Re: Dana 20 \'vs\' Dana18 Whats the diff? How to tell?
There is a big writeup in the last, or the month before, issue of four wheel drive and off road about it. I i have a 63 CJ5 with a dana 18 and i love the love range. The dana 18 from the story has the drive shaft attach lower than any other transfercase avaiable in jeeps. It may be of use to run in a newer jeep, because of driveshaft angles, this case would reduce the rear angle. I run a 4 inch lift with no problem of vibrations. And if you put an 18 in a YJ or TJ you can get a license plate from the magazine.
