You`ll have to tear the case down to pull the shift rail interlock pill. Add a set of shifters and your done. FWIW, I bought a set of shifters from JB Fab and they`re very nice, and a complete kit.

I bought a kit off ebay and love it. I even have 2 low with opening the case up. It's really nice having tight linkage.

This is what I used: http://home.windstream.net/ezduzit/twin20.htm

It was a really nice kit, included two new shift rails, and a set of gaskets to rebuild the unit. My particular kit was design specifically for the T18 and Dana20 combo. He also makes different ones. The plusses: I didn't have to 'modify' the kit to make it work and Don is a good guy to deal with. The drawbacks: You will have to take the whole tcase apart to remove the shift rails and you will not be able to select front wheel (only) low. This is because you do not remove the interlock pills. You will have 4WH, 4WL, RWH, RWL, and FWH. It will also prevent you from putting the front in low and the rear in high (or vise-a-versa). And causing some real problems.

I installed this kit when I did the TeraLow 3.15 conversion. If you go this route, you might as well rebuild the Tcase with new bearings, races, and seals. On a side note, the TeraLow kit was also an easy install. You will have to grind the inside of the case a bit.

The most difficult part of doing the rebuild, IMHO, is getting the end play set on the output shafts. You'll need a dial indicator with a magnetic base/arm to do this correctly.

Oh, and make yourself a 'spanner wrench' to hole the yokes:


You'll need it (and a good sized buddy) to torque them to the 220 ft/lbs the spec calls for.
