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?
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: http://www.off-road.com/~jweed/twinstck.htm
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!
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.
