converting electric shift T Case to manual?

A month or so back I was on my way to SD for a prarie dog shoot when an incident cause the front drive shaft to split the slip yolk fall out hit the pavement and peel the front output side right off of my TCase. Big ugly mess on the side of I-80.....

Well I bought a TCase and put it in, but there is no power(?) to the switch. My hope is that since the new plug had different colored wires than the original harness we crossed a wire up somewhere. My fear is that when the casing was ripped apart and spit out the back of the truck, one of the wires on up the harness got broke.

Now on to my question. I know on most EShift TCases you can manually shift them with the motor off of the case, can I just cut the hole in my floor out and convert my current TCase to shift manually?

Well I can't help you with your questions I would like to know also. My last truck had the ESOF 4x4 and it was nothing but problems! That was one reason why I sold it and the next truck had the floor shifted 4x4. Good luck!

Do a search in this section. A member did this conversion. I think it would be cheaper to just get a manual case from a wrecked truck

Your best off just swapping the transfer case but you can convert it with limited functionality. The manual stuff is not a direct bolt on for an electric case and the sensor is different. You would also not have a neutral position like you would on a manual case.
