    I know that divorced t-cases are far from popular at CK5, but I am still proud of my accomplishment. The case is mounted so that the intermediate shaft runs at zero degrees and is clocked to about the factory posistion. The front and rear shafts are identical, making them interchangable. I had all three driveshafts made new (and balanced) and they only cost $480 including six spicer u-joints. The truck has 6" suspension lift. The pic is kinda' dark underneath...

    Here are links to some more pics. It is done only enough to drive around the yard, I still have to finish a few things and put in the shifter.


    Left mount, still needs another bolt

    Right mount, also still needs some work

    Re: Divorced!

    I have never seen a divorced tranny/transfer case installed on a truck, but is it suposed to hang down so low?

    His 3" body lift makes more of it visable. if you see any of the early to late 70's fords they hang down like that.

    My brother is doing a divorced dodge 205 in his blazer, but I'm trying to get him to clock it flat.

    Re: Divorced!

    I wish mine could have been more flat, but to keep the intermediate shaft at zero degrees and follow the downhill slope on the engine/transmission it's about as good as I could get.

    Re: Divorced!

    I know someone that had one on a ford f350.. was weird when I saw it for the first time back in 1994.... but hey it works...

    although I think you only need that in serious driveshaft angles.....

    my opinion is that now you have too much stuff hanging too low to get hit on rocks, stumps, trees, etc.... but if ya like it ya like it...

    Looking good. You beat me to it /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I'm using a divorced Dodge NP205 too. Except the SM465 will have a married BW4401 from a 95 K3500 on it

    Not sure if that works for most trucks... I have a generous 150" wheelbase to play with. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
