Transfer case swap from NP 205 to Dana 20?
What is everybody's opinion on me doing this. I am tempted to but the one thing that concerns me is the strength of the Dana 20 behind my 392. It is not the healthiest engine in the world but it is in a 3/4 ton truck with 38's. Also my freind managed to destroy his in his Wagoneer with a 360 and 33's.
The main reason why I would go to the Dana 20 is for the better low range.
I also was considering that since my truck is a divorced transfercase making a double transfer case setup involving the dana 20. I can almost get away with simply a u-joint between the output of the 20 and the input of the 205 and backing them together that way. Making mounts for the transfer cases is not a problem either. I am still in high school and have access to a very competant metals shop where I could create just about anything.
I just want an idea of whether or not to have just a Dana 20, both the 20 and 205, or just stick with what I have. My dad thinks I am an idiot for thinking about the double idea, just wondering what everybody else thinks.
