Say what you want about rednecks, they created a national sport called NASCAR, many of them guys like the OP with a skill set to build anything on wheels.

Best of luck to you.

I'm not familiar with an NV200. Is that like a Dana 21, providing 4wd driveshaft split without the low gear?


There is transfur case nv-200, nv 201, & nv 202. These cases are seperate from trany. And can be mounted backwords meaning 1 input. And 2 rear out puts.

Securiti...
I'm impressed.. I don't know your background but I see in your work that you are a true mechanic. There are a few left and others have been renamed with an impressive sounding "technition" handle so the garage can charge 100 bucks an hour whether or not they may just be a dumb sheet....I see old fashion creativity where off the shelf just isn't right. You be sure to post updates on your project...

I have seen vehicles done like you're planning for off-road use and it worked well. Do those divorced TC have a center diff? You are going to need an inter-axle diff to prevent binding the rears.

It is going to be a tag axle for now till I get a for sure game plan to geather for the drivetrain. Whatever transfur case i use will be left in 2 wheel drive. The remaining axle will onle be locked in when needed. Therfore I dont see a binding issue. I am open to any ideas that anyone might have. Thanks for asking.
