Reverse TransferCase

Does anyone make a mated or bolt-up reverse transfercase? Similar to an atlas but a reverse box.
Thanks for your response

SCS makes something like that, I think it is divorced, but it could probably be married with enough $$$ and machinework.

A few minutes in your shop should give you the answer. Verify the direction of rotation of the trans. outout, then turn the pinion of the axle the same direction. Does it rotate the wheel hub the direction (forward) that you want?
If your planetary axles truely "turn reverse" then with a rear mounted engine they would "turn forward". Most guys that run rear engine buggies flip the axles so they rotate the proper direction (this will usually require something to address pinion oiling).

What planetary axles do you have? Clarke? Hurth? Spicer?

Check out Skipped Link's Monster Buggy and Throttle Happy's Bad Ass Rhino, also Ian from Extreme build a rear engine Duramax powered buggy.

Most planitary axle's have a removable 3rd, so you can remove that and flip it around.
