I was just imagining how truly wikid this thing is gonna be with some proper gearing. That is all good, If I were to stay with a sami Tcase I would probably elect to go with 6.5:1 gears but I would loose valuable over the road ratios.
These are considerations that will factor in.
Pros to Toyota T case:
No more compound angle, easier to work vibrations out.
Easy add 2nd case in the future
can be obtained cheaply enough
1:1 H range even with crawler gears.
Pros to Samurai T case:
Its already there.
Any other pros to the Sami T case over the Yota?
I really need this truck to be as vibration free as possible at highway speeds, even in 4H. I have a really long ways to go to work in some adverse conditions.
I have pretty much decided to go with the yota case but of course I'm ready to change my plan with the introduction of any new data.
Oh, just got a 93 4runner non-cv drive shaft from Ebay.
Open to input.
my transfer case is regeared, unsure what the ratio but in 4wd low first gear learches forward at idle with a top speed of 10-15 mph in 5th with the samurai transfer case. when i hit the road i just pop it into 4wd high and have no problems cruising along to the next trail at normal gearing. i have also heard of stronger case/housings available for the sam trans, but mine is completely stock, and do serious rock crawling with no troubles.
