Borg-Warner T170FT Swap(RTS)

Looking to do a Transmission and transfer-case swap into the CJ3A my step-son and I are going to rebuild. The idea is to make it so he can drive it around town and to work and keep up with traffic. I'll be rebuilding the frozen engine and balancing and blue printing it like I use to do my Dragracing engines. The RTS transmission was fitted to '84-'85 Ford F-150's and Bronco. The shifter is mounted on the top plate and is a 3 speed with 4th being O/D. Being a Borg-Warner the transmission should bolt up to the stock bellhousing. Has anyone here done this swap?
I used the 2wd version in my Flathead powered Street Rod and it fit sweat.
Thanks for any help you can pass my way.

Why not just put an Overdrive on the stock transfer case. It's a fast and easy job.

People think I go out of my way to piss them off.
Trust me, It's not out of my way at all.
