superduty zf 5 to 4x4, Can it be done? looking for solid info.

So a quick question. My folks have a 89 f 350 4x4 C&C dually w/a 460 / c6, and its dead. The solution that we came up with is to put a 7.3 idi / zf 5 in it.
(I should note that we found a good running 89 superduty with our motor and transmission in it)

Now the question. Could a guy swap a rear tail shaft housing from a 4x4 onto that transmission and hook it up to that transfer case? Thanks!

Future plans include diy Traction bars, and zf5 swap.

If the superduty trans has a parking brake mounted on it the answer is yes. Remove the parking brake assembly and bolt the transfer case in place. If it does not have the parking brake on it then no, would be a complete tear down to replace the output shaft.
