Chevy Chase once needed a dickfer, is it something related to this?

I reckon it wouldn't be too hard to knock up a dual lever setup for the transfer case. One lever for 2wd-4wd and the other for H-L

Hilux box presumably can be modded, however ours presumably can't.

Would be a great feature.

I think the easy select wouldn't be too hard to do. There is an interlock plunger that would have to be removed to allow independent operation of the H/L shift fork and the 2WD/4WD fork. Not too sure about the super select transfer I imagine it would be a bit more complicated

It'd be great to be able to unlock the centre diff lock in low range on the Super Select, best of all worlds.

Would be easy if it was operated by a solenoid.

Low range 2wd, override centre diff lock MN GLX R

Postby Johncor on Mon Jul 20, 2020 8:24 pm

Been Googling and searching this. I know free wheeling hubs cant be fitted to this model, but is there a way to get 2WD low range at the centre diff?

Got caught on a mountain hill stopped at road works the other day with a 2t van on the back. Couldn't get away in high range, had to take the risk of breaking a shaft in 4LLC.

Would be great to have 2L as a backup in a case like this.

Some say the lock is a mechanical lock in the box from the selector lever, is that correct for the GLXR also as there is a rumour someone has been able to do this?

Thanks all in advance.

If your front diff has the actuator (earlyish MN's did) there is a workaround involving keeping the front diff in 'freewheeling' mode. I haven't really looked into this too much so don't know the specifics.

If you don't have the actuator there isn't really a way without modifying the transfer case. I have looked into my easy select transfer and it could be be done by making a dual lever setup and by removing a lockout detent between the shift rails within the transfer. Super select transfers are probably similar but I haven't had the chance to verify.

Edit: Seems to be similar

You would need to remove item #38 to allow the H-L shift fork to move independently from the 2wd-4wd shift fork. And sort out your lever somehow (Dual levers would be my choice)
