The short answer is that it should fit fine. I installed an 08 auto transfer case into my 07 6sp. Many others have also installed them.
The long answer is that the parts catalog shows different part numbers depending on auto trans Vs. Manual. Looking at both transfer cases, I don't know of anyone who has found a difference between them. The parts numbers for the case halfs are the same for the auto and manual versions.
Have fun on your conversion.
From 2008 Parts Manual
Part # 52111013AH - Auto Trans
Part # 52853412AC - 6 sp Manual
you should be fine.. i also did the conversion.. really isn't to bad.. i was also told at first that auto and manual were different cases.. but they are interchangeable.. good luck their are a few writeups on here of people who also have done the conversion, look them up they are very useful for what you are doing. search 2wd to 4wd.. a bunch of threads will come up

any update on how the install went? I'm looking at buying someone's Rubi case but he bought it second hand and doesn't know if its from an auto or manual tranny.
