Sorry to get in on this so late, but did you ever consider a Dana 20 t-case behind your c-4? They came factory in early broncos behind the c-4. You would just need the adapter(stock) and the t-case. I picked my 20 up for 200.00 here in CO and there are tons of after market parts available. I'm glad your sticking with the C-4. I have a C-6 in mine, and even though there wasn't many problems on the install and its bulletproof, its a HP pig. Good luck.....

Those plates look suspiciuslly like my stock 4.0 mounts and the custom plates 1/2" aluminum ones I made for my 5.0 :)

well after the long two months of waiting i get the adapter i have been waiting for. i just have to have the transmission sent out for the new shaft to be installed, i was going to do it but my dad ad a few buddies said it would be best if i had some one else tackle that. has any one ever done it and if so how hard was it to put the new transmission shaft in? i had the tail housing off and stuff and it appears that a few clips are keeping the shaft from coming out, but im not sure! any help?
