I'm sorry I searched and could'nt find anything on useing the whole married setup out of a tracker and then putting my sami case with low gears behind it. I'm thinking of swapping to toy axles and will lose my 5.12 diff gears. I have 5.14 low range gears and with dual cases I think I could have good gearing for 35" tires with stock toy diff gears. Has any body done this yet? I will likely have to extend my wheelbase for driveshaft angle but a little longer would be good anyway. Any input would be killer thanks!!

I currently have a 2.0 tracker engine with a 98 trans and transfer case doubled to a sami transfer case. It all comes out a little over two inches longer than the stock sami drive train. This is only because of the 98 bellhousing being deeper than the earlier model trackers. Does this make sense?

I can get some pictures if wanted. I'm still in the middle of building my sami too.

I started something similar, but didn't finish. 1.6 tracker, 3 speed auto with married track t-case, Sami 4:1 divirced case, FZJ80 LC axles with 4.88s and e-lockers running 36" IROKs. Here are 2 pics of how my dual cases were being mounted. (this was in a Sami frame)

I just finished mine

I just did my own adapter, I mounted both t cases together solidly, otherwise the u joint in the middle will vibrate. with some know how and a torch and welder it can be done, it is long though so without the ott adapter the samurai will have to be stretched.

I did it with an RX7 trans, even though it was 6" too long. Anything is possible if you fabricate! :D

I just built a CV center shaft to connect the two.
