Just wanted to let everyone know that Off Road Design can fab. up atwin stick kit for the SM465/205 combo. I talked to a badass named James, and he converted the bracketry from their 203/205 doubler twin stick kit to use it on the 205 only. I know a lot of people have been curious about these, and i hope ORD will start making these as a production item.

it was $170, plus shipping. includes dbl boot, 3/8" heim-jointed shifter rods, bar stock shifters, and polyurethane bushing on shifter boss. IMO a lot better than the Currie D300 kit for only a little more $$.

Two comments: First, ORD does make a nice twin-shift kit, but it seems quite expensive to me. But shoot, they are competing with the Curries, right. Cost to build an identical set-up is about $75.

Secondly, the ORD kit gives you two sticks, but does it truly give you the twin shift capability of engaging front and rear drive independently, as in an Atlas. That is possible with the NP205 but requires modification of the range shift rail in the NP205 proper. I am sure ORD does not provide that capability in their "kit".

I made a comment on this in another post recently and people said that 205s can lock independently in front or rear drive. I knew you had to modify the 205 but i'll bet most people don't know that and are destroying their t-cases because of that.

So if you have a doubler and want a twinstick 205 with it, how do you go about making the triple-stick? <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0">

there is not a whole lot to include here and the only thing he would have to include in the kit is directions of what to take out or what to modoify(shift rail)I would have purchased my triple stick from ORD but it was not available when i needed it so i just made my own. The only thing with a 205 modified like this is the driver has to remember what he is doing cause (duh) you could have the front and rear in opposite ranges.

If you modify the shift rails rather than removing the interlocking pills you cannot have 2 ranges at once. If you do niether you can't get front wheel only or rear wheel low. Kinda defeats the purpose if you don't modify the inside of the case. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Scoutaholic is right on. You do not remove the interlock pills because that would allow the front and rear to be placed in different ranges. What you do is widen the detents in the range shift rail. A copy of a Petersen's article on how this is done can be read
here

I agree it is a good idea to modify the shift rails rather than remove the(pills)but to be honest i had my twin sticked my transfer case a couple of years before peterson published that article and basically as long as driver knows what not to do you wont have a problem.But once again it would idea to follow the article
