It's a straight bolt in replacement transfer case that maintains drivers side drop, but with lower gearing options.

I run Lefty (plus a crawler) in my FJC and it works great. If you are installing just Lefty the install is pretty easy. Your drive lines will work w/o modifying them and it will bolt directly into your truck. The shifter will require a little cutting and welding to in order to make the shifter line up with the existing hole in your floor. Jim includes all the parts you need.

No plans to run a passenger side front axle when I go SAS.

sbechtold, how long have you had it on the road and how is it surviving?

I was Jim's prototype customer and I've been running Lefty since December 06. I've got a fair amount of offroad and highway miles on it and it's surviving great! There are a few other FJC's that have installed Lefty and they are working very well also.

great customer service too

I've got a Lefty, and I love it. It kicked ass in Moab.

I replied to your post more in-depth over on Pirate - with pics.

83:1 with a single case, if i get a 2.28:1 crawler ill be at 190:1

thats 4.10 gears with a 4.0 first gear in trans, 5.0 rear case,

my best possible crawl ratio is looking at 222:1 with 4.88 gears, 4.0 first gear, 5.0 case and 2.28 reduction box.

right now i just wanna get this single case in dangit

I hear ya, I'm stuck between spending my money on a 4.7 gearset for the rear case or just put the 2.28 gears in both? I think I'll just leave the 2.28's for a crawl ratio of 109:1. That way I can buy a front locker!

:) Looks like I have everyone beat so far.

1st: 4.31
Crawler:2.28
T-case:4.7
Diffs:5.29
Final Crawl Ratio: 244:1 :D

IMO It's about perfect. I wouldn't want it any slower.

if i did 5.29s with my setup id be at a 241:1 which would be rather close, but im still IFS with my 4runner and i doubt i need that crawl ratio hehe

Even with IFS 241:1 would be nice. We wouldn't be able to tell the difference between 244:1 and 241:1... for at least a mile. lol


I'm also running 37's on a 22rte... so 5.29's are needed so I have enough power to get out of the driveway. :eek:
