    I a getting ready to do a toybox to splitcase mated to a sm465. It does look like its going to interfere with the tuffy. I am going to modify the toybox shifter to make it work

    I installed a 2F/465/Toybox/Orion. This truck also has a tuffy center box. I had to extend the shifter and angle it towards the left side of the main shifter cane. Not that big of a deal...the Toybox shifts really easy...and there is not a lot of movement to make it happen...


    I know that there are pictures of this someplace.....I have been looking all over for them....



    I will post up a link, or a couple pics when I find them...


    Good luck!

    I could swear I've seen a cable conversion for the Toy shifter somewhere...

    I would call marlin, Which Toybox adapter on the back? 3spd, 4spd or split? I am pretty sure the splits were getting a cable actuated thing that came out the shift pin for the toybox. Then you can mount it anywhere..
    I personally prefer direct engagement. Steve's right tho it can be welded and moved. Marlin make shifters that move within 4" or so of the center.. if you go further and still want direct shift you might want the quickshift top plate so the throw isn't as far.

    I would get the tuffy box that you want, and get it mounted up where you want it also, with cup holders of course, and then work around it...


    Good luck!

    Ditto what Steve said..
    Marlin could possibly make a cable shift.
    Get a short throw shifter for the toybox if needed and if no cable offered move the shifter location to the desired point.
    Marlin has used shifters that have been cut if you don't want to ruin a newer one.
