2wd to 4wd conversion

I'm sure this has been covered and I just can't find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I have a 1995 F250 with the ZF trans. The driveline brake on the back of the trans is shot and instead of getting an $1200 reman one I'm going to pick up at BW 1356 t case and bolt it up.

Now that will get me back on the road. This spring I'm looking at maybe trying to pull off a swap to a TTB50.

Any info on that swap?

Thanks,
Drew

Skip the TTB50 and put a Dana 60 in it.

I would if I didn't have to fab up the mounts. The TTB50 is a direct bolt in from what I keep reading.

This truck will never go offroad. It just pulls the jeep. I would be nice to be able to lock the hubs and make it up the hills in my town when it's snowy though.

I could have my local welder fab me up some brackets. I guess that's what I'll do if I can't find a TTB50.

I'll have to do a write up no matter which way I go . . . I'm shocked that there isn't one.
