thanks for the links, i wanna build a jeep in formula off road style, but not quite so intense, im still on a college budget. i plan on making 400 to 450 horse with a 33 or 35 tire. most of my play will be mud,water crossings, and sand/loose soil. ill be using either cut boggers or scoops though. i dont know much about this dana 20 case, but its not lookin like its up to the task.

a dana 20 will easily survive 35's in light weight rig and 400 hp. my jeep wag's previous set up was 4.88's, th4oo, and built 360. i broke the stock quadratrac with this set up really fast. i rebuilt the quadratrac and put the warn part time kit in it and it lasted a little more but broke rather quickly too at only about 3ooo miles. i swaped in a stock dana 20 from the rear of a buick powered wag and never had problems. the dana 20 took massive beatings and never had a problem.

400-500hp

What motor/Tranny will you be running?

I'd run 205 if I were you....

Down side is they are heavy as crap.

Plus side is they are twice (if not more) strong as a D20.

X2 on the 205.

I'm no D20 expert, but for that type of application I would think you'd be looking for a little more beef.

im fortunate enough, that in my carnage days before i came back to school i accumulated a lot of sbc parts. only thing i will need to buy is pistons, i pretty much everythign else laying around except bearings. plus small block parts are cheap dude, 400 to 450 out of a big inch small block is cake.

im building a 390 sbc for it. fuel injected should make about 440 horse. yeah i was curious about the 20 if it owuld handle it. i have it just layin around thought maybe i could finally put it to use, all my other toys are fullsize heavy bitches. im willing to carry the extra weight to not be replacing transfer cases and adapters. ive spent snough time fixking broken stuff so i try to start out strong.
