4 By 2 Conversion For 4-Wheel Drives
A lightweight kit that converts 4wheel-drive Chevy, Ford or Dodge pickups to optional 4-wheel or 2wheel drive is now on the market.
Once installed, the All-Trap Company kit makes it possible to switch quickly in or out of 4-wheel drive right from the driver's seat.
Weighing only 12 lbs., the kit fits all model 1973 through 1979 1/z, 3 and
1-ton Ford, Chevy and Dodge pickups. These models use the 203 New Process transfer case which the AllTran conversion kit fits.
It includes a part that goes into the 203 transfer case, plus a set of lockout hubs that are installed on the truck's front axles.
Use of the kit on trucks that normally are 4-wheel-drive can improve gas mileage as much as 30%, it is claimed, plus improve tire life and eliminate the annoying vibration of driving at cruising speeds in 4wheel-drive.
According to Brian Willig, general manager of All-Trap Transmission Parts of Indiana, over a thousand of the kits already have been sold. The kit weighs only 12 lbs. and any transmission shop can install it, says Willig. Also, the company suggests that buyers themselves can install the kit. No special tools are needed. In stallation time is about 45 min. Cost of the kit; including shipping, is $280.28.
