Terry, IIRC the ZF-5 housing is shorter than that of a E40D. As far as I know the front drive shaft has to be shortened, and the rear lengthened.

To the OP, you're transfer-case will work with the ZF.

^^^^ But now you mention it, there's a linkage plate for the t-case lever that's (IIRC) shorter on the ZF5 installation than on the E4OD. T-case shifting will be wonky if you use the wrong linkage. IIRC, some guys have just fabricated the longer/shorter one as needed; it's just a plate of steel about 6" long with a hole at each end.

Gotcha.
I remember there being a difference from when I helped a friend do his swap. Couldn't remember if he had the drive-lines modified or just shimmed the carrier bearing for the rear.

my cousin's reused the rear shaft there was some fitment issues with the front shaft not wanting to line up properly. as for the electronics if you can get the trans harness and pcm from the donor truck that would be great. if no you can splice two wires together in the and trick the pcm into thinking it is in neutral to bypass the neutral safety switch. on the clutch pedal you can do the same thing to make the pcm think that the truck has the clutch pushed in
