what\'s shorter?

What's shorter?

1) 727 torqueflite with dana 300
or...
2) TH350 with dana 20

Please help...I'm almost ready to make a decision for the new driveline for my CJ-5.

The Advance Adapters catalog has the dimensions of every trans and t-case out there. Can't find mine right now, but I'm sure someone else has one that can look it up.

Found my catalog, turns out it doesn't have the length of a 727, but I'll bet if you call Advance Adapters they can tell you the length with adapters of both combos.

Re: what\'s shorter?

all i have is that the th350 is 21.5" long.. and the tf 727 says the housing is 16" long.. not much help.. sorry.. the d20/d300 are practically the same.. but if you can find yourself a 1980 jeep cj7 with an automatic.. they came with a shortshaft d300... where the rear output is about 2" shorter than a normal d300.. Elusive is running one in his.. infact its bolted up behind a tf727

Re: what\'s shorter?

Doesn't mean its not possible with a V-6 thats been pushed forwards. In that case a TH350 would bolt right up to either a Buick 3.8 or Chevy 4.3 (the TH350 can be found with either a Chevy or BOP bellhousing) and a D-20 can be made to go behind that. I saw it in a 4x4 magazine a while back...

Re: what\'s shorter?

I have a club mate that runs a 350/350 combo in his CJ5 with the DJ front end and it fits very well,,, snug,, but very well.

Hey, do you have a larger pic? I'm throwing a DJ grill onto the Scrambler and have one pic, but would like to see more.
