twinstick dana 20

Anybody tried to create a twinstick for the dana 20? I dont see why it wouldnt be possible since there are two shift rods, one for the front fork and one for the rear. Any ideas, or explanations as to why it would or wouldnt be possible?

Re: twinstick dana 20

I was lucky, I happen to come across a twin stick 20 out of a scout. Haven't used it yet, but it's got to shift better than the jeep 20

Do a search and type in twin stick or Dana 20, you should get plenty of stuff. Here are a couple of urls to get you started.

Re: twinstick dana 20

I did a Scout Dana 20 twin stick conversion to put into my CJ using a pair of $25 Dana 18 twin-sticks. It's easy to do to the Scout version if you just get the sticks because the linkage for the Scout version and Dana 18 are the same. For the Jeep Dana 20, you would need the entire front bracket from a Dana 18. I used the writeup on this link:

It was a pretty easy conversion, I have the sticks set up, but I haven't had a chance to put it in the Jeep yet. It'll have capabilities of 2wd rear high & low, front wheel drive high & low, and 4wd high & low. The only thing I don't like is the possibility of shifting the front & rear axle into different ranges which will do some serious damage!
Good luck

Re: twinstick dana 20

On the Jeep Dana 20 you don't have to worry about shifting the axles into two different ranges. Unlike the Scout 20, the Jeep version has one rod for front axle, both axles, and rear axle and the other rod for high, neutral, and low.
