I've only had a couple of 78-79's with the 4spd and a couple of 67-68 small block bowties and a 71 442 w/455-4spd. They were all easy to shift and with the trucks all having granny first you never shifted down beyond 2nd and usually it was 3rd. The real trick is in the woods or on crappy roads keeping the hubs locked in and moving from 2wd to 4wd while on the move without grinding the tcase to dusts. It's just a feel that seems ridiculously easy when you get used to your truck.
