transfer case

hello,
I am starting the build of my 97 ranger, it has a 4.0L and a 5 speed manual tranny, (I think its a mazda M5OD-R1) Does any one know if there are any companys out there making a low gear kit like a 4 to 1 kit for my t-case, or a dual t case set up like they do in the toyotas? and if not, is there such a thing as an adapter plate to go to a different t-case such as a fliped dana 300? Im new to the ranger so any advise helps, Thanks!!

There are crawlboxes both homemade and to be bought. No one makes a low gear kit for the BW1354 or '1350 as far as I know.

Some guys modify an old manual case to act as a crawlbox and stack them. CrazzyEarl on this board is doing that very thing with his late 80's Ranger.

Advance Adapters makes all kinds of crap for mating things up if you've got the dough.

Crawlbox = a gear reduction unit mounted between trans and tcase?? Kinda like an overdrive unit, but changing the ratio the other way????

Yes, that's what it is. I know somebody was making them on Pirate 4x4 or Offroad Rangers or somewhere. Don't remember where. Search the internet for crawl box or crawlbox and 1350 or 1354. You could try throwing Ranger or Explorer in there too and see what happens.
