I just bought some shackles from autozone. They are the same amount of lift as the warriors. However, I don't recommend them as they induce alot of body roll because they don't have a center section as the warriors do. I'm having a set custom fabbed right now that will be stronger than the warriors for around $30.

I saw you wanted to switch to a manual T-case...

Are you suggesting you want to disable Control Trac? (as in have 2H 4H and 4L?)

If so, I read somewhere that if you add a switch inbetween the brown wire running to your t-case, you can turn on and off control trac on the fly. You may want to research that as a temporary solution if you want to have it for now while you wait to get a better t-case.

I dunno, if you do it tell me how it goes... apparently people like it! (Plus control trac gets really annoying when you are trying to do doughnuts!)

I have already done that mod with success.

The reason I want to swap is because the 1354 is stronger than the control trac 4405. Also, I don't want to trust a computer to shift the 4x4 for me when I'm in the mud.

Well since you already did it... can you provide me with some pics of what you did, and or intructions or information on how you did it? I was looking and found a bownish purple wire, and a brown-white wire, but I'm yet to be sure of the wire I'm looking to but a switch inline, so I don't wanna do anything yet.
