2000 Ford Expedition Question: transfer case

Neither, really. Obtaining a new one is the best move. If you cannot do that, I would go used; I'm not familiar with many folks who have successfully rebuilt one of these transfer cases in shop, usually based on the level of damage found to the internal components. -
