zf-5 tranny swap???

OK I have a chance to buy a donor truck. 96 f350 5 speed 4x4. Want to put the zf into my truck. Are the transfer cases the same? Computer needs swapped also, correct? Any other advice? Thanks guys

Transfer case will work, and definately swap the PCM. Is the parts truck the same cab configuration as your current truck? I ask this because you will need front and rear drivelines as they wil be different length. Any other questions let me know, I did this swap a while back.

guy decided he wants too much. But, why would the cab configuration matter? drive shaft lengths from a reg. cab 5 speed to a cc 5 speed is the same isnt it? Also, can I use a zf5 from a 351? or are they different? Thanks
