Is it possible to rig a d/r 5 speed so that you can operate it with the little red button, so you have 2hi and 4 lo but no 4hi?

Sure its possible, but you'd be going into uncharted territory.

I can't think of any reason you'd want to though, the lever works 100% of the time, theres no vacuum lines to break, or electronics to fail.

It probably is possible, but the trick would be to figure out the linkage, and you HAVE to have the clutch depressed to go from hi-lo or back - I dont see an advantage to it tho, as the vacuum actuators for the pushbutton 4WD are sometimes hairy at best

what WOULD have the potiential to be advantageous, would be to seperate the linkages entirely (the gear reduction for low range is mechanically independent of the 4WD) - so that you could do 2hi, 2lo, 4hi, 4lo - not shure what it would be good for, but it would be an awesome thing to play with
