Ok, i've been doing some reading and searching, Does anyone have a good source for information, I'm going to go w/ the complete Toyota drive train. I just don't know if I am going to go w/ the dual tcase setup(s) or one of the 4.?:1 setup(s)
the price by the time I would be done would be close to the same, Unless I find a killer deal, But I also don't know what is involed, the tech part doesn't bother me, I just dont'..well can't make my stupid mind up, and w/ my dead line to get a project finance proposal to the wife.(the old my money is her money, and her money is not mine. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> ).
ok back to work, <IMG SRC="smilies/sleep.gif" border="0">
Thanks guys.

If you've got the space to do it, go with the dual setup. For one thing, you get a lower overall low range (5.2:1) than with either of the low-range gear sets, and you get to keep the option of the stock 2.28:1 when you want it. You can always stick a low-range gear set in the rear 'case later if you feel the need.

Okay..... Getting back on topic here... <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

Go with the duals. Here's why:
  1. 5.2:1 vs. 4:1 or 4.7:1
  2. Driveline is only about 6.5" longer
  3. You can go with a low-range gearset later to be at 228:1 (assuming 5.29 R&P) without redoing driveshafts... again. <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">
  4. You get 2WD low (only 2.28:1). Put the first stick in low, leave the rear at 2WD high.. You're at stock toy low for tight turns in 2WD.
  5. It's CHEAPEST! From AllPro, the AA dual case adapter is ~$400 to your door. Find a rockin' good deal on a Toy 'case and you're wheeling ~130:1 for $500![/list=a]</font>

I got bored, so I figured I'd come back and post some more sheet in the 'other' japapnese wheeling vehicle board:
SUMO 6.1:1 Gearset:
  • 6.1:1 ratio
  • $1,025-ish price
  • Unproven gearset
  • Weak transfer case to put them in
  • No driveshaft mods
  • No driveTRAIN mods

MARLIN "ULTIMATE CRAWLER" (Dual Toy cases, 1 stock, 1 4.7:1 gearing)
  • 10.71:1 ratio (!)
  • $500(see my 1st post) + $650 for 4.7:1 = $1150
  • Strong, V8 proven case
  • Gears run over the Hammers & so on for years
  • Reqires new driveshafts
  • Adapter to fit to engine and so on...

So what it boils down to is:
If you are going to run Toyota (or Dana) axles, think you might want to run a whole Toy drivetrain someday, and want a 10.71:1 ratio, and don't mind hacking up a Zuki, go Toyota.

If you want to stay with the Sammy engine and axles, think the Sammy case will hold up, and will be happy with 6.1:1, go this route.

Oh, and the ultimate crawler setup IS useful. I've ridden in one (gimme a year and I'll have one, it's just the $$ during school) and they ROCK. I never thought I would need something that low, until my bud climbed a 60* hill at idle with 36's.

The jeep guys would just shake their head when he parked it up against a tree, and got out. At idle, it VERY SLOWLY putted along, digging 4 36" Swampers into the ground.

Even the little Jap 4-bangers will NOT die in that low of a gear.</font>

<font color="yellow">AA makes 4.0 gears $649... and they also make a 4.7, not sure about $$$</font>

<font color="yellow">SeaBass said he got his in the low-400's. But now that I think about it, it may have been on sale during October. <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"></font>

toy tranny has 3.93:1 x 2.28 x 2.28 x 5.29=108
<font color="yellow">Uhh... You're right, and I'm stupid? I dunno where I got 130:1 from. Guess I must have rounded, or used too many significant digits, or forgot to covert to Mols per milliLITER or something. <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"></font>
