I have a 1.6 16v with its 4sp auto from a sidekick.

I saw this great write-up about fitting a mitsubishi gearbox (I can find that easiliy) to the 1.6 using the suzuki bell housing :

4sp OD MOD Replacement - Zukikrawlers

It allows to run a dana 300 (or atlas) directly. No divorced T-Case, I like that.

I ride mostly in woods, it can be dry in summer, but it's mostly freakin' wet/slipery all the time, so wheelspeed does matter. It's quite like the southern style riding in the US.

I also looked at a sidekick T-Case to dana 300 doubler (1.98 x 2.62 or 4.0) , but I don't know where I can find a such thing. It seems to me that the only people who have this setup did it themselves. I don't have the tools or know-how to make it.

Here is a gear calculator I like, it's really complete : Gear Ratio Calculator

Update on the rig. I was planning on upgrading the engine, trans, and t-case to run the Nor-Cal Rock, but the rig is just too much fun to wheel as it is now. The lack of power for getting trail to trail can be annoying, but it more than makes up for it when it starts to get rough. With that said we plan on running the Idaho X-Rocks series, so it's time to start getting the rig ready for dodging some cones. First thing is replacing the rear R&P. After years of abuse it finally had enough at KOH. I'm throwing in a new set up Trail Gear 5:29 gears along with all new bearings that I bought through Frontier 4x4. Here are a few shots from KOH. These were taken on Full of Love. Then as a bonus there are a couple of the gears.

Picked up that muffler, and it's still loud. Oh well, maybe once the rear is floored in, it will soften it.

Looks like a fun trip, jealous for sure.

Are you running a header? If so that could be part of it. I'm still running the stock manifold. Although my header just showed up at work today, so the entire exhaust system is going to be changed.

Yes, long tube header into 2.5" X 30" magnaflow, and then put the ricer tip muffler back on. It's a touch quiter, but still louder than yours.

I am running 39 krawlers and honestly i have thought about trading them for 37s a bunch of times. I think i could make R&Ps last longer and the reduced weight/height should help my gearing a bit. 1" of ground clearence is not that big of a deal!

That being said...39 krawlers are still the best tires ever made IMO.

Yeh I already break plenty of stuff on the 37's. I'm hoping that this will motivate me to step up to 9" axles. I also think with my WB at 110" I'll be better with the 39's.

Yep looks better with 39's

Pulled and sold the coil overs as well. Going to go with some air shocks. With how light the rig is getting it dialed in over the last few years has sucked. I was never happy with it. I'm also selling the winch due to it's size. It has been great over the years, but it just takes up too much room and is heavy. In the next few days the front end will be cut off and everything from the engine forward is going to get moved around. Any tube that is getting removed will be replaced with chromoly.

If there is a buyer I would sell it. At this point though I'm making some changes for a comp next month.

Yep I did in the past, but am going to step up and run unlimited in the Idaho X-rocks events. Cal ROCS and Cal Neva allowed 37-40" tires as well. For the last 2 years I have wanted to run W.E. Rock, but the schedule has never worked for me.

Working great so far. I'm headed to Fordyce this weekend to see how they do up there. I sold the coil overs and went with some Sway A Way 2.5 air shocks. After the first few min of driving on them I wished I went that route in the beginning. Replaced the 8274 as well with a Superwinch Rock98. I'll post up some photos in a bit. As far as breakage, I snapped my sway bar. Don't think it was due to the new tires. I definitely know there are bigger tires when just driving around, but did notice I drag a lot less in the rocks.

Do you have your link setup plugged into the 4linkcalc? If so I'd like to see what kind of numbers you're running. I'm a numbers geek...and since I live roughly 2,600 miles away it'd make it much easier to compare your setup to mine.
