ESOF to manual 4x4?

I was four wheelin the other day and of course got pissed off at my esof system. I was just wondering how easy to find and/or install a 4x4 floor shifter.

'02 F250 with the legendary 7.3L. DP tuner, DIY dual Spectre Diesel Cone air intake, 6" lift with front level, RedHead steering gear, 37x13.5r20 Toyo Open Country MTs, Fuel Hostage rims, straight stock exhaust, custom built rear bumper.

Future mods: rear locker, 4.30s or possibly 4.56s, iron bull front bumper, injectors, ccv mod, turbo rebuild from turboworx, onboard compressor.....

Looking for more mods and upgrades. Feel free to suggest improvements

You need to find a manual transfer case. The ESOF has a "shift motor" that changes the gears.
