Re: twin stick t-case
The 800 should have a Dana 20, and they did come in twin-stick versions.
The twin stick shifters would bolt onto a Jeep '20 (FAIK), but you'll probably still need to modify the Jeep '20's shifter rails to accomodate the "side notch" style shifters. You might think you could use the twin-stick 20's shift rails in your Jeep '20 when you rebuild it, but there was also a design change when they went to the single-stick such that set-screws and stupid "little" things like that are all in the wrong places to make the swap easy - easier to swap the twin-stick Scout 20 into the Jeep.
I don't think the 2-stick '20 from the factory is as useful as a good modified 'case. It shouldl still have an interlocking plunger preventing RWD -hi, FWD-only use at all, and things like that. Basically about as useful as a single-stick unit, but with 2x the sticks to operate.
