New to board and 7.3L ownership. trans question

My transmission is starting to act up, and I'll probably need a rebuilt one, or just simply another one. Some mechanics say my problem is electrical and in the dash somewhere, some say its in the transmission. its been a major headache.

I have a 2000 f250 4x4 extended cab 6 3/4 bed 7.3L automatic. I normally use it as a daily drive and occasional tow for 7000lb load.

I haven't installed a transmission before, but i'll have time this summer and people to help.

I found a decent price on a rebuilt 4r100 out of town, but the guy hasn't gotten back to me yet with any details (transfer case, torque converter, ...) other than it ha a wiring harness.

I also found a local f250 that has a wrecked side and needs engine work, but he says the transmission is good. It is a 2001 f250 2wd extended cab long bed 5.4 triton v8 automatic. I understand its the same basic transmission, but i've got 4wd and the 7.3L.

My main question is this: Will these just mesh right in with my transfer case and stock driveshaft or will i have to invest serious cash in some other components?

Thanks to all that help me out.

It's possible but work will be required, afaik the trans hump is much higher, need a clutch brake assembly, and PCM
