I like the crawling aspect of Wheeling, not the go fast kind. Where I live I have a sandstone play area (Choke Cherry Canyon or now called the Glade Recreation Area) that really lends it's self to crawling and I find the auto is easier as well. Two of my other 3 Jeep are set up to crawl. My 06 has a RubiCrawler and 4:1, my 57 has a 2.77:1 Klune-V and 4.3 Atlas. The 3rd is stock and is the family car, just 2 of us. And I am only 2hrs from the San Juan Mountains.

I built my shop the year before I retired, then work another year to get some of the things like a lift and better tooling. It is paying off. All though I still end up on the floor some times.

Now it will be a while, need to pull the motor out of the CJ6 and send it to the shop and while it's gone I am going to go through the transfer case.

After test fitting a couple of times I finally think I have it all bolted together the way I want. I haven't sealed up the Klune V yet or added oil to any thing in case it has to come a part again. So to day I worked on getting it all on the trany hoist for trying to see how it fits up in the Scrambler.

Are you getting rid of the NP435? Do you know it's low gear ratio? And, I like the tread design, what tires are those?

I traded the NP 435 for the Auto so it is gone. Yes it was the grany geared one. The tires on the jeep in the back ground of last post are Maxxis Trepador, and these are 35X12.50-15

Have the whole enchilada sitting in place and I see some issues.
1. The rear most mounting plate is off a hole or two that will have to come back a part and be adjusted.
2. The bracket for the cable shifter sits over the T-Case and there is not enough room it hits the floor.
3. With the T-Case clocked flat I do not see the front drive shaft clearing the Auto Trans pan. (I had read common issue with clocking) So clocking the T-Case back down will probably be the solution for that and may cure the cable shifter issue as well.20210104_134715.jpgresized.jpg20210104_134741.jpgresized.jpg20210104_143023.jpgresized.jpg20210104_143045.jpgresized.jpg

Clearance clocked down is doable but tight with a 4” lift or so. I went with a clocked 241C on my setup- no room for a driveshaft with a 2” lift.
