Check it out. When my buddy kerry wanted it he called marlin and they said that it was not economical for them to make it. So kerry went to the drawing board and made his own. I wish I could give you pics but I do not have any way to post them. because he found a very cost effective way of building it it might be worth you time and a dime to call him.

We welcome NEW parts vendors,.....BUT it's just the way you did it looked way to much like spam. when did he call Marlin? He sells FROFAB's for a while now, and FROFAB's had it out for a time at $200. If you want to spam, at least list some kind of price...what do you think is <font color="red">"very cost effective"</font c>????????????? oh ya welcome to the BB <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

brain's setup


Twin Stick
100% bolt in -- no welding required.
Longer lengths available to accommodate body lifts. Easily done with common hand tools.
Minor transfercase modification required.

Twin-Stick Kit features:
A completely sealed Twin-Stick assembly
Detailed instructions for the minor transfer case modification
This shifter does not use old, worn stock parts. This is a completely new unit.


Product Information:
The Twin-Stick allows the use of two-wheel drive, low range, and a true neutral. With the factory shifter configuration, the neutral only disengages the transfer case from the transmission. It actually has the front and rear drivelines hooked together, so if you are towing using this, you are not wearing the transmission, but both the front and rear drivelines are spinning. The rear driveshaft can be removed for towing, however this still spins the gears in the rear axle. For the ideal towing setup, check out our Full-Floater Conversion Kit.
The two-wheel drive low range is great for people with a front locker. As those of you setup with a front locker know, the locker keeps pulling you straight when you are trying to turn. With the Twin-Stick, just moving the 2/4 lever into two wheel drive, disengages the front axle, and the locker is no longer pulling you straight. This makes tight turns much easier, while allowing the slow speed control of low range. By having two low, the front axle is relieved from undue stress, and four wheel drive can be re-engaged, even while moving, by just throwing one lever.




FAQ’s:
Q: Will the Twin-Stick fit my vehicle?

A: It fits the transfer cases found behind the 4 cylinder motors, pre-Tacoma. There is not one available for the automatic tranny/t-case combinations. Some tranny/t-case setups have both shifters in one plate. It won’t work in these because it includes a new mounting plate. It does fit the rear cases of dual transfer case setups.

Q: What do you need to know about my truck when I order a Twin-Stick?

A: I need to know what tranny/t-case you have, this can be easily identified by the motor and the year. Turbo, carbureted, EFI, and pre 83 are all qualifiers, assuming your tranny/t-case match the motor, or you know what vehicle they are out of.

Q: What’s involved in the modification to the transfer case?

A: You must drain and remove the transfer case from the vehicle. Once removed, the modification takes at most 45 minutes. You must remove the Interlock Pin. This pin keeps the 2 shift rails from sliding independently and engaging two-wheel drive, low range. It requires only a couple wrenches, hammer, and a small punch. The procedure is described in the detailed instructions.

Q: Can I use the Twin-stick with a dual case setup?

A: Yes, it just installs in the rear case.

Price:
$199.00 *

* Custom lengths at no additional charge.

the only way to advertise your product is to send it in for a product review. If you do we'd be glad to run an article for you and link it from the front page - but please don't spam the site otherwise..

The one that Marlin sells is the one that FROR makes. Marlin is a distributor for Front Range Off Road.

Guys, I'm sorry I did not meen to start any static. The set up has been in his Geo tracker for about 8 months now. It went in there with the turbo tranny and dual transfercases and the adapter that he had made to bolt it all to a tracker 1.6 liter. I can't post picks because I don't have a scanner or a digital camera. I'm just trying to help out my friend that does not have the internet. I'm not trying to piss any one off but what could a phone call hurt

Kinko's or other local copy places do photo scanning, Take a roll of film of the parts and just have the developer put them on a phote CD for you (not expensive at all, sometimes free), Or mail me some photo's and I will be more than happy to scan them and email them to you as well as post them here.

That last options only costs you 34 cents - can't complain there <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0">

I just got off the phone with Kerry. the cost of this setup is 95 bucks. It is a directly bolt in there is no machining just drop it in and go man go. If you really want to see this setup the truck will be at the pocono trail fest at paragon adventure park its a flat black tracker.

I'd like to see it. For the price, I'd assume it's not *too* similar to the FROR one, which is good since Brian patented his design.

but you can't shift them independently without removing the fork interlock pin, which you must remove the t-case from the trans to do <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">
I want pics, I want a dual shifter, but want to know why I should get this instead of Brain's, cost?? well if it's as good and does the same job, ok...if not ????? might not be ok.send one to Brandon for testing, and review, unless you don't think it will fly <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Sounds good to me, I'd run it in my truck if it is up to the job. I really don't think there is any cheaper advertising! Contact me at [email protected] and I'll tell you where to ship it for my 23 spline 83 toy tcase! <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">
