Default 4x4 floor to dash

I've got the 4x4 selector on the floor of my '10 f150 and want to move it to the dash, but I don't have the wiring harness attached to the coin holder like many of the lucky ones out here do. Does anyone know where I might be able to pick one up? And is it just as easy as tapping it into the transfer case? Can someone look on theirs to see where it's attached to behind the dash if it's not too big of a deal?
I'm trying to move it because I want a flow through console, and obviously the floor shifter is in the way.
I couldn't find the thread on here besides the ones with the harness already back there.
Thanks.

I think the transfer case is different in the models with ESOF. yours doesn't have the electric actuator that actually shifts the t-case. There are many different harnesses involved that are different as well. I'm not saying it can't be done but it's not as easy as plugging in the switch and harness.

It's probably easier and more cost effective to buy a Truck with ESOF.

As the other post said you'll need a different TC, wiring harnesses, and the right computer programming to make it work. Oh and a lot of $$$

@Watt-maker @Dieselhunter 44
Thanks for the info. Looks like I won't be switching to a flow through console! Appreciate it!

bet most 4wd owners would rather have the manual shift 4wd lever than electric. i know i would rather have what you have and manual locking hubs to boot. my last real 4wd was 1992 F150 Supercab 4x4 with manual 4wd transfer case and manual locking hubs with front LS, special order. took a 5 acre field to turn around in and got me in the ditches a couple of times because of the front LS.
