doubler for a 92 explorer/ranger

im looking for a company that STILL makes a doubler for a 92 explorer or ranger. i know of a few that used to build one for you if you have the second transfer case. thats fine i will supply that no big deal.

second question.

in my gunk right now i have the electric push button case it works ok but i dont ever take it out of 4x4 low. would it be better when doing the doubler swap to have two cases that are both manual or leave the one i have in? to tell you the truth i hope the answer is gunk the electric, i just dont trust it.
big thanks to all our boys over seas.

Manual t-cases are harder to come by and usually $$$, there are also a few kits out there that bolt a shifter in place of the motor, but are also ~$300 if I can remember correctly.

D.D. Machine "Duffy", makes a kit for the 1350/1354 with the block off plates and shaft. The front case (crawl box has to be a manual) the rear can be electric or manual.

Get manual cases, the electric will leave you stuck in the middle of nowhere. Ask me how I know.

Nothing like pulling the motor off the case laying in 6 inches of mud and water at dusk out in the sticks by yourself.

well i dont have to ask because i have done that. but after a few hours of laying on my back in the mud and getting no place, i thought to myself to check the dash mount.
i dont have to explain the rest of the story.

i will check out Duffy first thank you. and also look into the manual shift conversion but i must say i have never herd of someone doing this.

I have been having a hell of a time finding a manual case for mine, definitely interested in other options.

Keep an eye in the junkyards, I've stumbled upon 2 1354 manual cases in places I didn't think they would be.

There are alot of people that keep the electric case in the rear without problems,but after my little escapade I don't trust them.

with the electric one out back would it still be connected to the dash mount? or would i just leave it on all the time and the front case will disengage the front drive line?
hows this work? or is it still the same as a twin stick but one stick is substituted for a push button?





im going to still do the double manual setup but i am just curious.

I disagree. The best way to learn is to go hook your front driveline up to the front case and the rear driveline to the rear case just as you asked. Put them both in low and see what happens!

No problem finding manual t-cases up here. I have six (4-1350's and 2-1354's) currently laying around my shop. The scrap yard a couple miles from my house probably has a dozen or so more laying around and they dont go for shit because there's no demand for them.
