    none..they use V-Drives if i remember correctly... i believe its a boat thing originally and you can probably find one in a monster truck... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    They actually use a custom all gear drop unit that has about 24" of drop center line to center line and is machined from billet alluminum. The manuf. escapes me at the moment though...

    Nevermind, here it is:

    Which kind of t-case are you looking for? The Pro-Fab chain drive or the good old regular Rockwell's?

    If you check into the Rockwells, they are available in 2.5 and 5 ton. Also available are the air shift versions, too.

    The Pro-Fab's are more the modern day monster trucks where weight reduction is a must. I would not use this for any other than racing because these types of t-cases are a single speed only. A direct 1 to 1 ration. If you check into the Rockwells, you have the options of low and high range just like shifting regular light duty trucks. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I honestly know very little about them, thats why im trying to find out some info. A 2 speed case would be cool, what do you mean about the rock well 2.5 and 5 ton? I wouldnt really want it too heavy. Oh whats Gov Liq? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Made for a 2.5 ton truck or a 5 ton truck, most of our blazers have 1/2 ton transfer cases. Rockwell is the manufacturer.

    Government Liquidation Sale. Usually an auction to try and get rid of old equipment the military used.
