Put the correct transfer case in it and the problems will be gone.

I really like the difference in highway rpm my truck was turning 3000 at 60 now 2600 at 60 an has a huge difference in power on high end

I just realized that the speed sensor on the exploer I got my case from is on rear diff instead of trans is their a way to adapt

There probably is but you would need to go to a transmission shop for it to be done. Some switching of tail-shaft housing may be able to be done.
