    anything is possible. it comes down to how much time and money you want to spend. IMO, for this truck, its not worth it.

    for me, its not worth spending the money on a major system that already works. if its something that you really want, then it may be worth it to you :)

    my 4x4 system isn't working, it's something electrical, I've replaced two shift motors now and still nothing. I'm seeing some transfer cases I can buy, just wondering if it's possible to replace my push button with a manual transfer case. Would it be as easy as just replacing the transfer case or am I going to have to replace bunch of other stuff in the process.

    It depends on the donor. If its a V6 manual, like yours, it should be a no brainer. You may want to grab the front shaft too though.

    maybe i'm wording this wrong. right now I have push button transfer case, with the 2-4 shift motor on it, it doesn't work, it's gotta be something electrical. I was wondering if I could track down a transfer case that is 'manual' being that you have to physically push it into 4x4 with the lever. I was wondering if i could just put this 'manual' transfer case in and to bypass the 'electrical' issue with mine

    Yes, you should be able too. I understood you the first time. I posted both trouble shooting info for your current set-up, and a components diagram that shows all three t-cases for your truck, (with and w/o e-transfer). :p
