Stay tuned: 2lo modification?

This is in the Tracker/Sidekick section. Just so you don't get your hopes up if you are working on a Samurai T-case.

I've been looking hard at my spare T-case in the garage, and I would love to have 2lo when I have my hubs locked...

I guarantee I will find a way to use 1 shifter for 2hi, 2lo, 2neu, and 4 hi, Neu, and low.

Input would be helpfull, but I am gonna be spending some thought on how to do it.

Update: I got pictures for making it 4lo straight to 2lo, then back to 4lo. Next page.

In a Samurai case. Sidekicks have a different pattern.

I have a $0 budget. I would love to support a maker of twin sticks (but not RRO!), but I can't afford to drive 10 miles with my income...

I forgot to think about it today... I was having more fun wheeling today, but I will be out in the garage changing my front end out again, so I will look at it hard tonight.

No I am not talking about a twin stick. Rocky road had a kit for 2lo. It was on the zukiworld site. http://www.zukiworld.com/month_12010...o2wdlowkit.htm . But if you are on a $0 dollar budget then this won't really help.

Would there be any reason to have 2low if your front isnt locked?

Flat towing... If you tow in neutral, the whole front assembly will turn, wearing out the output shaft, front U-joints, front differencial, and front CV joints.

If you do this or get Twin sticks, you have the ability to tow in complete neutral.

Or do you mean having a locked front diff?

I like to spin my back tires (drift/rally "practice") between obsticals, and I don't want my front to interfere.

Also; I do better at the dunes in 2wd, but I would like to stay in 2wd and use low while my front is locked in.

How about an update??

I tried to take the middle ball out without tearing the T-case apart, so that was a good hour wasted...

Tore the case apart and put it back together without that ball, then ground the fork just like I illustrated.

It works!!!

Really?! That's awesome!! So what's the shift pattern? Do you have any side effects?

Only thing I see that is a little negative is that you have to shift down to high to shift into 4wd. Everything works perfectly.

For 4wd LOW:
On the shifter, you would go to the 2/4wd side and push up twice as far as you would an un-modified shifter, then you would have to go down till you felt the rod on the other end, then go left to the HI/LO side and shift it up twice.

For 2wd LOW:
In 2wd High, move the shifter up till you feel the end of the rod, then move the shifter left and shift up twice. Don't move the 2/4wd rod, I ground it to line up with the other fork before it moved.

My way is free. It takes the same amount of effort, but shifting into 4low from 2low would be cool. I can't do that with mine.

I don't see a 2low shift fork for a SIDEKICK at Lowrange, just for the SAMURAI.

That's what I meant. I guess I didn't realize you had a Sidekick. Guess I should have read your posts more clearly. Sorry dude, I will butt out.

I thought I seen twin sticks out for these already. Don't remember who, but I could probably make a couple sets if I felt like it. It would be nice to have twin sticks or have a different notch on the 2/4 rod so I can switch from 2lo to 4lo, cuz it would help me in some situations...
