    I received the strong box from behemoth fab on Wednesday. It would not shift into low range. It was very upsetting.

    My dad and I troubleshot it and determined the sleeve that the shift rides on was shifting because it did not fully sit on the housing.

    Here is the bolt hole.

    Here is the sleeve in the position where it bolts. The sleeve would shift the fork over when it was tightened.

    Here is my fix.

    A little extra needed clearance on the fork.

    I guess now I will put it in and see what happens when torque is applied to it.

    I used an empty 1354 case as my mockup transfer case and figured out if I cut the mounts for the dampener off, it fits real nice without modifying my radius arm cross member. I was originally going to use the dampener mounts to make a transfer case frame mount with a Dom bushing but I had all kinds of clearance problems. Behemoth DT sent me a mounting kit for the strongbox with a Dom bushing that will work quite nicely so I will use that instead. I decided to cut the mounts off of the good transfer case so no turning back now.

    The doubler is really hard to shift into high. really easy to shift to neutral. somewhat hard to shift into low (easier than high). Jacob from behemoth fab told me to shift it while the vehicle is rolling, which is about the only way to get high to engage and even that takes forever to accomplish. :thumbdwn:

    I tore the strong box out to see why it is still not shifting right. When I pulled the drain plug, the magnet on the plug was full of fine metal shavings... SWEET!

    The disk is rubbing the shift fork still. It rubbed itself through.

    So I clearance it. Can't have metal on metal rubbing like that.

    [​IMG]

    The result is nothing is really rubbing now and still hard to shift.

    The slide on the fork is quite a bit smaller than a factory fork. This is my binding problem.

    Talked to jacob on the phone. He said he is going to make me a new strongbox and it will take 3 weeks.

    Here is the clearance between my radius arm crossmember and the transfer case. The plan is to clearance the floor board and clock the transfer case up to clear the crossmember.

    At another standstill with the doubler. I developed a bad leak coming from the rear of the doubler. Tore it out and the bearing was out of the housing 1/2". It never had the snap ring installed... Sent jacob a message and he is shipping me a snap ring. The doubler should be good when i get a snap ring in there.

    Meanwhile i trimmed my radius arm crossmember to make installing the transfer case much easier. I also removed the wires for the abs speed sensor at the transfer case.

    Update: I got the snap ring and the doubler is back together. Now I got to install it under the explorer.

    I thought I was gonna cause a traffic accident. My buddy's house is a long a busy road and the amount of people that got distracted by this was funny to watch!
