    I was wondering: what are the gear ratios of a non-USA transfer case as illustrated in the technical links page (34mm idler shaft, not a split case)? Is this a better transfer case than USA models? I have one and am considering rebuilding it as a replacement. Any kits out there? Thank you.

    Thanks, Jonathan. I did some research over the weekend and I found out something that might be helpful to others out there. This transfer case was installed by the original owner as a replacement in the early 1980's and it IS a USA distributed factory replacement unit. It has the 34mm idler shaft in a one piece case and it is beefier than the stock case that came with the vehicle. I plan on using this one instead of the stock case I pulled from a wreck. Go figure.
