Thinnest dual Toy case adapters

Who makes the thinnest Toyota dual transfercase adapters? Or are they all the same thickness? I am trying to put dual Toy cases into my 1991 YJ. Also see the thread "How Low is to low?"
Thanks
Rick

Marlin/AA's adapters add something like 6.5"?

If length is the issue, maybe just drop in the lower gearsets...

Length isnt a big issue. I plan on extending the wheel base as much as possible. I plan to run 39.5" TSLs. So I will be doing alot of cutting.

to my knowledge they're all the same thickness. kind of have to be since they're reusing stock parts. If you're gonna run a t350 or 700r4 you could save a bit of length buy using one of the short t350 to Toyota tcase adapters, i think it's 1.5" long.

Do you have any other information about remote shifters? Do they have a website by any chance?

I don't think his websites up. gear reduction + adapter is 6 3/8" come in cast for 500 and billit for 600. there abouts in price. I think I have the only cast adapter so far. after 2 years he's had them. never any problems. jack is a nice guy. just watch it on the phone he will talk both your ears off. he does have remote sifter kits and they are fully top notch. Nicest I've seen.

Yeah, the low range box (first tcase) and the adapter stack in front of the second T-case, and make the drivetrain ~6-1/2" longer.

I'm not Seabass but I got mine there. Randy's a great guy to deal with. Got my adapter in like 3 or 4 days.

Last time I was on his site looking around the Toy adapters were still not displayed under any products. I had to call him at 301-791-6869

The OTT D300 crawler will save you 2" in drivetrain length, compared to a toy crawler, as well as *other* benefits.

I rarely see a toyota case go bad. but when 2 d300's loose low range within 10' of each other in the sluice box I would reconsider. one was flex40 on this board, and the other was keith from rock zombies helpin todd and I pull out flex40. There was definatly no gettin it when it broke.as a mateer of fact not much was even goin on.

I gotta agree with noodles. That was the second d300 that Travis has blown up. The first time he did, he also broke the output shaft. That was with a 3/4 ton d44 in the front, so he was being careful so that he wouldn't blow an axle. The second one he upgraded to the AA output shaft put in new gears and was not abusing it when the second set went. The AA shaft held up. He had to wheel from the sluice all the way to tahoe in 4hi. He did have a 60 in the front but was not gettin' it when they (gears)blew out. He his now using a 208, which has held up so far.

Hmmm, first I've heard of gears not holding up. The outputs, I knew about. If I blow the gears up an atlas will bolt right into it's place.

they say a atlas is as stong as a 205 but the reliability is that of a 300. I would never waste money on a atlas either.

Invent a "real" twin stick for a toy case and I may change my mind. A NP205 is out of the question... no gearsets, clocking rings and they are heavy and big as fawk.
(I was part of the team that used and tested Jesse's first disco, don't want to go that route either as I want it to be streetable) Also not sure where you're getting the "reliability" story on the Atlas. I think that it is largely a waste of $$, but if I add all of the upgrades to my D300, I'll be just short of the real deal. There are a lot of peopel running an atlas and very few complaints.

I'll put my vote in for the OTT adapter. I just finished putting one in my buggy. Best mod you can do. Twin sticking is awesome.

Everyone talks about how, Oh he wasn't "gettin it" when some thing broke. I'd say that they are probably forgetting how much he was "gettin it" on some thing else before. Probably fractured something along the way and it just decided to give out then.

Not specific to the incident you're describing. I am just saying in general people usually don't look back at the history of what those parts have been put through.
