I had always bee looking for a way to easily shift the Warn Overdrive in a FC truck. Cable systems never seemed to work properly for me and I was looking for another option. In conversations with Jim Fasnacht, a fellow FC owner, he had told me he had used the transfer case shifter out of a FC truck with great success. So it was out to the shed to see what I could come up with for my FC Tour Jeep.

I found that the transfer case shifter out of a narrow-track FC-150 might do the trick. Since they extend out of the side of the cooling tunnel, the extra length fit my application perfectly. I also wanted it to look as stock as possible. I was able to do this by using some of the existing holes that are used to bolt down the front engine cover in the cooling tunnel.
