    I currently have a SMC465 trans and a NP205 T-case. I would like to get a better drive shaft angle. With my 14" leafs my front driveshaft binds and clanks.... I was told that if I go with a Divorced T-case that I could lower the case to get a better angle. I understand all the theory...
    What would I need.
    A divorced t-case
    shorty drive shaft
    cross member for t-case
    I was told a 2wd transmission. What is a good manual 2wd trans. I would suspect the 3spd w/creeper.. but is there a better one?
    Also are the divorced t-cases just a NP205 divorced?
    just thinkin if I should go this route or have my front rear knuckles ground off and the rear pitched. Even at that you can only pitch so much....

    im helping my housemate do a divoreced t-case right now. We used a sm465 2WD version and found a rockwell 221 t-case from a 60's chevy that was set up divorced already. You can find a divorced t-case in older dodges that will work too. Ill let you know what else we find trouble sure there wll be something :)
