well the final install doesnt look horrible, i wonder what the rest of the install is like (their website only shows the install on a Chevy) and the operation of the system.

The install is fairly simple, to be honest. You're changing the fork hat from vacuum to cable operation (obviously), and there's no other real tricky parts involved.

I've put them on Jeeps. They seem to work just fine; it isn't a real issue, AFAIK.the other nice think is, you can use it as a 2L transfer case option.. Engaging 4L, but not the front axle.. ;)

yeah, it makes it kinda nice when you need that slow, low gear, but on hard surface (like backing up a big trailer, etc.)

I've never put one in but knew a rancher with one that the shop I worked for installed and my old boss said it wasn't hard to do. Pretty handy to have I think, I'd like to have one so I would have 2L for trailers and such.:thumb1:

it won't take much steering input to know, on the dry.

well i found some dry road and gave it a try and i cant tell any difference at all in the steering with the tcase in 4hi. so i guess the next step is to jack the truck front and back and try it in 2 wheel and 4 wheel and see if the front tires turn.:banghead:

Yeah if you didn't notice it on dry pavement than your 4wd isn't working... does your heater and cruise control work fine? Just wondering if your vac line has come off the pump?:shrug:
