If you have a locker in the front end , (ez locker ,aussie , lock right etc.. ) when front hubs and four wheel drive is engaged , these make it hard to turn on sharp narrow trails etc..

With a twin stick , you can disengage the front axle and make a turn a lot easier , then move on . Also can run in low in rear axle , while front is not engaged.

When I'm winding my way down a tight trail I frequently disengage the rear and use the front tires to pull the frontend around. Kind of have to blip the throttle a little... it's actually quite fun.

My D300 has 2WH, 4WH, 4WL and Front or Rear Wheel Low. I could also mess with the little "pills" that are between the shift rails to get Front Wheel High but I don't really need it. I think if you do that, you run the risk of putting one axle in high range and one axle in low range too.. could be wrong but I thought I read that somewhere.

Correct - If you remove the interlocks the axles can be in different ranges, which would not be good if you actually moved the vehicle

From what I have read here, Yes. I believe you can do it to any transfer case. Some might need to be a custom job, but anything can be done.

There are kits for the Dana 20. One stick is front axle, the other is rear. Each stick has L-N-H range selections. The D20 you can do Front 2wd H, but not 2L if you keep the interlocks.
