    Not much to be wrong internally in the tcase-shift fork could be bent, but I've never seen it, they're pretty stout. It's more likely to have a stuck, never been lubed, bunged linkage...

    thanks for the pic yeti :G now i have to find a set of axles.what did he do for steering?was thinking about using a chevy steering box and linkage adapted to the toy colume. chef-the shaft that goes into the t-case moves and the linkage is all in working order.it isnt a big deal as i tow it every where i take it.but hi range would be nice for going trail to trail. thanks guys

    I couldn't really tell you anything about the truck. I've never actually seen it.

    If you pop on over to the forum on the MN toyx4 site, he frequents there under MRTLC4x4.

    Do you really think the LC transfer case will hold up to 44" tires and one-ton axles? I don't.

    I am in the process of swapping one ton running gear into my cruiser and plan on reusing the stock FJ60 steering box. As for swapping axles its not too bad if you are using a leaf spring suspension.

    If you are planning on running 44" tires you might want to swap a 14 Bolt out back and upgrade the 60 to 35 spline inners and outers. especially if you swap a healthy V8 in there.

    look over in the hardcore section...there is a thread or two on 14bolt swaps.
