Another 2wd to 4wd edge conversion...questions

I will be converting my truck to 4wd. I have everything I need except one issue...The transfer case. Here's the deal. I parted a 4wd truck and have all the parts but the trans is bad and the transfer case is electric. I have a spare 2wd trans so thats not a big issue. I just have to tear them down to swap the output shaft. I have the 3rd frame mount I will need to weld on. The only other issue is the transfer case. I have the electric 1354 case. Of course there is no wiring. My delimma is wheather to wire the electric transfer case or go manual. If I go manual I know I will have an issue with the front driveshaft and I will have to find the correct shifter, floor plate and boot. Economically the cheapest way is to wire it up becuase I already have the transfer case. If I go manual can I swap the front output shaft and cup for the newer style driveshaft? If so which transfer case do I get?

any thoughts?
