Default need trans+transer case help

im going to make my truck from 2WD to 4x4 im going to get a 78 or 79 donner truck put the 44 up front use the coil buckets and coils get about 8" of lift get a leaf kit in the rear to match. the one prob im running into is the trans n transfer case

less than 3,000 miles ago i had my trans rebuild 4R70W 2wd. i was wonder if i could swap a tail shaft or put an adapter on to throw the transer case out of a 4x4 verison of my truck on? or do i have to get a 4x4 4R70W with the transfercase?
