    Post in the parts for sale forum. Grim (moderator) will probably move this there when he finds it.

    FYI there are different shifters for different transmisson combos. If you want to bolt it in without mods be sure to find the right one.

    Twin stick gives you the option of rear low range with front open and you can also run front low or high without the rear engaged. Disengaging the front can help turning allot with a front locker and you can keep the rear in low range. With a broken rear, it could be useful to run front only. Also, as long as you don't run a rear spool, you can disengage the rear and use trailer brakes to turn on a dime. Then there is the coolness factor AND theft deterrence of multiple unmarked shifters.

    Baddog Just curious. What is this twin stick? Factory option,
    Aftermarket, or custom. Never Herd of it. I'm always looking
    for the unstoppable truck option. Sounds interesting. Thanks

    It's a custom mod. Look at these <a target="_blank" href=http://www.geocities.com/tom-p/Temp/>scans</a>
