    ok , first post here , my NP203 on my super FJ60 build is toast , I pulled it down and out without having to drop my tcase since I have a huge hole in the floor... my question is , is it possible to install the twin stick with 1 person in the cab helping and one under it ? also does anyone have a pic of one installed ?

    A neat little 4x4 shop called ORD sells the twin stick. IMO the shifter is what sux most about a 203, other than that its o.k. If I still ran a 203 I'd twin stick it. They're a dime a dozen therefore easily replaced and found for cheap.

    AlaskaFJ60 do you really live at Eagle River? Is this the same one that was talked about in Hot Shots Part Deux?

    huh

    dont know about hot shots , but yes I live in Eagle River Alaska , 13 miles north of Anchorage.

    as for the 203 , seems noone wants them , 300 lbs isn't light but I have scored a free replacement transfer case that I intend to make into a crawler box. might get another from a rolled K20 this week also for ffree

    Yeah 203 are alittle on the heavy side but I've got 7 sitting in the garage.

    Anyway, I was wrong its in the first hot shots movie. You ever seen it? ILMAO when they did the eagle river scene. Funny chit.

    I made my own, and it works great. Thread on how to make it.
    Also directly from ORD's website
    "You get rid of the trouble prone and typically worn out factory shifter box and replace it with 2 levers for much more positive gear selection. One lever will shift the case through Hi-N-Lo and the other will control the differential lock, or on cases converted to part time, the other lever will control 2wd-4wd."
    I was also having trouble with my t-case popping out of 4lo, but when I redid it, no more problems.

    Yep its a piece of cake...if you have enuff mechanical ability to repack your wheel bearings you can make a twin stick for a 203. Pull everything from the box and throw it away. Drill a couple of holes in some flat steel, add some spacer washers and bolt every thing back together... :D
