My 10yr long PROJECT.....

Hello everyone...My name is John...and I haven't been on here for a long,long time.

I'm not even sure my screen-name is the same.

Anyway....I've had my 86 Sammy for over like 10yrs....and it pretty much been on the back-burner all these years.

I plan on working on this thing soon...before my other projects (I have sooo many)

This is what i have to work with:

86 Sammy...body yanked off the frame

Engine and tranny off a 2000 4X4 S-10 (vortec4.3/4l60/T/C)

6-lug Dana 44's (off an old Cherrokee, I think...offset rear pumpkin)

3" YJ springs.

The frame was plated for strength on the whole inside. The engine is in place. I was planning on using a 200R4 and the stock T/C...but since I have a 4x4 auto tranny, might as well use that.

I'm not using the stock S-10 pushbutton T/C, though.

What should I use for a T/C ?? I was told a Dana 300 ??

What you think ??

Now my rear axle is an offset unit.....due to the original plan of using the stock T/C.

What should I do now if using a center output T/C.

I need tpo blow off the inches of dust and get back on this thing.

Thank guys for your help

John

Personally, I'd just go for whatever case you can adapt to the rear of the 4L6 trans and locate the outputs to your axles . Makes things easier in the long run . Most folks here stick pretty much to Suzuki parts , the guys on Pirate take things to the next level . Otherwise, you could swap out to the Toy axles and use the centered rear output ....

This board has been pretty dead for the last few years . Lately since the new format it's gotten worse yet . There are a lot of V6 Zuks out there lurking though....
Been to the Zuhwarrie.com site yet?

My last Zuk had yota axles, a 2.8L V6 with a T5 tranny and Dana 300... it all worked good, but sine you've got Dana's with offset pumpkins, then I'm not sure a D300 would be the best option for ya?? Maybe sale the D44's and buy some Yota axles or cut the rear axle for an offset?
If I were you, I would get yota axles and a built 1.6L with set of t-case gears!

Thanks for the reply. However, I have the D44's already (which are stronger), and the 2000 4.3 V-6, so I just don't want to change everything around again.

If anything, mabey just run a center rear D44.

What about a D18 TC...where are there outputs ??

does anyone else think that dana 44s are stronger? Just curious, not trying to flame, just never thought that. I have always heard that yota axles and dana 60 being equal in strength but toys have birfs which negate after everlongs, and they are lighter...

My friend had a 4.3 in his sammi with stock axles, didnt last long... ran the nuts though.
