" Our process works with any version of the BW 1356 transfer case"
Unless you have done some kind of swap this wont work. Rangers use BW 1354 and 1350 cases.

I am guilty of not updating my site. We are now using just about any planetary gears and building new 6061 aluminum housings, even NP208.

Thats the f150 t case and it doesn't like to fit between the rails of the ranger.

You're right. My point is that we can use the planetary gears from a 208, if you have full size power plant in your ranger, and behind our kit you could mount a ranger friendly case, even a NP205.

STRONG BOX KITS:
At this time, we have kits for full size Ford transmissions. All Ford full size trucks and Broncos for many decades have used the same output shaft size, spline count, and bolt pattern, making the Strong Box useful for many different applications.
We are near completion of kits for full size Chevy and Ranger Based Vehicles.

Notice the words "Ford full size" the ranger and bronco II are not full size.

Website is severely outdated. I apologize. We offer kits for RBV or fullsize. We use 1350/1354 gears for RBV powe plant and 1356,208,1345 for fullsize powerplant, and we can put a NP205 behind either.

Not when the words "near completion" or not done are in front of it.

At least Jacob is here to answer questions. Looking forward to his new updated stuff.

Triple stick, yes. Gear reduction is 2.4:1 - 2.7:1, depending on which planetary gear set you are compatable with. Gear reduction is another way of saying torque multiplying so you would have 240% - 270% of the torque you have when the Strong Box is shifted into 1:1. The output shaft of the Strong Box is made of 4340 thru hardened alloy steel; more than 3x the strength of the stock shaft.

Happy to answer any questions.

Google fordracing-89 strong box . He's the only one that is running our kit that has posted about them.
Hes running our old chop and weld version. The new version is cleaner, and more compact. He has actually broken several parts wheeling it, but the Strong Box is still pulling.
There are a few other guys who are running them, but no posts about them. We have a couple of guys who are putting together some reviews to post on our web site.



Upcoming installs;
give em a couple weeks and Google
cyclegrip strong box
fordbeast98 strong box
