It's not really two whole transfer cases. It's a stock transfer case, with an adaptor plate bolted to it. To that is a gear box portion of another transfer case. So basically it makes the second T case a high and low gear box. What it does for you is gives you 4wd high, 4wd low, and then 4wd double low. You end up with double the gear reduction. It makes the vehicle have super low gearing for crawler or moving around/over obstacles. I can put my truck in 1st gear, and put the T cases in double low get out of my truck and walk beside it while it drives. It will do that up a moderate incline too.

Trade the Chrysler 300 for a Fiesta ST... About as different as you can get!  A blast to drive though, and saving me about $100/mo in gas

Finally got my rig back from the shop. 1992 F250 7.3 IDI Diesel 4x4. She's a bit slow compared to today's rigs, but she'll go anywhere. And sips fuel. I now average 22 around town and 24 highway.
Soon to dump the topper for one of these. http://www.softopper.com/
Then I'll dump the bed liner and get it sprayed.
Soon after, a combo auxillary fuel cell/tool box will get installed.
Then, if I'm not divorced yet, I'm getting the entire exterior sprayed with the bed liner stuff.
Stayed tuned.

After all the modifications I did, my old Ford now looks amazingly like a Dodge 3500.

I have a laundry list of new items that will be installed in the next few months. For now, I'm enjoying having AC after 9 years without it and the ability to drive over 45mph up steep grades where I live.Attached File  20180611_182455.jpg   140.16KB   0 downloadsAttached File  20180611_182354.jpg   185.26KB   0 downloadsAttached File  20180611_182455.jpg   140.16KB   0 downloadsAttached File  20180611_182354.jpg   185.26KB   0 downloads

I've found the only way I have success is to host the pictures on Imgur and then link across to the forums. Anything else I've tired keeps breaking.
