If you have good luck with it, then more power to you glad somebody does. After this winter i won't reccomend them anymore. I e-mailed posi lock and they responded with, "this is a somewhat frequent occurrence in cold harsh climates, our only suggestion is to try and build a guard around it... yadda yadda thanks for your business". If i lived someplace without -30~40* temps and 20+ feet of snow a year i would run one.
Anywho end of thread hijack.
Floor shift all the way for a SAS candidate, much less wiring to worry about, no possible service 4x4 lights or anything. But when buying a used truck sometimes you can't be picky, gotta buy what you can find and afford.

I like the push button. I can simply push a button when I need to go in an out of 4wd. Comes in handy on snowy roads that have dry pavement mixed in. I don't have to bend over to shift into 4wd
if you are a mall cruiser instead of a real user then push button would be "cooler" but if you want your truck to WORK and know its going to work then the floor shifter is always the best. many friends i have had thier transfer cases malfunction. they SEEM weaker. i have not had any problems so far with my floor shifter.
My push button switch is great, but like others have said, push button is nice if you don't offroad a lot, plus mine has never failed me. Once it does fail me though, I'll have a different opinion.

Are floor shifters even an option anymore on brand new trucks?
06,07,08 Silverado, Sierra, Sierra Denali's, Tahoe, Yukon, Etc?
pushbutton rules in the snow and mud.
The cost of 241's and 261's are going to be astronomical if everyone starts to swap.
Has anyone tried to modify a 243 by taking the motor off the side of the case and fabing up some sort of linkage to connect to the shift arm.

I have the push button with the stupid autotrac and i had it changed to the floor shifter because of my transfer case going out because of the front drive shaft causing the case to crack or blow up because it not going out of 4 wheel drive and i would never buy a fabtech lift ever again because the say the front drive shaft wont vibrate and it did
i got a floorshift on my truck..only reason i bought it instead of a ext cab

excuse me? are you ****ing gay? i work my truck hard day in and day out. ive used my HD for hot shotting and pulled 9k lbs trailers up steep inclines through mountains and had to use 4wd and live in south florida where i wheel my truck in the mud and woods on a pretty regular basis. sorry if i prefer the comfort of my leather seats and push buttom 4x4 over floor shift, but dont accuse people that like the push button of being mall crawlers.Originally Posted by robsilverado
to the OP in your application you might want the floor shift. ill stick with my push button though

99-00 chevy/GMC floor or button shift are all still servo actuated. if you get under the truck and look there is no likage any more on new pickups. My friend has a 97 chevy that has a floor mounted shifter. And its is servo actuated!
