Actually if you want push button 4wd, you could swap the t-case into the ranger.

Either some creative wiring, or some combo of junkyard parts to make the gem module shift the t-case would be in order.

Personally if you have a manual shift t-case in the ranger, i would leave it, the electrics can be prone to issues.
