None as far as I know
Most Fords used Borg Warner(BW) transfer cases, but Borg Warner transfer cases were also used on GM but had different model numbers, seen here: https://www.f150hub.com/drivetrain/borgwarner-id.html

Different model number usually means different input spline count and bolt pattern

GM tended to used New Process(NP) transfer cases, and Ford did use these as well, an NP205 was used in both Fords and GMs but I believe that have different input shafts

My credo
it is easier to fix and understand than "her"
What axle.???.

.if your pumpkin is on the dumb side of the truck...use the Chevy dumb side t case...

.if your pumpkin is on the smart side of the truck...use a Chevy 241 t case with the wormy ass 27 spline input for the th350



From there ..get a clocking ring and you can use the jeep which is best...or ford 208 with the 27 spline input shaft from the Chevy swapped in.

Unless you want a 205. . Same deal. Ford unit .. Chevy input

If you don't have time to do it right will you have time to do it over?
Nevermind. I thought someone was willing to swap you a Ranger for a grenade/SBC and I was going to say grab it before he sobers up.

I would have to double check, but I believe I have an extra 241C dr. side drop you could have. I stole the short yoke off of it. Shipping would probably be more than buying one local to you though.
