    You mean a divorced transfer case. Just means the transfer case isn't directly bolted to the tranny. It is instead seperate and connected by a driveshaft.

    There are also divorced transmissions where the motor and the tranny are at different ends of the vehicle connected by the driveshaft, like the porsche 924 but uncommon in trucks outside of custom creations.

    C5 Vett has a Divorced Tranny. GM also built a couple cars in the early 60's that the tranny was in the rear so they could have a lower floor. I think it was a Pontiac. Had independent rear suspension also. I think that was the car that had the "rubber band" drive shaft. When the car was just sitting the drive shaft drooped down but once under torque it pulled back in line.
