The transfer case and hubs aren't conditional...

Meaning you can change the hubs to manual or the transfer case to a manual case..

But, if something is manual (hub or case, or both) you will have to manually engage that device to get 4x4...

For example.. If you put on manual hubs, and engage the transfer case into 4wd low range, you will actually be in 2wd low range until you engage the hubs...

As Maniak so well put it, you can change one without changing the other. Be aware that changing from auto to manual lockouts requires changing the bearing locknuts, as they are specific to the type of lockout. (If you attempt to run manual lockouts on auto locknuts, your wheel will fall off. Don't ask me how I know........) A quick search should point you in the right direction as to what you will need to do the conversion.

A manual t-case is also easy, but requires the cutting of a hole in your floor, something many are scared of. Other than the shifter location, it is a bolt in swap. (You will have to do a little wiring to make the 4x4 and Low Range lights come on, but that is optional) Again, many threads have been written about this swap as well, a search is in your best interest.

I have done both swaps to my truck, and have been nothing but pleased.

try your local salvage yards first, as shipping is expensive. Any manual shift 1354 will work. Don't let the salvage yard sell you a 1350, as they use a slip yoke front that is a lot less desirable.
