    Yeah that's no problem, I have swapped transmissions and transfer cases before. I was just hoping to pop the back off and reseal it lol. I have a couple spare cases so I can just swap it and work on it on my bench.

    There was a dude on here recently that pulled the rear half of the case with it still in the truck. Not the way I would do it, but to each their own.

    2lo is also good for cruising on the trail and free up steering when 4x4 isn’t needed.

    why on earth would you want to do donuts and burnouts in 2lo haha you’ll need the wheels speed. Trial and error, pal. Go send it

    Can't recall if we talked about this previously...is your truck a manual or an auto? If manual you'll need to swap inputs from your Taco case to FJ case while your twin sticking.

    Either way, the Taco case in your truck or the busted one are fine for a donor, except you'll need to order, at a minimum, these two parts separately:

    Transfer Gear Shift Fork No. 2 36312-35040

    Transfer Low Planetary Gear Spline 36284-35021

    There was a decent thread on the steps to twin stick, but I must have found it on another toyota site as i cant find it here. Check out my build thread around Sept 2019 I cover most of the steps for twin stick and can fill in any details youre missing. You have to remove a little metal pill from where the detent spring is, and grind the shift rail on the vertical and horizontal axis to remove the nubs.

    Highly suggest you read NWFs install instructions, and call them to discuss your application.
