Was surfin the web and came across this on the Spidertrax website. It is their STX 1:1 - 2:1 gear splitter. I sent them an e-mail and here is the reply

Hi Art,

It will be available this month. Check the website for further details.

Thanks,

I thought that there was a klune-v out for the sami. But it's a 1:1 - 4:1 selectable. I think I saw it on rocky-road's web site. I think it was pretty expensive though.

I talked to them a few months ago about it. At that time they were not in production but if sombody wanted one that they could make it for them. It was $1300 and that was just the case and gears. You need to fab your own crossmembers, mounting points, dshafts, brackets, etc.. Brent also has one in production, I think his is suppose to be a little more reasonable.

As for the KluneV, I don't belive that they are in production for samurais anymore. Prolly because of the cost. $2500 is too freakin' much $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$:eek:

Nope.

It was the complexity of the install that killed it. You had to get the tranny and the kluneV aligned perfectly - and it wasn't easy. Too many people was calling klune about it, and it was costing money to do the support.

Of course, that's the rumor I heard.

that's why I did dual toy transfer cases, with the RingeR. Better, Stronger, and no alignment issues.

did they also tell you that you need to move your tcase back about 3-4 inches?

This isnt a direct replacement for the jack shaft.....
Shane's right, but the 3-4 inches isn't a problem for the "buggy boys". Someone needs a reasonably priced splitter that will bolt in as a direct replacement for the input shaft. Then us in the "stock class" can play hard too :D

This is correct ;)
The install isn't that bad - you just have to have some rudamentary fabrication skills & the will to do some serious sheetmetal surgery :D

I e-mailed Spidertrax, with some other q's and asked about the splitter. Just got this back from Tom Kingston:

Ahhh...I am glad you ask. Check out the website this coming up Monday. I think you will be happy!
