first you need to make sure your tail housing on your transmission has the holes for the manual t-case linkage.....

The linkage bolts to the two threaded bosses cast into the trans extension housing - not all Ranger transmissions have the bosses.

You'll need the BW1354 manual case with the correct output flanges plus the linkage, boot and shifter. Then you'll need to either cut the floor plate or find one made for a manual case.

Its real easy. Just be prepared to search a good bit for the console and boots to cover that hole you cut in your floor.....:D

I drove around for over a month with no console or boots, just a big fat gaping hole in the floor. Its definitely doable, but man it sure does get loud and hot with that hot tranny tunnel air blowing right in your face.

I'm transfer case ignorant so here is my question.


From what I understand in this thread, if the tranny tail housing has the boss's on them, then one could use either a auto or manual transfer case assuming all the associated parts are there right?
