Transfer case:: Twin stick question

I'm looking at buying an 83' CJ-7, it has the 258 and Automatic trans.

Can I put a twin stick transfer case on it? The only thing coming up from the floor is the single transfer case shifter and the transmission shifter is on the column.

With a twin stick you don't replace the entire transfercase. You replace the single shifter with a dual shifter.

I'm not a mechanical genius... but just replacing the shifter with 2 shifters makes no sense to me.

I'll check out those links, thanks.

Oh wow... Yeah, just saw that one for the dana 300.... It said you could choose between high and low, but can you choose "neutral" too?

The idea is to have one shifter for the front axle's output and one for the rear axle's output. This allows you to have the front in neutral and the rear in low range.

OK... thanks.


So I took a look at that picture. I didn't know it was as easy as just changing the shifter into a dual shifter. I thought you had to have a special transfer case such as an Atlas II.

Looking at that picture, it seems as though they made it really confusing for such an easy operation. One side is labeled High, Neutral, Low, then the other side is labeled 4wd high, 2wd, 4wd low.......

I would have tried to explain it as Rear and Front.................. High, Neutral, Low............ am I correct? or am I losing my mind?

One more question, sorry for my squishy brain. This is a 258 with the automatic transmission. Anybody know what Transfer Case came stock? I'm in Iraq and can't physically look at it and my search results just come up with info on the transmission instead.

Ignore that picture as it is confusing. Refer to the other pictures at the start of that thread. Each stick has low range all the way forward, neutral in the middle, and high range all the way back. I would have labled that diagram like you would have.

Any '80-86 CJ came with the Dana 300 transfer case.

Okay... I made a new diagram and got rid of those useless confusing cross lines.

Here we are:

I meant the mechanical part of just changing the shifter. For some reason I thought you actually had to change the whole transfer case. I love the option of choosing between front/rear. I've always wanted that but thought I had to shell out some big money to change it. I can't wait.

Thanks for the info on the models. I had one many moons ago in High school as one of my first jeeps, but I only fixed what broke every week. I never did any major changes or upgrades. Is that transmission good in your eyes? I won't be doing rock crawling or anything, I'm going to turn it into my daily driver. Pretty much a beach comber.

It's a good medium duty trans and should hold up fine. I have one in my Scrambler with a D300 AND twin sticks..
