I think this an awesome idea, and with some refinement could definitely be a cool item.
My suggestion is, it looks like this is on the door side of the seat. I jumped in my bronco to go somewhere today and attempted to reach the floor with the door closed. My meatstick of an arm couldn't squeeze in between the seat and the door. So in order to use this properly, i'd have to open the door in order to shift the transfer case.
There are times i am going relatively slow, and this wouldn't be a bad thing. There are also times when i am on the highway, in snow, doing about 50, and opening the door just isn't an option.
Just a suggestion though, i think it's a really good idea and with some refinement, could be a killer item
Thanx B/Rob, and I know exactly what you're talking about. The S-2 will have to come with an advisory stating it should only be used after coming to a complete stop. I mean I get get my half meat-stick of an arm in there but since I gotta get outside to lock the hubs anyways, it doesn't bug me. Which is what I had in mind in the first place. Again, I know it doesn't solve every problem or issue with the electric shift motors but I think it's going to be a very good option for those who are tired of their shift motors (or the zillion other components of the SOTF system itself) but who don't want to spend the time and money on a t-case swap. When I get this thing completley dialed in the way I want it I think it'll be a pretty darn good alternative solution---especially if I can get the cost down. Cuz right now the S-2 proto that you're looking at has almost $130.00 in parts it alone. Believe it or not......:toothless
