shifter.

Side note - I heard of a guy who converted an auto case to a home brew manual case by removing the electric shift motor and using 1/2" drive extensions and universal joints to create a linkage of sorts. It was kind of crude but supposedly worked OK. Each 1/4 turn selects a new T-case mode.
