no shift motor, that wasn't an option until 03 when they went to the 271 t-case

It’s close but they fit. I’ve heard some guys say they’ve had to beat on the frame rail but mine fit with a 1/4” to spare.

I seen a guy try to put one in a 98 and it would not fit. Unless he beat the frame rail in

I’m not sure if my setup will help any. My 271 is attached to a zf6. Although center line remains the same, driveline and crossmember etc. won’t be close to what you are trying to accomplish. I can take a pic if you want.

maybe I could just weld on a handle at the transfer case. that would have me to crawl under. or a custom shift lever under the seat.
