I have a 1989 supercab ranger 4x4 with a 2.9 liter. its got the dana 28 in the front and the 7.5 in the rear, i got a dana 35 for the front and a 8.8 for the rear off of a 1994 ranger. i believe i will have front drive shaft issues and im not sure what to do. if you know of any other problems or any ideas on the front let me know thanks

You will have to shorten your current front driveshaft 1".

Or simply upgrade your t-case to a 13-54, then the stock D35 front shaft will fit.

would that be a straight unbolt and bolt on new one, for the 1354 tcase, and how difficult would it be to put a manual tcase in?

Unbolt the old, bolt up the new.
The harder part will be FINDING a manual 1354 case, they are not real common after Ford decided to make the manual setup a "delete" option for the automatic crap. An auto 1354 case should work with your existing touch-drive controller however.
