View Full Version : double t-cases

I'am thinking on doubling my t-cases in the future along with a twin shift for 2 low (keeps the front drive shaft from spinning). I was thinking of going with a 4.0 and the stock 2.28. (with my 5.29's I believe the final drive ratio would be around 190:1).
My question is which case should have which gears ?
I don't do a lot of "hardcore" crawling, (I can get to where I need to.) the reason I'm thinking of upgrading is that there have been a few times when some more gearing would help.
Any suggestions ? :confused0006: Thanks.

Gears Always go in the Rear case.

Otherwise if you put them in the front that puts extra stress on the input of the 2nd case = *POP* goes the input shaft

You'll love the duals. If you don't have the cash right now, even just 2 stock duals without the 4.0s makes a HUGE difference.

Also, I would recommend Marlin's 4.7s over the other gears choices (4.0, 5.0 etc). He designs his gears stronger than the others out there[cheers]

Are the 2.7 stronger tan the 4.0 or the 4.7:1 ?

2.7? stock is 2.28. also its 21 spline.

if you get 4.7's with 23spline then it would be alot stronger then stock.

I have broken a stock 21 spline input to my rear case. which is why I now have 23 spline 4.7's for my rear t case.

[stupid]

You'll be happy, but depending on how hard you wheel your toy you'll want more. I do[36]

Start with the stock duals for now, then try it out and see what you think. You say you 'don't do a lot of "hardcore" crawling' so I'd bet you'll be happy with just stock duals:cool:

I have 2 2.28 cases and 5.29s. I'm running 35s at the moment and it goes sloooooooow. It doesn't seem to go any faster reving it at 3000rpm then at idle.[15]

I can't imagine having 4.7s in one case. Seems useless to me.:confused0006:

You're obviously not into rock crawling then. Mine doesn't go slow enough with stock duals, 5.29s and 36s

give taran a call at bcc he can hook you up with what ever you need he sells a couple different brands of the adaptrors and gear sets and good prices i havent found its worth bringing it in from the states my self for what he sells it for
or if your going with the aa adaptor i think b is a dealer for them

check out marlincrawler.com lots of info on there. check out the comparison between marlins and a/a adaptors and gears.


1 word of advice, dont do what i did and have the front case in low and the rear case in 4hi........... apparently that breaks input shafts.
