would be cool to have a unit to bolt up between the motor and tranny for ultra low gears. probably just matter of time.

there is allready a Ranger gear splitter out there that bolts between the bellhousing and the tranny but they are not extreme reduction / overdrive (mine is 27% ) . I dont think most trannies would handle and extreme input reduction scenario very well.

this may sound like a stupid question but whats the advantage of having dual transfer cases?

Mostly for when you're standing around your truck, and people look inside and say "whoa! whats with all the shifters!?" Then you can sitback and bullshit about it for a bit. ;)

ill take that as a yes, i like them they're cool you don't see a whole lot of them around here

Tmax
10-31-2006, 07:43 PM
thanks. they are cool but sometimes a pain in the ass. there are a few around but not too many people drive them. they just sit.[16]

don't they have like only 80-90 horsepower and like 150 ft pounds of torque with an inline diesel??

Tmax

that sounds about right. it depends on the model though. the none turbo motors could have up to 130 horse and 360 foot pounds of torqe. you can turn the 85 horse verion into the 130 by turning up the pump and timing. the turbo versions with intercooler have up to 280 horses.

I am getting one
spoke to Kyle a few times working out the details to get the drivetrain as short as possible
