Tailhousing fake out maneuver! Made the bracket for $2 with the help of shane's correct tailhousing... Not paying $220 for a tailhousing when I can make something that does the same thing for a few hours of mine, grant's and shane's time and a few bucks!

Picked up my linkage today and rubber floor plate thingy 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, 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.

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!

To those not following this over at RF... Here's the update and most recent teaser

Painted the linkage and brackets with bedliner, letting them set up overnight to dry and cure... Tomorrow the case goes in!



And the the most recent teaser:
