its not going to shift as smooth as the transmission shifter, you are basically manually meshing gears together, so not a smooth engagement....
This. OP yours sounds like mine. In theory you slow roll and it is easy. I won’t say butter. I think there is somewhat of an art to it, become the gear, kinda thing. But, the more you do it the more you know when you did it right.light movement while shifting into and out of 2H/4H/4L i try to do it running 3-4 mph and it has gotten a little easier each time i have shifted it. So either i am learning the way of the transfer case or its easing up with the use. either way still enjoying having to use 4L on the trails
With a manual transmission you can just press the clutch in and shift into or out of 4L (while rolling). No need to shift it into neutral.Greetings all.
I was having this same issue yesterday and found this thread while investigating. What's the procedure with a manual transmission? If I am in 1st and start rolling, is it fine to just press the clutch in and pull the transfer case lever?? It's either that or start rolling, press the clutch, shift into neutral, release the clutch, and then pull the transfer case lever.
Either way I am not going to try shifting into 4-low from a stop again.
How many hours labor on the transmission shifter install?The b&m transfer case shifter makes it a lot easier by giving you more leverage. And rolling very slowly with trans in neutral (manual or automatic) is the best way. Also the more you use it the easier it gets.
Side note: if you have a manual, the sport shifter is definitely worth the money as well.
I literally swapped both in the parking lot on my lunch break. There is a good instructional video on YouTube. I just watched it and brought the tools I needed to work with me. All together it took 30-45 minutes.How many hours labor on the transmission shifter install?
