T-case mod question : 4lo and 2wd only?

Chances are this has been thought of a long time ago...

For my trail only rig i'd benefit from a simpler transfer shift between 2wd and 4wd. I really don't need 4hi..

Has anyone made a non-twinstick mod to allow this?

Rules say i cannot run a twinstick setup in my class so that's a non-option and the complete stop and slow shift from 4lo to 2hi just takes too long and has too much room for error.


Thoughts?

Yes, it's been covered.

I've never done it, but seems a bit complicated. If I were in your shoes, not able to run twins, I'd have to try it too.

Best I've found explaining it: http://forums.off-road.com/suzuki-ge...low-range.html

You're looking for "2wd Low mod"

Thanks. Actually, i don't really need 2lo either. 2hi would be fine, i just want to be able to shift from 2wd to 4wd faster and more precise.

One side controls 2wd 4wd. The other H N L. I don't see it possible to go from 4L to 2H in on move.

Right.. so the only real option there is to short cut from 4L to 2L. Thanks.

Anyone tried this shifter from RR? http://www.rocky-road.com/2low.html

Problem is the rail slots are offset when you are in 4wd and low, so as stated, it is not a smooth motion. If you are OK with being stuck in low range, I think you can pull the interlock pill, shift the case into low, then pull the shifter out and set the shifter ball back into the 2wd/4wd rail and lock in back in with the locking ring, and just run it that way. You will just be stuck in low. I have not tried this, but seems like it would work. You just may need to fab a stop to keep the lever from trying to go to the lo/hi rail just in case.
