So I've been searching around for manual selectors for 4wd on 3rd gen rangers such as mine but haven't come up with anything. I finally broke down and made my own and modified the stock ford hubs but the only issue is I have to reach under the truck put it in 4wd. Is there something on the market or has someone made something so it can be switched in the cab? I've attached a picture of my rednecked hack job for reference. Thanks in advance

Yes, people have been putting handle there for awhile, there was a Knob called Shiftster that was plug and play, not sure they make them anymore
Some have cut a hole in the drivers side of the tunnel with a hinged cover so they can reach down and shift without getting out

OR

There is this conversion kit: https://behemothdrivetrain.com/products/borg-warner-transfer-case-electric-to-manual-shift-conversion

Basically a cable shifter that's similar to manual shifter in the cab
I looked into the shiftser a while back and they don't make it anymore. But as soon as payday rolls around I'm having that kit next day shipped to my house😂. That is exactly what I'm looking for thank you so much

Let us know if behemoth ever ships: I'd like to see them get a good review.
