Question Converting Manual 4WD to Electronic Pushbutton 4WD

Recently, a volunteer organization in my town purchased a fully loaded 2005 Ford F350SD XLT 6.0L Diesel, Automatic, Crew Cab pickup. The truck was purchased through another company that deals with emergency vehicles and was "supposed" to be optioned like a Lariat, except not having leather seats of course.

They missed 1 option however, the pushbutton 4WD. Of course this was discovered a little too late and the emergency truck company had already cut holes in the bumper and well as drilled 4 holes in the roof for a lightbar, so returning the truck was out of the question.

At this point, everyone is basically blaming everyone else and taking each other to court but its looking like the volunteer organization is going to have to eat it on the '05 truck.

My question is, would it be possible to purchase the correct transfer case and dash switch to resolve this issue, assuming its that easy?

I would have to imaging Ford does not have a seperate wiring harness just for the electronic shift trucks, so there "should" be an unused plug under there, as well as behind the dash cluster.

Does anyone have information as to weather or not this would work and/or how it would be handled?

Any information would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

Is it mandatory that they have this feature? That is a pretty sticky situation.
