2WD Transmission in a 4WD

I found a good low mileage automatic transmission out of a 05 F-350 2 wheel drive truck. My automatic 05 F-350 is a 4x4 and I was curious if it will work in my truck. Seems all I would have to do is put the transfer case on the 2WD transmission. Anybody know if its possible ? Right now I'm having the 3/5 flare shift problem.

Depends if the 2wd tranny has the nose cone or the 4wd style tranny with the yoke bolted on. I swapped my truck from 2wd to 4wd, I used the my same tranny. Post a picture of the 2wd tranny and I can tell you.

Can't get the picture to post, But it does have 4wd style with the yoke bolted on. So basically, I just need to swap the end housings.

It is the same as mine. unbolt the yoke,slide off the yoke and install the transfercase. It is that easy.

Here is a shot of the transmission with the NP271 attached. It sure looks like you can just bolt it on.
