I don't recall it even being as complex as acct21's pictures - I'm pretty sure I just used the pivot point that bolts to the floor. That pivot holds a simple t-case shifter rod, then the bottom end is connected to the modified 727 linkage pieces. I know that's still not a ton of detail, but it is pretty simple linkage, and works extremely well. There's no binding at all, I can pretty much shift into/out of 4WD with one finger.

We drove the Waggy nearly everyday until Fall 2015, when we lost a head gasket. The transmission swap never gave us a minute worth of trouble. We parked it and decided to build the wife a CJ. The Waggy is the next project, and will be getting an LS, NV-4500, and Dana 300.

Thank you for the updated info. I will look for one. I used to have one, just need to see if I can find it.

Where did the photos go? d

Where did the photos go? I was using this a my bible for my build and I'm stuck how I should set up the linkage for 4Lo/Hi on my NP228.

If there's anyway to recover the photos or if anyone has some tips on how to best connect the linkage for 4Lo/Hi that would be a huge help to me!

I'd like to be able to use the original shift lever on my 89' that's on the floor near the driver's seat.

Hope someone sees this and can help!
