So what's this going to cost?
A lot
Seriously though I agree with the outline above that Blazer laid out.
I spent over a year looking for a GM front 60 @ under $1K that was complete and not abused.

You got time so I would wait and watch for a 78/79 Ford front 60.
In the Phx area you will most likely go to $1,500 for a complete unit.
This brings into play just buying an entire rig.
I recently (last fall) missed out on an entire '79 F350 for a $800 (non-running) ranch truck in Silver City because I could not get over there fast enough and the ranch was in foreclosure.

As far as the t-case switch goes, just go aftermarket.
I have almost all of the parts needed for a 203/205 doubler setup that I have been piecing together for several years. I have way more $$ and time into it than I care to admit and it gets worse when you add up rebuilding the 208 twice in that time span.
I should have just bought an Atlas or something similar. At that point drop side does not matter, you can have them setup however you need them.
2000 Infinity QX4, 3.3L, MPFI, 4 speed auto, 2 speed Nissan tcase, Unibody, IFS front, 4 link rear solid axle with 255-70/16s
