The 05 transfer case will bolt right up. The 4l80e will also bolt up, but you'll only have 5 bolts instead of 6. You'll have to de-burr the shift shaft's and swap the NSBU's, check the trans cooler fittings, but I believe both have the same threads into the case. Just keep in mind if you need parts you have a 98 as the harness and EPC solenoid changed in 04. The big hurdle will be the torque converter. The 454 converter is WAY to low a stall for the 6.0l, and if your other trans has many miles you do not want to re-use that converter. Also keep in mind to NOT use dex 6 fluid as the seals in the 98 are incompatible with it. If it was mine I would stick with your 05's trans and have it rebuilt. A trans that has sat for a long time most likely has hardened seals in it. Not to mention the 98 will not have the better high energy clutches in it.
