      Anyone done it yet? thats my plan.advanced adapters has a kit.i just happen to and early version of the Dana 20(better gearing on the t-shift style) also easy to twin stick. Other option is a np205...have one of those too. Was thinking that would be cool to do a doubler with an np203... Yup got that too...:D probably go Dana 20 due to size vs.strength and weight.

      Make sure you get a HD output on the Dana 20 the stock ones break easy

      I'm not too worried about it. I've owned early broncos since the 90's . Owned over 100. Never broke a Dana 20.probably only know 2-3 that did break.

      I would've thought more guys would've gone this route? compact,tough as nails,cheap,easy to find transfer case that seems relatively easy to install with the proper adapter.i know the early bronco guys have been doing the motor and trans swaps into broncos for years. I'll have to do a write up on what I figure out when I get to that point.

      I researched it, but I think they are big compared to a 1354- as far as fitting between the frame rails- and the low range ratio isn't all that good?

      They are one of the smallest cases you can put behind the 4r70w. Buy a ZF adapter and 1/2" spacer from AA. Don't forget the special seal, then it's a bolt on deal so you won't even have to touch the crossmember.
