Side shift case is easy to convert for $0 if you cant find a top shift.Also looking for misc t-case parts:
Shifter base etc (I've got a shifter)
Top shift tcase (if the price is right such that I can build my own doubler)
I'm running the RA Design unit and like it a lot, daves look nice too but always seems to be out of stock. FWIW, the only reason im running it is for my 3rd case, the shifters would be way to far back without it.Santa put a few $ in my stocking this year and looking at starting to compile parts for duals. My main question is regarding shifter options. I like the triple stick options but have heard of problems with fitment. Looks like RAD Design and Davez have good products. Has anybody ran either unit with feedback? It looks like the Davez unit will work without a body lift but I've read the RAD Design unit doesn't - truth? Should I just go twin stick?
Yep. Got a lot of stuff to get done before the March ride - doubler install, modify tcase crossmember, driveshafts, finish rear bumper, add springs to front spring pack, and diff guards.whutcha got there buddy????? you are moving the 4.7 gears to rear case correct?
That's a good idea. I beveled the joint but I'm also worried about the weight. I'll get the tcases mocked up and see where I can add some bracing.Could you add a 1" +/- vertical rib along each side, basically under the tall part of the mounts? Welded perpendicular to the flat plate. Did you bevel both sides to get a good penetration weld on it. I mean typically the weld is stronger than the base material, but having that extra weight hanging off could bend even a solid piece of plate. Adding even a single rib will dramatically increase the overall strength of the crewmember.
Well this is probably why I had vibrations at ~ 40 mph.

So I cut the yoke at the weld and then 6" out of the driveshaft to fit with the duals.

It was a good tight fit back in the tube and then welded. Do you think it'll hold up? It won't see speeds > 40 mph and primarily trails.

Thanks for the link and while I would love an excuse to go to Miami, that’s a little steep for my needs right now. There are actually 3 first gens being parted near me but I couldn’t justify another rust bucket in the driveway.Possible parts truck for you ://miami.craigslist.org/brw/cto/d/1979-toyota-hilux-tacoma-pick/6506902078.html
