The above image is the interlocking pin between the two sticks of the transfer case, removing this enabled us to get 2WD low.
Please explain this a bit more and the advantage/ disadvantage?

This is a fantastic thread, Turbo and an intercooler on an International engine. Hats off to you guys! How has the performance been so far? Has all the modifications made to this engine given you the extra oomph you guys were looking for? Please update. This thread has me hooked.
