No 350 is not too much if it runs good.

Or you could get a kicker 3 like from OTT and it would be a pretty simple fab. More $$$ though.

then you have to worry about the front axle because If it is 2wd.. yada yada...

If it were me and were to do this. I would buy it and then buy a samurai and go from there. get the engine and pwr steering from it.

If you really wanted it in a tracker you would need to also get a sami front axle and another tracker 3rd member.

Short answer is yes...

Long answer is, you will either need to do a body lift on the tracker, or cut the tunnel out to get it to fit (the way the samurai T-case mounts, it will hit the floor pans and won't mount properly). As well as fabbing up frame mounts for the case, and making an intermediate shaft to connect the tranny to the transfer case, which to me would be the easy part....lol

A tracker 4WD tranny/transfer would be a better option if you can find one, which should be too hard. That should just bolt right up.

EDIT: You will also need a front axle like Puddle Jumper said. A Sami axle with 2" wheel spacers on either side, and the correct gears (should be 5.13's, but don't quote me on that) will work and make for a nice SAS's rig.

Why do people still even consider sammy front axle swaps.

Trackers are far too heavy for them.

Do yourself a favor by not wasting money & time. Do toyota's or dana's.


SNAP CRACKLE POP , we did two SAS's with sammy fr. axle, didnt listen to people. STUPID mistake.
