Marlin crawler "lefty" sale!

RockSolidToys
Marlin Crawler "Lefty" Sale!





Regularly priced at $1995.00, RockSolidToys has them at $1895.00 with free shipping for the first three customers. Others have them priced at $1995.00 plus an additional cost for the front plate adapter. With Marlin Crawler and RockSolidToys, the front adapter is already included.

RockSolidToys is happy to bring to you the strongest Lefty on the market at the lowest price available at this time. The Marlin Crawler "Lefty" takes advantage of all the upgrades that have been installed in the Marlin Crawlers and with the help of RockSolidToys is bringing it to you at the lowest price.

Now all of us Tacoma owners can take advantage of lower gears without the hassle of drive shaft modifications and floor pan modifications. True, you wont have the versability that a dual case setup will provide you but you will get the advantage of having 4.70:1 low range gears and for those with the automatic transmissions, you can manually shift through the gears to get the range you want.

The benefits of the Marlin Crawler "Lefty"

The first and most obvious upgrade is the use of Marlins Crawlers Total Spline technology.


In the picture below you can see the difference between a stock styled input shaft and the Total Spline input shaft from Marlin Crawler.


Next is the use of Marlin's double row bearing instead of the single row bearing found in the stock gear case and others leftys.
Here is the difference between the stock style single row bearing found in the stock case and others crawler box's and Marlin's double row bearing.

Stock style single row bearing.


Marlin Crawlers double row bearing.


Marlin Crawlers 4.70:1 XD Gear set found in the Marlin Crawler "Lefty"

Exploring the New 4.70:1 XD Technology

Marlin Crawler, the inventor of the 4.70:1 ratio in 1997, unveils their new Xtreme Duty 4.70:1 Low Range Gear Set, further establishing their stronghold on the Toyota transfer case market as the world-leader in strength, reliability, performance, and design.
Twelve years since it's creation, the most successful and longest lasting Toyota low range gear set of all time has been reinvented. Please take a moment to explore the technology of the most feature-rich gear set in the world...



Features
AISI/SAE 8620 Steel Alloy Material
Total-Spline Input Technology
Wider Countershaft Teeth
Oversized Countershaft Shank
Slow Speed Oil Transfer System
Mainshaft Cage Bearing Oil Pump System
Countershaft Cage Bearing Oil Pump System
Tapered Shift Hub Lock System
Increased 63/32N Bearing Oiling
New Lighter-than-stock Design

1. AISI/SAE 8620 Steel Alloy Material
Our previous gear set was cut from 8620 steel alloy, and our new Xtreme Duty gears settle for nothing less. We only use material that is recognized by the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) and the Society of Automotive Engineers (ASE). Marlin Crawler means Quality.
  • Excellent toughness, hardness, and wear properties far superior to OEM material.

2. Total-Spline Input Technology

Marlin Crawler invented the Total-Spline input back in 2000. Since then, the number of broken inputs and stripped out couplers have been drastically reduced. This same technology is featured in our new Xtreme Duty 4.70:1 Gears.
  • The only gear set in the world with Total Splines.
  • 65% Longer Splines - By far the longest lasting and the most difficult to strip.
  • 15% Larger Diameter - Can handle much higher torque loads without failure.

3. Wider Countershaft Teeth

The weakest spot of the countershaft just became a whole lot stronger. The new Xtreme Duty Gear Set features extra wide teeth to spread the torque load where it matters the most.
  • This is the weakest spot of the countershaft.
  • 42% Wider Gear - Soaks up torque like a dry sponge.

4. Oversized Countershaft Shank

Just to make sure these Xtreme Duty gears can live up to their Marlin Crawler name, we increased the diameter of the countershaft shank. Marlin Crawler Gears are truly remarkable.
  • Improved torque and shock loading.

5. Slow Speed Oil Transfer System

Our new Xtreme Duty gears are the first gears in the world to feature a specifically designed low speed oil transfer system. Think Crawling. Crawling slowly limits the amount of oil available to the mainshaft cage bearing. As the new Xtreme Duty low speed gear slowly rotates, oil is caught and lifted up where it is deposited right into our cage bearing oil pump system (described below).
  • World's first low speed gear oil transfer system.
  • Prevents oil starvation of mainshaft cage bearing and input pocket bearing while Crawling.

6. Mainshaft Cage Bearing Oil Pump System

This exclusive Marlin Crawler Oil Pump system is a revolutionary way of ensuring the mainshaft cage bearing keeps a maximum amount of gear oil under all driving conditions. Wether freeway driving or 1,372:1 Rock Crawling, it is important to keep all bearings lubricated.
  • The only gear set in the world featuring an integrated Low Speed Gear Oil Pump.
  • Increases oil to all mainshaft bearings including the 4WD idle gear cage bearing, low speed gear cage bearing, and the input pocket bearing.
  • The most efficient gear set on the planet - ideal for mixed trail/highway use.


7. Countershaft Cage Bearing Oil Pump System

This all-new integrated countershaft cage bearing oil pump is truly amazing. When the countershaft gear meshes with the low speed gear, tremendous pressure is created between each tooth, and the surrounding gear oil is squished out of each bottom landing. What we have done is created two tunnels (180° apart) for this gear oil to be transferred straight to the cage bearing where it is needed.
  • The only gear set in the world featuring an integrated Countershaft Oil Pump
  • Extreme climates demand the Xtreme Duty Gear Set.
  • Snow and Mud often prevent airflow around the transfer case - keep oil circulating when the air is not.
  • The Xtreme Duty Gear Set is by far the coolest running low range gear set on the planet.

8. Tapered Shift Hub Lock System

Toyota wasn't playing around when they built a tapered shift hub lock on each and every low range gear set ever made: It prevents accidents and can even save lives. Imagine Crawling up a very steep incline. You get higher, and higher up, 30-, 40-, 50-feet and higher. Now imagine your transfer case suddenly pops into neutral! Don't let this happen to you! Other gear manufactures overlook this absolutely critical shifter locking feature and Marlin Crawler refuses to sell dangerous gear sets!
  • It's a very serious issue that too many people take for granted. Protect your investment as well as your life.

9. Increased 63/32N Bearing Oiling

The countershaft is supported by two bearings, and we did not forget about the 63/32N ball bearing. The new Xtreme Duty Gear Set features a dished countershaft near the 63/32N bearing yielding a whopping 50-times more open space beneath the bearing. This allows for massive oil circulation around the bearing, which is important when the gears are used behind a restrictive dual case adapter in an Ultimate setup or when the oil is shifted away from the bearing on steep inclines or declines.
  • Much faster heat transfer from the bearing to the oil.
  • Much faster lubricating recovery when oil is shifted back to the front of the case.
  • The first aftermarket gear set that allows for complete through oil cycling from one side of the bearing to the other.

10. New Lighter-than-stock Design

You read that right, the new XD gear set is lighter than the stock low range gear set! Amazingly isn't it? At just 15.1 pounds, we've added technology and removed fat. Less rotational mass improves acceleration while reducing the load on the bearings. The result is a more responsive gear set with longer lasting bearings.
  • 8% weight reduction puts XD gear set lighter than stock gears - the lightest gear set on the planet!
  • More responsive to RPM change - Less resistance, improved acceleration.

Conclusion
After examining the most feature rich and technologically advanced Toyota RF1A low range gear set in the world, we are certain you will agree that the new Marlin Crawler Xtreme Duty 4.70:1 Gear Set is on a completely different level far, far above all the rest. There simply is no comparing a Marlin Crawler "Lefty" with any other.

The Marlin Crawler "Lefty" comes complete with all the hardware for installing your "Lefty" along with a Toyota single shift handle. The Twin stick is an extra cost.
The Marlin Crawler "Lefty" comes in the standard aluminum color, however, it can be had with the powder coat red at an extra cost.

The Marlin Crawler "Lefty" can be used with the six speed manual transmission, however there is an extra charge of $200.00 because of the special coupler and adapter seal used to mate them to the six speed transmission.

The Lefty will fit all Tacoma Applications, 4Runners, and FJ Cruisers.

Here is a 2006 4Runner with the 4.7 V8 that just installed a Marlin Crawler "Lefty" with twin sticks. Awesome! Click on link below to see how easy the install was.

Your looking at a geared transfer case inside a 2006 4Runner that used to have full time 4WD. We swapped the stock full time 4WD transfer case for a part time 4WD transfer case to gain lower gearing options and the ability to run 2WD low if need be and to run just 2WD when your just on the highway instead of having it always in 4WD.

This transfer case provides another option for lower gears in the transfer case for the Tacoma's. With a chain driven case you can't lower the low gears at all unless you add a crawler box or switch the transfer case.

And this little beauty allows you to switch to a geared case with manual levers instead of the electronic shifter that the newer Taco's have.



In my Tacoma I added another transfer case or really the reduction portion of another transfer case to gain lower gearing and more low gear options.
I have my stock transfer case and another reduction unit called a crawler box mounted in between the transmission and transfer case to add and compound the low gears.
