Excursion 12v 47rh swap

Hi guys this is my first post I have been reading this forum for some time now. Im getting some money to start my project and i have some questions and I know that there other posts around that talk about excursions swaps but none talk about a12v with a 47rh. Without that said.
What kind of trans mount adaptation I have to do with a 47rh?
What would better to get a v10 or 7.3L diesel excursion?
Its going to be 4x4. Do I have to switch the input on the t case?
If I get the 7.3L would I be able to use intercooler and trans cooler?
With a 12v what kind of electronics im looking to make the ford dash work?

Thanks for all your help all your comments would be really appreciated

I appreciate ur post a lot I mention the 47rh because I bought a donor truck from a friend of mine 95 ram2500 12v 47rh 2wd so I figure I just have to get a of housing for it.
Do u know if I could swap housings or do I have to do the of internals also?
Also if I could get my hands on a 2500 tcase would've be better? I figure since I have to modify the drive shaft I would just put a dodge sliding joke.
What u think?
Look forward talking to u about our builds

Im a dodge mechanic I will rebuild the trans myself. I just has never converted a 2wd to 4x4 before.
About the ex I have been looking and the cheapest that I could find are 2000-2002 v10 4x4 im going to look im the auction with a friend to see what I find.
Thanks for ur help keep posting

It may have been a faulty rear trans seal or the tcase input doest reach all the way in.
What combination u have

I thought its was a nv273 but np273 I don't recall that one came out of a v10 also check the depth or length of the tcase shaft going into the trans and make sure it reaches the seal.

It doesn't support the seal but it rides on the seal and it seals with the smooth part of the shaft.

hi guys im back finally got my truck yes a truck i know i started this as an ex in mind but i found this 01 f250 7.3 diesel 4x4 in better conditions and cheaper.
with that said my next question for all u 12v racing experts im trying to build my motor from my 94 2500 donor truck which has 220k miles the motor is in really good contions i got the truck from my buddys dad that he had it since 60k miles.
I want to buy a good rebuild kit and some nice pistons and get like a 4k gsk with the hd valve springs and a lift pump also some injectors and a 66mm turbo.
my goal is to be aroud 500-600 HP i would be super happy
Also behind that im planing on building the 47RH with a full rebuild kit from suncoast and a billet triple clutch tc.
Also where should i buy my conversion parts since im not using ford trans i only want like the ac hoses and motor mounts and the np273 input tach kit alternator etc..
With that said i would like some input and opinions and all of them would be gratefully appreciated.

this is the rebuild kit i found
