Here she is folks!

- Removed the shift rod from the tranny, and bent it out of the way.
- Welded a bolt (with matching thread, and connected to tranny, onto the end of a spare ea81 hood prop rod :lol:
- Routed rod through drilled hole in firewall.
- Connected to spare 4WD hi/lo shift assembly, which was welded to the body.

PICS!!!
:banana:

I like your engineering...

The stick is backwards from the factory position,
so are you pushing down for 4wd up for 2wd:confused:

The blue factory-position stick you see in the corner of picture 2 now ONLY controls the 2wd/4wd action.

The new tan stick I put in is to select hi or lo range independently of the 4wd ......lemme tell you, 2wd lo is SWEET if you are running bigger tires!


UP is high-range
DOWN is low-range :grin:

I had to weld it in backwards too.....if it was the "right way" it would be in the way. Where it is, it tucks nicely behind your knee as you drive!
