Hey guys. I know many of you have been really helpful before and may know I am looking for better gear ratio solution.
Three years ago I was pointed toward an overdrive transfer case in which the drive shaft would have to be shortened. I was told about $2000 for the job.
Of course at the time I wasn't ready to spend 2k on a transfer case and then have a tranny randomly go out on me that I could possibly have replaced with a 5 or 6 spd. Anyway. My AT545 is in great shape, shifts like a cadillac(or any other model you thinks shifts great
I just received some info that I have yet to follow up on directly, but I heard that I could have the drive shaft shortened and get the gear box and install it for less than I would spend on getting gears changed. The information comes from an good friend who is a retired railroad engineer and former professional sprint car driver. he knows his stuff but I haven't talked to him personally about this yet.
Anyway My tranny is good. Tools for the installation are no problem. I think it would be ideal because I have low end gears and an overdrive on open highway. I guess I am just asking for info and opinions from anyone who has done it or checked into it themselves etc.. Is having a bus size drive shaft shortened expensive? Do you have any idea who makes these units and where to look for them?
