LWB Build-up............Update

Well I've decided to keep the LWB all-Suzuki except for the axles. I'll use the 1.6L EFI out of the rolled SWB I just bought, as well as the 4.16 transfercase out of it. A friend has a Tracker auto tranny he doesn't need, so I'll buy that and try to find a stock Tracker transfercase. I'll mount the 4.16 case behind the Tracker case (assuming it has a centered rear output) with a short shaft to make a dual transfercase set-up. As for axles, I'll either use the Toyota axles out of the rolled SWB, or the narrow-track Cherokee Dana 44s I have - not sure which yet. I'd still like to go with a coil suspension if it'll work with either of these axles.

So the result should hopefully be a crawly carbless climber.

Anyone here who knows more than me (pretty much all of you) please let me know if this will work. Is there anything I may have overlooked?

Re: LWB Build-up............Update

Sounds great Ray, I can't wait to see how it turns out. I guess this means you're not selling it to me then eh [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Good luck and if there's anything I can help with considering my limited abilities, give me a call.

OTT can modify a tracker T-case so a toyota T-case will bolt directly to it. That would give you a clean, bullet-proof dual T-case. They are up there in Canada somewhere too

Re: LWB Build-up............Update

Randy, you mean have dual toy cases right?

Ray I'm watching what you do to your rig.....I was looking at adding a nissan divorced case in the middle. it has 1:1 Hi and 2.27 Low...so hiway speeds would be tolerable.....

Re: LWB Build-up............Update

no, they mount a toyota T-case to a modified Tracker T-case, looks sweet. I got Land Cruiser axles so it wouldnt work for me. Too bad.

Re: LWB Build-up............Update

Thanks Rog. I may take you up on that offer. Zooky and Danny, is there any reason not to use the Zuk divorced case and instead go with Toyota or other? Strength perhaps?

One glitch that a friend pointed out last night was that with the auto tranny and ultra-low gearing via dual transfercases the brakes will find it near impossible to hold the truck back when in gear and I may find myself constantly shifting between drive and neutral. But others have similar gearing with auto trannys right. How have they dealt with this problem?
