Tacoma Dual cases

Been working hard to get the turn around time on crawl boxes and other INCHWORM products cut down, while still keeping the quality top notch!

Got duals?

Two questions,

What's your current turn around time for the Tacoma "crawlbox" (3.4/Auto/2.28s) configuration?

Do these come with a shifter, or just the shifter mounting plate and that's it?

Got a few dollars burning a hole in my pocket

Have you ever considered an install video? I've got mine mostly in, but it's been a struggle.

If you can avoid 4.7s in the front case I would. It adds so much extra stress to the input on the rear case.

To be safe I'm going to say 2-3 weeks but if you decide to use 2.28 in the crawl box I have this one already built (unless it sold this week)

What bolts go where, what to seal and what not to. Pretty much the whole thing. Took me a while to figure out the whole drilling and clocking thing. I think I have that sorted out now.

The cylindrical extension that goes in the back of the transmission, does that need RTV?

To be honest ill believe it when i see it, prove me wrong!!
I bitched to jim at inchworm back in 07 about this, and big mike at marlin the year after when i stripped out an input because i missed a step. I got the same answer as above, still no instructions out there. Include all the little shop tricks like what type of grease to use on the splines to prevent fretting and things like that. Trail gear actually has a good video on building a crawl box, but still!

When i built my duals the first time i used 3 write ups i printed off various forums, and when i built my lefty i used the same writeups and the instruction sheet that came with it that had some gaps like take various measurements but didnt explain what to do if they were out of spec.

I can now build a crawl box in my sleep, but it took me 3 tries to get it right, each time fucking up some little step and causing problems, breakage and rebuilds.

Did you not use any instructions? Would be a pain with out them..

Instructions say use red thread locker on the seal housing extension

Why?

So the lefty with all marlin parts(no trail gear) is 2,719 which comes with a 6 month limited warranty.
The inchworm adapter is 399.00
Mechanical to electric speedo 21.00
The shifter (if you dont have any J shifters around) is 114.45
All told its 3,253.45+shipping and a 6 month warranty for a single case 4.7

Trail Gear has a Verso left hand drop case with 4.7 for 2,000 with a 12 month limited warranty, and free shipping. It includes the adapter, shifter, and mechanical to electric speedo.

So my question is, what merrits does the inchworm case have that i should spend an extra 1200 dollars on it? And why, for an extra 1200 dollars, is the warranty not at least the same or better, instead of being half the duration? I'm normally a big low-range fan but i just dont see the benefits here.

For the record i'm heavily leaning towards another Atlas right now.

For that $1200 you are getting Japanese bearings. I am not sure what is in the Verso..

You are getting Marlin all spline 23 spline input vs TG 23.

Marlin 30 spline front out put vs I would guess stock used 27 spline front output.

Marlin 30 spline Mainshaft/ Rear Output. You probably already know but the 30 spline main requires machine work on some parts so it cost alot more and has more to it than just a Longfield or RCV mainshaft.


Whats the ETA on the Verso you are looking at?

I have a fully build Lefty with Marlin 4.7s , Marlin 30spline outputs on the shelf right now..

( All other Leftys are back ordered at this point)




Every has different needs it sounds like an Atlas would be the way to go for you.


I really Like the Tacoma crawl box set up the best personally.

The new age toy guys need to realize that never spend more than 1k on a Toyota case, as soon as you hit that point go atlas everytime! You can find them used for 1500 and up and you'll still be miles ahead.

Yea this, i have damn near atlas 4spd money in my dual/lefty setup and that was built before marlins prices went up built in 2008ish)! No complaints so far, but i should have went 4spd atlas when i logically think about it.

As to the verso vs lefty, i would go lefty as its a more compact unit and doesnt hang down as low.

Im also glad to see lowrange supporting the lefty, i was worried for a while where i would get parts if i broke it (that custom gear inside).

Went with a dual inchworm doubler in my old tundra, went with an atlas 4 in my Tacoma this go round because fuck dual cases for the money and their shit reliability.

Seriously though, go atlas and never go back, ever.
