I acquired a 98 T6 over the winter. Added a flow divider and 3 new circuits to the machine.

1&2 are on a 2 spool joystick valve and operate 1- grapple/4n1 type attachments for the loader. Plus, 2-tilt (side to side but curl) making it a 6way loader.

The rear got a new joystick handle w two buttons to control the new hydraulic thumb.

A little housekeeping to do and I'll get some jobsite pics tomorrow....

You've done what so many of us want to do!
Can you give us a list of the valve part numbers and any other components that you used?

Main parts of upgrade :

titanattachments skidsteer tilt plate sstilt 1200
2 spool joystick valve w pwr BYD 200
Priority flow divider 50
12v solenoid cylinder valve 75
Summit hydraulics joystick handle w rocker switch 150
A lot of hose & fittings 250
Linville hydraulic thumb 200

Using the power beyond outlet from the loader valve, I installed the divider to spilt flow to the thumb (solenoid /switch handle) and new joystick valve. The joystick valve is a bit left of the steering wheel and controls the side to side tilt of front attached implements... Along with any additional function, like grapple or 4n1. I can use both hands at the same time to affect loader and mounted functions. The solenoid valve is mounted on the wheel well. While the divider is in the nest of hoses under the bh controls.

I used a longer hydraulic cylinder on the advice of the maker that allows the thumb to lay mostly flat on the stick.

The terramite is a great platform to modify bc there's a lot of space and passages for hose. I'm pretty happy with the added features. Currently working on a tilt bh bucket using a helac rotator I got cheap on eBay. It will be paired with a selector valve allowing the joystick switch to control the thumb or tilt. By the time that is operational I'll be 3k into mods (including the gemplers tire goo). About 1/2 my purchase price for the bh. Worth every penny in my trail, pond and drainage work!

The sstilt unit from titan attachments is a female skid-steer --> tilt mechanism --> male skid-steer. So all we did to it is weld up a pin pattern for the bh terramite on the machine side... I'll get more pics.
