I run Inchworm dual cases (2.28:1 front and 5:1 rear) in my FJC. Call Jim @ Inchworm and he'll get you all setup. As for SAS kits; there are none available off the shelf, but there are plenty of places to buy the brackets to do it yourself.

Inchworm had their "lefty" case up at Rubithon last week. available to 5:1... I'd look at that before duals. Duals will require modding the gas tank

Not necessarily true - the Atlas 4 clears the gas tank without nodification to the tank, although a new or modified transfercase crossmember is required. All Pro sells the Atlas 4 setup for the FJ in 2 different ratios, 5.44 and 10.34 final ratios

Any one have thoughts on this as I have a full time 4wheel drive model with a 6spd Manual transmission. I would prefer to keep the rig full time 4wheel drive and have the crawl ability due to the local terrain (steep!) . . .

Just pondering this but the using the Klune may actually allow Me to keep the other systems (ATRAC, etc.) available since I don't currently have a SAS rig and could use all the help I can get?

Why do you need AWD? If you want to keep AWD, you can just stuff a crawl box in front of the factory tcase and be done with it. You will need to modify the gas tank in order to make the everything fit. When we did the crawler in my FJC we considered using the stock tcase, but I wanted the 5:1 gears in the tcase not the crawl box, so we did the Lefty.

I'll have to read up again on Your build up. I don't recall if the fuel tank mod was due to length or width issues though it appears the Klune is about as small as they come. My intention is to keep AWD with atrac, etc. in place and Yes just add a crawl box . . .

The gas tank was shortened due to the length of the crawler + tcase. The crawler adds about 8" in length to the drive train. I reshaped the front of the gas tank. Does Klune have an adapter for your tcase/transmission?

Not sure, I know they put a klune in a Suzuki so it may be possible . . . If anyone else knows please advise . . .

Thx, Eli

Well as of Fri. Klune does not have an adapter for My full time 4 wheel drive/ 6 speed manual trans Fj at this time (bummers) though they did come out with adapters for the older land crusiers (unknown at this time if that would work for My application). This could be a mute point if (in the future/ or if ever) the required adapters for the New auto trans equiped Fjc are not the same as the manual trans full time 4 wheel drive fjc (since there appears to be fewer 6Mt full time 4x4 models in the market) It would not be worth the expense to make adapters only for the full time 4x4 model.

Ps . . . Anyone have a 07 Fjc 6 speed trans and full time 4x4 transfer case to lend the "Klune" folks?

Swap in the 4-speed atlas, it fits great, works great, and offers tons of gearing ratios.
