Dana 300 Twin Stick w/nv4500

Am trying to install a Currie twin stick into my '81 CJ7 w/350 and nv4500 tranny. I've heard that you have to do some grinding of the tranny case and bending of the shifters, which I tried. Just can't seem to get it positioned correctly, without rubbing. I'm thinking of using some washers and moving it over toward the passenger side more, but if I go much farther, I'll have to have the passenger shift it in/out of 4wd!

Anyone else tried this combo?

Re: Dana 300 Twin Stick w/nv4500

I just did this same thing in my CJ-6. What I had to do is trim a piece off of right rear corner of the shifter top to clear. Then I had to bend the shifters towards the passenger side a little bit to clear the tranny shifter.
I have the shifters set in the adjustment holes closes to the transfercase on all adjustments. It is tight
but everything clears ok. I did have to trim out the shifter hole some but not much with the cover I'm using.
If I had to do it over again I would have used the 4 plus kit because it brings everything out better and is
a cleaner installation but I bought mine before I had the body on and thought I would have to adjust it
forward. You may have to do a little grinding on the tranny too. On my NV 4500 the right rear corner has
a piece of casting sticking out that I think may be for a holding fixture or lifting point for the factory. No
big deal to grind it down if it's in the way. Good luck. Nickmil.
