Default New Owner 00 F150, hub conversion question

Just bought a 00 F150 4WD Ex Cab Auto, with the factory Off Road package. Never been a big fan of Auto anything especially hubs, so I have a few questions.

Is there a manual hub conversion kit?

The T-Case is is full time, part time, solenoid fork engaged?

Is there a manual 4WD shift conversion?

Googled briefly but since Im new I'm not sure how to weed the trash from the good stuff... Thanks, JML.

never been a fan of auto stuff either. i don't think you'll find a manual hub conversion for these trucks without spending alot of money. as to the t-case i believe it's a part time unit due to the fact of having 2 speeds (high range and low range). same with the manual shift conversion- not without alot of money. a manual shift was available from ford (and still is) for your truck,so maybe talk to them.

manual t-cases have been around for a long time. my 97 150 had it, my 93 rangers had them, my 89 150 had one.

Does anyone know who makes the T-Case, Borg Warner, New Process, etc. Are there different T-Cases based on year and model?

Thanks that helped alot, According to these guys its a Borg warner 4406, but theres some variations between them, Im gonna guess the difference between the DTS419-2 and the DTS420-2 is entirely external for the shift mechanisms, I'll let you know what I find.

1999-2005DTS420-2BW4406(W/o Torque on Demand) (electric shift) w/o speedo holeDTS4406
$950.00
$350.00
1999-2005DTS419-2BW4406(W/o Torque on Demand) (manual shift) shift on fly, w/speed sensor hole
$968.75
$350.00

my guess is that the manual shift has the lever in the cab and the electric shift has the rotary dial on the dash.

Thats why I was wondering, i guess i should have worded my question a little better, more along the lines of do they have the electronic shift, cuz all the trucks from 2002 and up ive seen, at least the 1997 to 2003 body style have manual. im sure they do, but I can honestly say I havent seen any. Im new to the 150's so I dont know much about them.

you'll get lots of edumacation here. i haven't seen to many either besides mine. could be that's what the consumer wants,that way ford can up the price for the convenience of turning a dial. my wife's expedition 00 has the dial switch,but i don't think the manual shift came in it anyways.
