    Exactly what the heading says. I have no idea what the difference is between the two and I would like to learn /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Divorced is where the tcase is not directly mounted to the trans. It is connected via drive shaft.

    Here is a pic of one. Yes, I know, it's a Ford /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Ok that's pretty simple now. What would be the benefits of doing this? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    longer front drive shaft, they are practical for trucks. In a blazer it would make both shafts too short, so you'd need a high-angle front & rear with any amount of lift.

    The main advantage (to me anyway)is it lets you put ANY tranny on Gods green earth in front of it,with the appropriate driveshaft--no having to use a hard to get 4wd "only" tranny that bolts directly to the T-case with an adaptor.

    Hmmm--I have a TH400 out of a monte carlo with the short tail,and I have a K20 with no reverse in its th350--wonder how hard it would be to move my NP205 back and hook up the TH400 to it-- /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif Anyone done one like that???? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif
