i was just woondering if you could switch out the auto trac cases for the 2001+ hdcases which use the pushbuttons but no auto trac. would it just plug into the computer and the buttons would work instead of having to put a lever in the floor. it could be an alternative than the other t-cases used.

would they be hard to find? because that sux that the autotrac will burn up because on the chevy hds and the ford f150s all you have to do is bolt the axle on and hook it up because this guy on ftw is doing his f150 swap and he said the you can use the same 79 dana 44 or 60 and its driver side pumkin as the chevys swap but on their trucks the transfer case just bolts right up.

Well it will take more work than just plugging the wires in and it working... You will need to find the transfer case control module for the t-case you plan on swapping in and then it will have a different wiring harness so you need one of those too... Then you need the switch assembly to run it or modify yours to work it.

well you can find a 241 and just bolt it up. It will be floor shifted but I like that better, more reliable. If your doing sfa I would hope your doing it for strength and reliability, not looks and ease of use (hence push buttons)

but it would be an alternative for people with the center console unless the stick will fit right next to it.

I've never seen that setup, infact a guy with a floor shift, when he went to put a stock console in, had to hack up his extension piece to get it to be able to be used. Check out www.chevy4x4trucks.com and look at his old truck.

Well the pics are loading for me, but you should be able to bend the shifter enough so that you wont have to mod teh center console at all, or at least very very little.
