Is there any difference between 04 and 05 transfer case, or they only change AWD control unit and AWD button. I'm asking because my transfer case has cracked and i don't have warranty in Poland and they want $7000 for repair it. I can get 04 used transfer case to US MO and i want to upgrade only control unit and AWD switch to 05. This solution would be cheaper, but i'm not sure it would not break again.

On the outside, it certainly looks identical. I suspect it is, because a redesign of the transfer case would likely mean they'd do it right, instead of compensating for the weakness by reducing it's useability in the software and replacing the AWD switch with one that can't be left on. It gets changed from a rocker to a push button.

Of course, no one told me that, so I was trying to get it to rock like it did before and push it right out of the panel! (Doesn't take much, so don't push too hard!)

You also lose the ability to turn it on and off while moving, which sucks.
