semi OT... Divorced T-Case????

I have another project that will be in the works with left over parts from 2 Jeeps and my swampbuggy. I will be needing a divorced style T-case for the engine/tranny combo I'll be using. I really don't need a dual range case, I'll be getting my gear reduction another way, but it would be perfered.

My questions are:

1.) What vehicles had them? (years/models)
2.) What models were they?
3.) any models to be avoided?

Just want to know what to look for incase I find a deal on one someplace.

Re: semi OT... Divorced T-Case????

You'll have to do a little research on donor vehicles but the 2 most popular divorced cases would probably be the Dana 24 and the NP205. Both have cast iron cases, gear drive, centered rear output, 1.96:1 low and they both weigh a ton.

Here you go ...

Dana 24 - Ford F250, 1960-1973

NP205 - Dodge, 1969-1993 - GMC, 1969-1991 - Ford, 1969-1979

Both are strong gear cases.

Another one that may be an option is the suzuki samurai T-case, it is a divorce style. with that you could get low gear gearset for it. Just a thought, i don't know how much you want to keep it all american.

Sammi cases are strong ...but I cracked mine with a 1.3 . If he is going to run any major power I would stay away from the sammi . With that said I see guys run 3.8s and 4.3s with sammi t cases and no failures . Maybe its just luck of the draw .

Re: semi OT... Divorced T-Case????

I'm sorry....can't resist:

from the John Wayne movie "McClintock":

"Divorce? Isn't that where you pay a woman NOT to live with you?"

"Yes Draco, that's about the size of it."

"Hmmm....with some women I know it'd be worth it...."
