Looking for opinions. Anybody using these? For $1529
(B.C. Broncos), plus shipping, plus labor/time to
instal--seems like one would just "buck up" for a new
atlas.

If I sold my d20 and put it toward a new atlas,
wouldn't I be in the ballpark?

You won't get much for your D20 (saw two w/3spd trannys for $150 at the swap
meet last weekend). Instillation is simple, I did mine myself. You don't
need to buy new drive shafts (the atlas mounts further back, saves about
$600).

Some people think the D20 output shaft is weak. Observations seem to point
to vehicles that have been flat towed for excessive distance with the
transfer case in neutral. This causes the output shaft to overheat and
create a weak spot near the bearing. So, most people will not experience a
problem. IF it does break, Wild Horses offers a HD replacement.

Oh, by the way I am very happy with the Rock Eater gear set. Both Chuck (BC
Broncos) and Jack O'Brien were a great help.

This brings a question to mind...
If I were to put JP gears in the Cold Duck case, wouldn't I only be using
half of the JP gearset ? Would the price be the same?

You would be using the whole gear set, but you would want two gear sets, one
in the cold duck and one in the D20. Who wants to do the math for that
crawl... uh, creep ratio.

Don't forget the 203 behind the NP 435!

Think about how much fun you can have playing with it today, and what the
resale value will be tomorrow. Cause nothing is permanent on my vehicle!

With a gear ratio like that you could probably hook up a 2 stroke
motorcycle engine and do the rubicon. ( water cooled of course)

You'll have to stretch the wheel base pretty darn far!

What about dual Atlas', like a duck, but stronger...would that be a frozen Mallard, or a Chilled Goose.....anyway back to serious....

I have been looking at the heep quadratrack reduction unit, which is a planetary that bolts onto the back of the quadratrac case. They are plentiful and cheap. Trying to devise a way to mate it to bronco needs. Once I get past the spline problem, the mounting is abreeze as the unit is self contained in its own case with a simple circular bolt pattern. It should hold up fine as it was mostly, if not always, used in V8 applications.

Just dreamin outloud.....

If you go with a 203 case, you'll have to get past the frame problems. The
203 won't fit between the frame.

If you want to install those gears in a cold duck you need to make sure have
a "super duck". These cases are larger to accommodate the larger gear set of
O brian's. The regular cases are not large enough.

I'm sooo confused . . . I thought a cold duck WAS a couple of D20s, and the
OBrian gears fit D20s so why don't they fit in a cold duck?

The 2cnd Dana 20 is cut in half and flipped upside down. Then attached to
the other case. If you tell them when you buy the case they can cut it a
little larger to accomodate the larger gears later. I'ts cut in half because
it would hit the frame rail on the passenger side. I think it's due to the
front driveshaft. I don't know all the details, I just know that there is a
difference between a cold duck case and a super duck case.

I believe it was a 203 range box being referred to...not the whole case, as
everything but the range box is junk...

they cut off the front output of the dana 20 to make a cold duck. They do
this close to the intermediate shaft gear, but the 4.86 one is larger,
necessitating more room left where they cut the case off.
