Re: Indexing Transfer Case

Hey Wild.

I got to looking at my Jeep without a body tonight and got to wondering about indexing the D300. I did a search and came up with this post. I was just wondering if you have made any progress. It looks like a project I might want to take on.

Thanks
Drew

Re: Indexing Transfer Case

Damn, WildCJ5, since you have the stock trans-tcase, there is a product out
there that consists of a ring with tapped holes that will allow you to clock
ypur D300. The only problem is that I can't remember which one of the 4x4 sites
I saw the write up on. Come awwwn guys, help out.

Re: Indexing Transfer Case

This was a post that I dug up. Wild may already have his transfer case indexed. But I'm investingating it. Is it as easy as it sounds? I have my body off, and I would like to index the xfer case to lower the tail end of my tranny. I'm in a pinch for time as I don't want to be in the rental storage unit for more than two months. But this sounds like only an afternoon's worth of work. If that is the case. I can index my xfer case, install body and worry about the shifter later. Can I just index it one position? I don't want to shove it too far, but my body isn't there to stop me. It sounds like my driveshafts shouldn't change, is this right?

Oh.... by the way..... any pics?

Thanks
Drew

Re: Indexing Transfer Case

Your driveshafts shouldn't have to change. The product I mentioned only changes
the drivetrain legnth about 1". Damn, I just wish I could remember the url
of that article.

Re: Indexing Transfer Case

I just installed the clocking adapter (along with 4to1 gears..yippee). Someone mentioned how it changes driveshaft length by 1".... actually it is much less than that. I think only 3/8".


Check it out:

You can find more info at Jeepwire... sorry I dont have the exact link.

Re: Indexing Transfer Case

this can't be done in all cases. i run a dana300 behind my np435 and i can't index it because the brackets that the shifter connects to will hit the tranny if i try it. i wish i could but can't. i sugguest that before anybody buy the ring that they get under their jeep and make sure they have the clearance to do so.

Re: Indexing Transfer Case

High5 you called it right!! I went back and looked at my transfer case. Right now the handle is about 1/4" away from the T176. That's not gaining much by clocking!! I still think I can do it some time in the future, but right now the body swap continues.

Just wanted to say thanks for saving me from getting in to deep once again.

Re: Indexing Transfer Case

Nice, but $195! Come on. Looks like something that could easily be made with a few careful measurments. A donut with holes in it and some bolts.
