Anybody ever tried using heat treated 4340 transmission planetaries in a transfer case? It seems that it'd be a simple way to get a lower ratio. Just an idea, I don't know where I'd go to ask but here. Everyone that offers aftermarket gear ratios are "hush hush" about how they do it. It seems like the hard part would be to get the sun gear and the shaft but the weak parts (the planetaries) would be easy to obtain. I don't know, just an idea I came up with while I was taking my Materials exam this morning.
