Transfer case swap question

I currently have a borg warner 4405 in my 2000 explorer. The dash has auto,4hi, and 4low on it. My question is, can I put an electric bw-1354 transfer case from a 94 ford explorer? If I bolt my current shift motor onto the transfer case will this transfer case work. Will my auto,4hi,4lo switch be auto=2hi,4hi,4lo instead since it is from a 94? I thought I would throw these questions out there. Hopefully someone will have the answer! Thanks

Do you want to do this solely to obtain 2HI?

No! I pretty much am finding alot better deals on an bw1354 electric transfer cases then the 4405

Also, I dont believe the 1354's have a viscous coupling in them like the 4405's
