I call you IE not Y. So deal with it nig. lol

Yeah I just picked up the t-case linkage from a 1991 B2 with 1354m case in it and rubber floor plate from an older expo for $10.

Then went to the hardware store and picked up some grade 8 stuff for the bracket and some stainless for the t-case shifter arm. T-case will be here wednesday morning (Only paid $100 for a 1354m from a 94 expo), then I'm just gonna clean it up, pump some royal purple into it, paint up the bracket and mount it when i mount the new 1354m up, install the interior plastics to make me level II and boom!

The superlift driveline should work just fine once i take the adapter off to change it over to the CV cup style front output. I'm just gonna block off the speedo cable hole and figure out which wires control the 4wd indicators and probably wire them to a LED on the new bezel I get... I'll know what gear i'm in, but a light would be kinda cool to have others know too.

Nice fab work on the bracket. Looks like it'll be a good, sturdy, setup.

Just finished the linkage and adapters! It's ready to get painted and waiting on the case for Wednesday morning! Then it all goes in, including the level 2 shifter arm and ball! I'll get the pics up from tonight in a few hours!

Alright here's the pics before the painting. Tapped the new linkage to 3/8-24 NFT, and going to paint it up today and run to the hardware store for some bolts for the shifter arm and linkage.

Worked out well. It shifts really smoothly and it's in the exact spot the correct tailhousing would put the linkage!
