Makes sense. Thank you for that info. I've stumbled upon another question, the transfercase that i'm looking at buying is the kind for the push button 4wd shifter. How does this affect me if my 4wd shifter does not have the push button feature? Sorry for all of the questions, I'm still very new to all of this.
You are now out of my area, but I think the puch button kind is a 02 and up thing. Not 100% sure but it started on to 01 front end style. There is a motor on the back side of the transfer case. It controles the 2wd- 4wd fork. So the stick you have will only go Forward and Back (Much like a crawler box.)It controles High and Low range. The button is pretty inportant. You could rig something up and make it work but having the right shifter would be best. I personally would rather have the J-shift patteren. There is also Hubs to work with too. If your truck came with auto hubs I think that the T-case ties into all that. Maybe someone that has delt with that suff personally will fill in the rest
