    Yea looks I retesting..not sure what coils would fit them tho..I might look into it more. Would be cool for sure. I could sell my 5100s in a heart beat on here to help offset cost a bit. As could you. But not sure I'd want to if the jeep shocks didn't work! Haha

    And shit sorry. I forgot yours were 12"

    Extended is 27.68 collapsed is 16.10

    I doubt your at the bottom of 27" I know I'm pretty close if not maxing out my 10" ones.

    Yeah, I'm in the same boat with the jeep shocks. I know there are a couple of other guys out here that might give it a try. If they prove it works, then I'll let you know:cheers:

    As far as the rear shocks go, it's good to know that I should still have some length to play with... just in case I decide to do something drastic down the road. (I'm sure you know what that feels like):spy:

    Honestly I dont think it would be worth it. The cvs will bind horribly with at much droop. Why the arms are longer too in LT.

    Drastic..I like drastic..:D

    ^That's why you need to get your dual cases and a rear ARB. Go big or go home!:evil:

    Ok, back to work on this thread. So, building a dual transfer case setup comes in three major sections...

    #1 Drilling and prep (includes removal of stock t-case and driveshafts)
    #2 Dry fitting process
    #3 Final Install

    So, the Inchworm adapter plate (t-case to t-case) comes with a 0 degree and 10 degree clocking option. This is the clocking for the crawl box. I chose the 0 degree option. With the help of a drill press owning buddy, I got 7 holes drilled into my front adapter plate. These holes will have the crawl box clocked at 0 degrees. We also filed down some burrs, and flattened out a section that wasn't quite flat.

    Step #2


    The truck went beyond the point of no return, thanks to the the help of my buddy, Gerdo. Pulled off the driveshafts and dropped them off at Rocky Mountain Driveline. Then we got busy on the crawl box stuff. We pulled my transfer case off, split it, and resealed it. (it had a slow leak) Then we bolted the two cases together and started the dry-fit process. After some banging on the floor, we got the cases into what will be their final position. (~15* clock)


    Pictures:

    View from under the truck. Clocked ~15 degrees, the T-case is almost flush with the frame rails. Close enough for me.

    You're right. They dual cases actually really help too. But... fixing that rear bind is objective #1 right now.

    A wise man once said Oh my... the plans... the money. He's right.

    Ok, so before I installed the triple sticks I modified them a bit. First, I bent the levers away from each other, then cut the levers to match the height of the crawl box shifter.

    [​IMG]

    iraked back the shifters 20 degrees or so and one of the lever arms underneath had to be re clearanced.

    [​IMG]

    Then I fit everything into the bezel. It have to be moved backward about 2 inches, but everything fit.

    So, I used the Toytec coilover collars with 2nd gen tacoma 16" Toytec (eibach) coils. The shocks are from a first gen tundra. (I believe) What I like about this setup is that there is no spacer involved and my coilovers are set only about a third of the way up for about 3" of lift. This reduces the preload on the springs an allows them to flex really well.

    If you end up using the JK shocks, post up you experiences. I'm eager to hear how they work out!

    So, after I installed the triple sticks, I had to come up with a way to hide the linkage. Most people have a center console to cover it all up but I do not. So, I decided that making a raised section of floor was the best solution. Once again, Gerdo to the rescue with his hammer on bean bag skills:

    A wise man indeed :spy:

    i love that triple stick setup man..seriously so sick :drool:

    whats not to like? Have low range and low low range in 2wd drive so you can take sharp corners without the CVs binding. Freaking sweet.

    So there were a couple of reasons I liked the Twin stick. The first one was related to my bench seat. The rear t-case shifter popped out just in front of the seat when I drove the truck. My wife needs the seat closer to the steering wheel to reach the pedals and she couldn't do that with the shifter there.

    The second reason was for the ability to choose 2-wheel high, 2-low, 4-low, low-low all independant of one another. I can choose where the loading in my drivetrain goes now. Also, if I choose to upgrade to 4.7 gears for the front case, I can go 2.57:1, 4.7:1 and 12.1:1 however I want.

    Finally was just aethetics. I think it looks nicer with all the shifter lined up in the stock bezel. I wanted it to look as stock as possible... I'm a nerd like that!:anonymous:
