    Swapped around the input shafts today on the cases. It wasn’t as bad as I was expecting, I just took my time. Had a minor hiccup that required me to reopen the case but it’s all squared away now. It’ll get mounted tomorrow and I’ll get started on the shifter.

    I got the case mounted and shifter reworked. It’s a little close to the trim in 4LO so I’m going to tweak it a bit tomorrow. Looking like I’ll be all wrapped up by Friday.

    So whats the purpose of this? Just manual engagement of the transfer case? Any other benefits?

    That’s pretty much it. Get rid of the electronic actuators so the system is overall more reliable. You can also twin stick it, meaning you can do 2wd/4wd and hi/lo independent of one another, making 2lo very easy.

    edit: I should add the case was only $300 shipped, cheaper than one might think

    That was my next question. I have the 2lo module which i use all the time. I'm assuming the twin stick is some sort of mod to change the engagement of the tcase?

    This would negate that completely since what I’m doing eliminates the 4wd ecu. If you were to switch to the fj case twin stick, you would get even easier engagement of 2lo

    and yes, you open the case and grind down a couple nubs and that’s it

    Stuff that my wife thinks I don't need.

    Good think you have access to an industrial sewing machine.

    All done. Crawled under the truck to put it in and noticed some fluid where the t case and trans meet. I cleaned it up but I may be dropping the case again. at least now everything was freshly removed so doing it again won’t be very hard.

    This may be a dumb question, but what U-joints did you go with?

    Gonna need even more soon. Confirmed there is fluid coming from where the trans and t case meet. Doesn’t smell like gear oil so probably a transmission output shaft seal. Gonna have to drop the case again.

    This looks just like a cv diff seal. Just pull out the old and put in the new. Should be easy enough.

    lol I'm a dumbass and don't even know my transmission code. That's for the 5 speed. I can't find a part number for the 6 speed and it's also not in the FSM I zoomed in on one of my previous pics and it looks like there's a cover and indeed a leak. I wonder if toyota uses a paper gasket or FIPG there. Hopefully I'll have time to drop the case again tomorrow and see.
