Icon10 Manual T-case shift boot & bezel

Justin (Toreador4x4) and I worked on making the bezel and boot work for my manual transfer case finally. He did most of the work, but I kind of came up with the idea. I helped where I could.

Underneath the diamond plate, there is weatherstripping that seals around the hole in the inspection plate so there won't be heat or noise coming up any longer. Also, it looks relatively close to factory with where we cut the RCM cover / cubby hole.

Around the diamond plate we put black door edge molding to hide the sharp edges. The plate itself is held down with 4 stainless sheet metal screws. The boot is held to the diamond plate with 10 6-32 nuts and bolts, also stainless steel.

Anyhow on with the pictures, I know Justin has more before final assembly, but I'll let him post those.

Oh and I believe I may or may not be the first one to do a manual transfer case swap that has the boot secured AND can shift into 4 Lo.

What did you do for an extension because of the body lift?

Got any pics of it?

We welded in a piece of round stock that was 3" longer and also bent the shifter back about 10 to 15 degrees. I just realized I don't have any pictures of it. Had I been thinking about it, I could've snapped some when the boot and everything was off yesterday. I might be able to get a picture from underneath the truck.

Nah. For the holes you see, I'm going to cut out diamond plate to fit it then probably secure it somehow. Me and fiberglass just don't get along.

What's the deal with being able/not being able to shift into 4lo?

Does it become a problem when you have a bodylift?

no its just that its a long throw into 4LO and i guess if you have an actual boot it makes it harder, i have no problems what so ever, i would guess the body lift would make it that much harder though

you dont count because you are a 5-Speed, the 5-speed guys got it easy when it comes to the boot for the manual t-case, it is more difficult for auto guys and especially with an RCM to cover up

on a side note, i garbage picked the diamond plate from my work. It was on a display for the "new redesigned 2004 f-150" and it had a dvd player with a commercial that played and pieces of the frame and tow hooks bolted down to it
