A friend and I were discussing the fact if he changed from a manual transmission, he would also need to get an offset pumpkin rear end, like a quadratrack offset. His response was only a quadratrack needed the offset, and a regular automatic would be the same as a manual rear end..What is correct? Which direction would be the offset? As usual thanks for the help...seeya...

as far as i know, only the q-track and the OLD dana 18 x-fer cases used offset rear ends. if your friend runs a torqueflight tranny with a dana 300, it will be centered... just like the auto jeeps from the factory are centered

it's sort of still a cj thingy....

The tranny has nothing to do with the axle offset. It is the transfer case that drops the axles. If you use the same transfer case the the axles are the same. You would have to have new driveshafts built though since auto trannies are longer than manuals

not allways... just today me and jeepgod pulled a t-18 from an old J-pickup and it had a spacerbetween the tranny and the bellhousing, making the driveline exactly the same length as the th400/q-track combo we had laying right next to it. i doubt they ever put that spacer into a cj, but i don't think a tf 999 or 904 is much longer than a t-18 or t-5
