Yeah, it is just a bracket that limits the shifter travel. There is a write up in the tech mods section. Fun easy mod. It will go with no gas like 4L but in 2. I have considered using it as an anti-theft device!
It works great offroad with tight turns and where you might not need all 4.

It's a worth while mod, but shifting into 4-Lo without locking in the hubs will suffice in a pinch. Most times I have found, I don't need more traction, just lower gears. Great for boat ramps, trailer parking, rough sections, and teaching youngun's to drive.

Completely redid the cooling system among other things not too long ago. Still showed it ran warm with the A/C on at idle. While driving, the gauge would lower to the middle. I installed an auto meter gauge and put the temp sensor in the upper radiator hose. Proof that the factory gauge is inaccurate.

I let it idle with the A/C on for about 20 min, drove it 5 miles, then let it idle in the driveway while I cleaned up the garage. Factory gauge shows just over 3/4, auto meter shows 190ish, but it did go up to about 205 or so. Ambient temp is about 112 today. It’s a huge relief to know it’s not actually running warm.

Yeah, I went to Grandfather mountain a few weeks back and wanted to take the fam to the peak. It was so crowded there was a stop and go line of traffic all the way to the top. Hubs were unlocked and I used 4low second gear all the way up. One way to save the clutch!

I've been noticing a little oil seepage where the FF axle flange meets the hub. Couple of days ago I checked the torque on the flange nuts and all were loose and on both axles. So I tightened them, cleaned them and added a glob of torque check paste for a quick reference if the nuts begin to back out again. I have my doubts this paste will last long-term being exposed to dirt, gravel, mud, sand, etc.

Went camping for the first time in maybe 15 years. Drove 30 mph up and over Wolf Creek Pass before turning south east toward Elwood Cabin. Really makes you think hard about doing a V8 conversion.

The road back down the hill from Elwood Pass to Pagosa Springs along the east fork of the San Juan is just a little rough for the first 6-7 miles. In the end it was just nice to have the truck out doing what it was meant to be doing.
