Putting in a 2nd Samurai T-case

I have two transfer cases and know I've seen some posts on here about putting in a 2nd t-case? I know that X2_RAGE was going to do a dual t-case swap and I was wounding how it worked out? Does anyone have any pic's of how to install 2 t-cases? What do you need to do the job, how long would it take, could you use two stock t-cases or do you need one to have a GRS in it? I know that if one had a GRS in it and a stock one, it would be VERY LOW!!! I'm looking at anya and all info I can get to do the swap! Thanks in advance!

Re: Putting in a 2nd Samurai T-case

now i'm just guessin here but if you used a sidekick tranny and tcase and a sami tcase behind that wouldn't it work out better???? the sidekick is setup for inline transfer to the rear axle

Re: Putting in a 2nd Samurai T-case

I have to admit I cannot comment on the 2 transfer case part...but Brian I wanted to complement you on your very good web page and one TOUGH Samurai. That thing is HUGE!!!!

Congratulations on a fantastic project...and good luck with it in the future (why do I like it? I own the same truck, only a few feet shorter on 205s NOW)

Re: Putting in a 2nd Samurai T-case

Thanks Loweguy, but my Zuk isn't that big! Their is alot of guys on here that have bigger Zuks then me! But, Thanks! I really haven't done anything to my web-page for a few months!

About the Kick t-case I bet it would work better! I only have two stock Samurai t-cases! I know that Shaffer Offroad has a Kick and Samurai t-case in his Zuk! Just woundering if I can do it with the stock Samurai one! Thanks guys! I'm off work for the next three days and will tinker with the idea, I'll let you know what I find out!

I pulled this pic off the thread about coil suspension. Check it out! Looks pretty complicated to me unless you can figure a way to remove the front drive portion of the sidekick tcase

Re: Putting in a 2nd Samurai T-case

Your zuk is huge! Keep us all posted if you figure a way with the t-cases. Have you called Tom woods? Because here in utah six-states spells "very bad service".
JUst had to vent some frustration towards them.

Re: Putting in a 2nd Samurai T-case

hummm I was tinkering with the idea the other day...and I was thinking of using two stock cases. heres my rough idea take a stock case and have it's input running off the front output of the first case (turn aroud the second case so its actualy running in revese) This would kill clearence since you would have to have the second case dropping below the first but that's jsut my 2cents worth.

I attached a drawing to better illustrate

Re: Putting in a 2nd Samurai T-case

What would you do as far as a shifter for the second t-case? Just climb out and shift it from underneath?

Re: Putting in a 2nd Samurai T-case

Hey, then you could have a rear PTO port! I'm sure the linkage to the second transfer could be figured out.

Re: Putting in a 2nd Samurai T-case

At risk of a bad memory, I beleive I saw a dual T-case setup at the melt this year. He put the second case between the tranny and original case.
