Forward shifting style Transfer case seat
...or top shift chain drive t/case seat
Please Note: This seat is installed into the transmission shift base for all forward shifting style transfer cases, or for top shifting chain drive transfer case shift bases. Therefore, because any truck can only have at most one transmission with one forward shift transfer case handle (or one chain drive t/case), you only need to order one Blue shift seat per truck. Top shift transfer case shift handles do NOT use shift seats. So if you have a dual, triple, or even quadruple transfer case setup with the front Crawl Box configured as a forward shift, you only need to order one Blue shift seat.

If your transmission is not listed, don't despair! While we cannot guarantee if our seats will fit other applications, they have been found to fit other applications based on the bore diameter of your transmission's shifter base: Our Blue seats are designed for a 39mm bore, our Red seats are designed for a 41mm bore, and our White seats are designed for a 42mm bore.

* Application Disclaimer: If you are experimenting with a transmission we did not design our seats for, that's great! But be aware that if you order one & find it doesn't fit, you will be subject to a restocking fee if returned.
