Cheap twin stick for single gear tcase forward shift only.

Made a twin stick for "free" out of the spare parts I had. Would only work for a single gear case with forward shift. Steal a top shift fork/rail from friend who did duals. Pull the interlock pin and run one forward shift for high/low and top shift for 2/4wd.



Some key stock still needs to be welded to the forward shift rail to keep the shifter engaged.
The rails would be switched if your getting leftovers from a friend who went duals.

Replacing the 4wd shift fork requires removing the case from truck. Remove the 4wd shift detent spring and ball and 4wd shift light switch. remove the output flange, speedo sender and the back two covers. Drive the roll pin out of the 4wd shift fork. Slide fork forward out the front of the case. In the hole where the detent spring and ball were, is a interlock pin. Use a magnet or tip case on it's siide to remove. Put top shif rail in and roll pins. Reassemble and install in truck. Cut new top shift shifter hole in floor and install both shifters. Don't forget OIL!

Oh I understand now....

This is for making a Twin Stick step for ONLY Single T-cases that use a forward shift T-case/Tranny Combination.

So your tranny has the regular 5 speed tanny shifter
And your Low and High Range shifter (forward shift rail).
Then your T-case has the 2wd & 4wd shifter (Top shift rail).

NICE!

We should have a cool new tech tip of the month, starting with this one.

Other than the ttc thread, this is probably the best one I've seen in a while.

thats a great idea. my buddy installed one on his carbed 84, it's bling though from marlin, you would only see it if his cab fell of though. which the way he smashes into rocks, thats a possibility.

actually wouldn't it be less work to swap out the 2wd 4wd shift fork? you would only have to pull the top cover,speedo, detent ball, the rear 2 case pieces, remove roll pin, slide sift rail forward, magnet out the interlockhold the shifter piece into the front case half from the top hole, install 2wd 4wd shift rail, and then reassymble. that way you would be saving the parts you need for converting forward shift t-cases into top shift front cases on non forward shift trucks. sell the low range rods and fork. alos tip, make some shifters that just move forward and back, and sell those 2 you have on there now for 30 bucks a pop.

Thought I said that in post 5? Pics of shift forks are kinda backwards in application. Whatever top shift fork/rod you can find would work.

The high low rod/fork would be easiest to change. Wouldn't have to dissasseble t-case.

I don't like me either. I'm guilty of the same offense, way too often.

this is a cool idea.

but just to be devils advocate, whats the point of twinsticking any case without front drive only...

if you want 2WD low dont lock the hubs

on another side note


MARLIN, HURRY UP WITH THE REAR DISCO CASES!!!

if you want front dig, pull the rear driveline
After you have 2 low at the flip of a lever, you'll never want to get out again. And alot of times you can use 2 low to pivot the rear. Front dig in reverse.

Like the man said, roll up until the corner of the front bumper is against a rock or tree, and blip the throttle to break the rear end loose and swing it around. Usually helps you avoid backing waaay up to do 3 point turns, especially when the way you want to drift the rearend happens to be downhill.
