    Experiences with Marlin Crawler Transfer Cases Gearing Changes

    Sorry if i missed it, but are you already running lockers? If so, just regear the Tcase and call it good. the underdrive puts you around 4.56. If not locked do 4.88's in the diffs and crawler gear in the case Just my opinion, and i know others will chime in on this.

    Experiences with Marlin Crawler Transfer Cases Gearing Changes

    what size tire? If you're in the case just do the both, low and high range gears and don't worry to much about the diffs. If adding lockers anyway i'd do the diffs too.

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    it's under 3 here in Denver. i saw a Shell had it for 2.89. If i had to guess Costco has it for about 2.60 since they are usually 0.20 to 0.30 cents cheaper than all the others.

    Experiences with Marlin Crawler Transfer Cases Gearing Changes

    I did the MC crawler gear. I do wish it was lower from time to time (came from mini trucks w/ dual ultimate cases) but overall i'm very happy with them. I run 5.29's in the diffs w/ 37's and an LS swap. the only thing i replaced in my Tcase was the bearing that's on the back of VC. I did a part...

    I’m missing the passenger rear over the tire and the prices that are where the 4x4labs bumper side protection is. Thing is i’m lazy and don’t want to mess w/ all the holes so they will stay till more break off

    We wheeled together in Moab. I was the gunner on "The Pickle". I'm lacking some RCV's (winter project) for the rear and that's about it. I'm ready (I think) for some Fordyce action.

    I strongly suggest you do. It was great. We are headed back next summer (2023) and we hope to do Fordyce as well. All depends on how the creek is flowing. We don’t have dates nailed down yet but I’ll let you know once we do.

    I added louvers before moving the filter and whatnot, helped some. Once I moved the filter I drove it for a few days and than put it on a trailer and went to the Rubicon. Did the entire trail w/ the hood pooped "just in case". Figured anything would help.

    I had the same issue (boiling fuel). I originally used the the stock feed and return, and had the filter/regulator on the fuel rail at the intake. I had to do a new fuel pump as "vapor locking" a FI motor isn't good on the pump. I put a new filter/regulator on the rocker about where the driver...
