Shift pattern needed

I just got finished installing my t-18 with a twin stick dana 20. Does anyone know the shift pattern of the twin stick from a scout? As far as I can tell, each stick has 3 positions, but i'm sure if you mix and match the possitions between the 2 sticks, you'll get a different outcome.

Re: Shift pattern needed

I never bothered to twin stick my Scout transfer case (still in my Scout), so I had no idea. I snagged both of the factory manuals and looked it up, gotta love reference manuals.

The left shifter (or rail) controls the rear axle, all the way forward is low range, then neutral, and high range is all the way back. The right shifter controls the front axle the same way.

Re: Shift pattern needed

That is GREAT, thanks. So that means that I could even run front wheel drive without pulling the rear drive shaft. Thanks again

Re: Shift pattern needed

Is your Dana 20 a Jeep model or a Scout model? They are not the same. On a Scout 20 it is possible to have one axle in high and one in low (very bad). On the Jeep one stick is for high and low and one is for front and rear, although I don't know which is which.
