do you have a stick to change from 4x4 to 2wd, or is it the shift on the fly? If it is the manual transfer case, look at it, and see if it has 2 inputs on hte shifter linkage. If it does, there might be a kit for it, I know there are kits for some older tranfer cases..... but I do not know about ours...... if it does have twin inputs, and there is not a kit, you might beable to make something up?

My bro did a twin stick on his jeep and he has 2wd low.

Anyone else know about the transfer cases?

Get lower gears. Maybe some 4.88s thta will solve your problem lol. Dont really see why you would need lower gear anyway.

just use 4-low and get-r-done.

If the hubs aren't auto-locking then you will be golden.

For the OBS trucks, it is just put it in 4low and leave the hubs unlocked.

And all the ford transfer cases are single stick with a single input. I always wanted to twin stick one of these but an Atlas II is just way to much.

I know there "was" a way to do it on back on the 99 2000 year models. Not sure if wiring etc. remained the on the subsequent year models. It was a simple matter of snipping a wire wire and routing that wire to a switch that you installed inside the cab.

I have the instructions and some photos stored somewhere. I'll try to find them.

Here is a link from way back when......LINK

And here is another link with some instructions LINK


I snipped the red wire as the instructions in the link above implied, and it did not work for me, so I just put it back together and forgot about it. Later in the thread, the fella says ("oops") to cut a different wire. I never tried it. It is just as easy to just unplug the harness.

Just unplug the vacum line that runs to the hubs. Easiest place to do this is at the vacum reserve canister on the passenger side. Transfercase will shift into 4 low but hubs will not lock giving you 2 low.
