4wd transfer case for f250 4wd conversion

I am converting my 2000 f250 2wd to 4wd. I just bought a donor truck off ebay for 800 bucks. complete rolling frame minus the trans/tranfer case. My question is can I use a manual transfer case in the 2000 f250. I dont know if the harness is in my truck to use the electric case. I know the harness for the selector switch is behind the dashboard but so far I havent seen any harness down by the transmission. If it is not there i guess I will look to put in the manual transfer case. I need to know which year case I can bolt up to my 4r100. Any help would be great.
Chris

You can bolt on the 271 (manual transfer case) or the 273 electronic transfer case to the 4r100 transmission. If I remember correctly, you just remove the tail section and the transfer case bolt right in place. You might need a different tail shaft (I don't have my service manual readily available to check). These are the same transfer cases used on the 6.0l diesels. If you live in a cold climate the electronic shift tends to not work very well in very cold weather. There have been numerous reports of the motor drives failing; I can attest to that, mine finally failed after a few years of very slow or no shifts in cold weather. Just check out the number of shift motors for sale on ebay... it tells the story. Dealers will take you to the cleaners for a replacement and most will swear they never fail... BS. As much as I like the convenience and clean floor of the switch, I may put in the manual TC when I upgrade my truck.

I've got an electronic transfer case for sale if you need one, willing to take offers. I'm swapping my zf6 for an auto and since my truck is 2wd, i don't need it. plus i have to fund the stand alone controller.

the wiring is there but if you have a manual transfer case you will be fine and wont have to wire it up unless you want the 4x4 light to come on when you are in 4 wheel drive but i pretty sure you will know when its in 4 wheel drive.
