shifter mounting is absolutely the easiest part of a project like that , if there isn't a hole with just a plate over it then you will simply have to cut one . look for outlines or markings of were it should be and cut there ( car company's don't like to make a bunch of different body's they usually just put panels over the holes or don't punch them all the way .

From a link in the link that was posted earlier http://lists.off-road.com/pipermail/xj-list/2002-February/002053.html
Quote:
You can swap trannies if you have a good 4x4 version, or if you want to save a few bucks get a worn out 4x4 version of your tranny and use the tailhousing and tailshaft from the 4x4 tranny, hooked to your 4x2 tranny. You have to completely rebuild your transmission to do that, however.


Once you've done either of those options, you would then bolt the transfer case to the transmission.
