Creating a 2 LO in a 06 3500 4wd
I own a 2006 chev 3500 drw 4wd with an automatic and a duramax engine.
Without getting into to much detail I tow heavy and often. Frequently I encounter long steep grades and it would be ideal to have a 2 LO option to benefit from the low gearing of the transfer case. Much like a splitter.
I used this frequently in my f350 but it had lockout hubs.
Does anyone know how I could keep the front end from engaging while inside the truck on our pickups?
A solid explanation of how it engages so I can figure it out for myself.

I had a posi-lok cable actuated actuator in my front diff on the 95. I replace the thermal actuator with a rod, and a cable with a t-handle under the dash. I could put it in 4 low and not pull the handle, making it 2 low. I don't know if they make them for your year truck. I have heard of guys cutting a wire running to the front actuator, then running extensions off that wire to an incab switch. put in 4 and leave the switch off and you have 2wd, if you flip the switch the actuator pushes the rod out and you have 4wd. i don't know if it will work on the push button t-cases, but it did on the manual case
