Manual t-case linkage adapter--OR

Up for grabs is a custom bracket to adapt manual t-case linkage without having to source the ultra rare and expensive FX4 LII tailhousing, when upgrading to a manual t-case.

It is designed and built off a LII tailhousing, so you know you're getting a quality part.
I have tested it on an electric t-case driveline, and it is shift perfectly.

I have two for sale right now.

Price: $75shipped

(The part is the black adapter that the linkage is attached to):

You need a manual t-case. This bracket just gives you the provisions to bolt the manual t-case linkage onto your stock tailhousing.

Check out TrePaul's thread. We built his together and then i built these as an offering to you offroad guys who want to swap in a manual tcase but can't because they don't have the tailhousing:

Nothing planned yet. They were a lot more labor intensive than i thought...i'm getting old and can't crawl under trucks and stuff.

in otherwords: Probably not, I'd get it nao if i were you, lol.

That's actually a 1354 manual shift front half, Grant... Not electric...But yes, it does shift very smoothly!

Yup. i meant it as it was on an original electric drivetrain, but converted to a manual t-case. But yeah, what he said.

These brackets are ONLY for 2001+ 4.0L SOHC motors. Since they're the only ones that didn't have the threaded bungs on the tailhousing, these brackets give us guys that option. All the automatic tranny tailhousings had it and the older M5OD-R1 had the bungs as well.

Any ranger I believe 88/9-97 had the option, 02-03 ranger, 90+ bronco II and explorer up til 94 had the linkage. I just pulled it the other day for $10. You'll need a big crescent wrench for the front bolt and a 9/16" for the back bolt after putting the case in 4lo. Be sure to grab the plastic round notched washer.

You want the linkage to be the kind that is straight on the outside piece that attaches to the case. If it has a bend in it, where it mounts to the case, it's 1350m linkage, not 1354m linkage. Hope that helps.

I don't think you have the bungs. Since all the trucks had the same t-case bolted to the tailhousing, the bracket should bolt up. But i guess just crawel under your truck and see if you have two threaded bosses in the tailhousing

I'm pretty sure he does. The 3.0 OHV was an older motor and was offered the tailhousing with the bungs in it... I could be mistaken though.

Jason, crawl under your truck, I'm 99% sure you have the right tailhousing for the swap since your speed is measured at the rear end abs sensor, not the the tailhousing like the 2001+ guys.

I just crawled under my 2003, 3.0L, 5 sp and there is no extra holes in the tail housing near the T/C.
