Forum member @snoranger donated a new Shiftster as a giveaway item for our 20th Anniversary Trail Ride, but it didn't arrive before I left for the event in Ohio. So I'm giving it away here instead.

The shiftster allows you to remove a faulty transfer case shift motor, and mechanically shift the transfer case by hand. I keep one of these in my tool kit, and used it once when I bought a 2001 Ford Ranger 4x4 that was stuck in 4LO. After finalizing the deal, I crawled under the truck, removed the (3) bolts holding the shift motor, unplugged it, bolted on the shiftster, turned the knob to 2HI, and drove it home.

I don't want to deal with the shipping to Canada, so I'm only offering this to people in the lower 48 states. Sorry.

To enter to win, simply reply to this thread that you're interested. You can only have one reply. The last day to enter is November 30th. I will use a random generator to pick a winner on December 1st.

Good luck!

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Somebody needed one of those at the trail ride. I offered to loan mine that day.

That's an interesting little device. I don't have a 4wd yet but my friend's rangers could probably use this. If I get my way come tax time I'll have a 4wd ranger.

Neat! I never knew those existed. Great idea! Any idea is these will work on the 2019s as well?

I'll take a shot too. Would be handy to have in my tool bag when we take the Ranger out west on a National Park tour.

Thanks @snoranger for even making this giveaway possible.

I won this from here about 5-6 years ago and never needed it. I figured it’s best to give it back to the Ranger community, hopefully it helps someone out.
