    How much throw does the lil shifter have? Could you crimp on a tarp grommet like ring to the side of the boot, or would it stretch it too far?

    It has a decent amount of throw. If you’re on IG, go look at my story. It wouldn’t work to secure the boot to the shaft, hence adding another little boot.

    Right?! I love it. I’ve even washed it a few times and it shrunk a tiny bit after the first wash but not anymore. Which is good because it was a hair big for being a large.

    The only thing I would change about it is to put 4LowPro on the back of the shirt.

    I tried to put #randyfab on the upper back in small letters but it wouldn’t let me put it up high enough to not look weird.

    I ran without any boot for like 5 years and used that area as a trash can :rofl:

    When I dropped the drivetrain to do the clutch I put a slit in the stock boot just like that and it doesn’t look bad, especially compared to no boot. It’s all perspective, as most people would say and I’ll compliment you on the boot, “looks good from my house” :)

    Hahaha I know what you mean. It really is fine but if I don’t try and tweak it now, I never will.

    Exactly, you'll move onto another project. I had lost interest in the shift boot, and was happy to just have the stock leather one back. how are you liking the 2lo function. IMO you can damn near swap an FJ case for close to the cost of that 2lo module the fellow is selling on here.

    I didn’t twin stick it or bother wiring in the ADD. That may change though. I don’t have a front driveshaft in right now so I can have 2lo and it’s pretty fun. Or wait and see if I need to open it again and twin stick it then.

    either way, I’m happy with the swap. It is taking some getting used to having a second shift knob in the same area.

    You don't need the twin stick for 2lo, just leave the ADD disengaged.

    That’s what I mean, I didn’t wire in the add. I put the truck in 4hi and disconnected the 4wd ecu. Add Is always engaged as it sits right now.

    Oh I gotcha, I misinterpreted when you said that. So you left the collar slid over to the 4wd position, that makes sense.

    Yeah, I went the free and easy route. Took me about 30 seconds and cost me nothing. I was considering the FJ tube but will rock this until I have a reason to swap.

    I hear that, the only reason I swapped over was because my diff tube exploded LOL. I think you'll find that leaving the actuator locked in you'll be good for many years unless you get stupid on the skinny pedal :homer:

    Lolol I seent your thread, which is invaluable btw with part numbers. I’m less worried about the strength of the add and more so the actuator failing, hence the path I took. I agree that I should be fine, at least I hope so.
