    Here is my progress on my triple stick. Basically waiting for 4 heims that I got off ebay (Score for $14 for 4 shipped) and to build some bling bling knobs of sorts. I may need to trim the bottom of the shift lever linkage off on the outmost one in case it come close to driveshaft but I don't think I'll be using that bottom hole anyways. Anybody see anything to improve them? So far I ahve all of $14 into it (heims) and about 4 hours or so.

    is it just me or is the shifter gonna be in the way of the d-shaft?

    but looks killer. did you build it yourself? what kind of busings did you use for the shifter pivot part? or any at all? what size heims are you using?

    thats what I ment for having to cut the bottoms of the linkage off since I won't be needing the bottom hole on those outside ones. The bushings are 1/4" wall DOM with a 5/8 bolt through. Built it all myself. If I have to I can squeeze the shifter together tighter and get more clearance but if I cut those ends off will beabove the front output flange

    that looks badass, im still a newbie to all this though, i know that it allows you to control ur front/rear speeds, but what kinda situations do u use them in?

    you can independantly put the rear in high or low or the front in high or low or both in high or low plus a second high low range box. I plan on putting a micco lock on the rear brakes too and see if I can lock rear end and use front wheel drive and such too.

    I trimmed extra off the shifter linkage mounts today, picked up some knobs and welded 1/2 bolts to the shifters to screw knobs onto and painted everything. Just waiting on heims now. How have ya'll installed your doublers, with the shifters on or off?

    I should remember. Pretty sure I weaseled mine in WITHOUT the shifters, then put the shifters BACK on (having testfit the setup off the truck). It was tight, but doable...

    Acha. Looking at the pix. I left the linkages attached to the '205, but took off the shifter rods and the stuff on the '203, basically.

    I did have to do some notching to get everything to fit.

    I think that the lever to right has too much of the wrong leverage. It's going to want to twist side to side on it's axis and bind instead of pivot front to back.

    the front output shift rail on the 205 you talking about? The linkage will kick over about 1/4- 1/2" from side to side. I'll try to get a better pic

    I donno whether you meant right of the pic or right of the truck, but either way, this setup looks to be about the same as my ORD kit, which has no issues going where I want it to :confused:
