    $4K VS $2K plus the little things that nickle and dime you.

    Mine was $3500 on black friday with everything you need, I think the adapter for 1st gens is a bit cheaper, but not much. If I hadn't done a new crossmember and all the other shit to get a flat belly, and the ADD delete, you could keep the the cost to just that.

    Does anyone make a drop-in replacement for the 1:2.x chain driven transfer case with a 1:4.x one that doesn’t require driveshaft, crossmember or cab floor modifications?

    I guess what I’m really asking is if there is a regearing kit available for the transfer case.

    not for toyota chain drive cases.

    Inchworm had a gear drive lefty case that you "could" do that with.

    But your 8 years out of production for one of those.

    Yeah, I would want a triple stick setup and probably a front range offroad crossmember, so that would add to the price. Depends on if you could get a TG case for 25% off like I saw earlier this year.

    Also, our speedo is in the tcase, so looks like that adds several hundred to the atlas setup vs yours. :notsure:

    Flat belly is a huge plus though.

    A tablet with Torque can tell you speed and distance without the speedo. Not sure if anything other than cruise control would be effected by it or not.

    Definitely understand the cost being a huge factor. I'll stick with the factory Ecrawlbox...

    Yeah, I've never been able to price an Atlas for much under $4k...Adapters and 4.7's are less than $1400, source a donor case for $100, build it yourself. Saving $2500 isn't chump change. I'm not counting the cost of a crossmember because you'll have to sort that out the same for either option.

    I have zero regrets building Toyota duals for my setup. 3RZ doesn't make enough power to hurt them. Once I eventually swap in a GM drivetrain, I'll build a 2sp Atlas to hang off a 6L80.

    I didn’t know they made spacers. I might go that route instead of a new drive shaft.

    Edit: Any issue with it?

    Funny, I just gave Brett one that I had been sitting on for years as it didn’t match my driveshaft.

    Too late.




    Anyways, had a bit of a smokey start - but the truck just did great on a 2k+ mile, 12 day trip across ID and MT. Just need to head back when I can actually see what I'm looking at.
