Question 4.3 sm 465 what tcase ?

I have a rebuilt 4.3 and my 258 tf999 is tired and out.

If I use a sm 465 what t case will work for drivers drop with or without an adapter?

Going in our 88 YJ..

Im on a tight budget and already have the 4.3 so not looking to spend a fortune.

Why oh why would you do an engine swap and not pull the grill and fenders? It's so easy to do, and easier to do the swap.

Even with the low 1st of the 465, being that it's a 4.3 and not a V8, I'd consider a stock TJ Rubicon t-case.

I got that same answer from a local buddy I respect.. thinks the chain drive should be more than adequate with 33's or 34's...

Thanks for the suggestion.

241 hands down, I run one in my jeep with 39's. it will be much stronger than a 300, IMO I think they are the next step below a 205 or any of the "2" series case's.
The nice part about a 241 or any HD ALU case with a chain is the housing can flex under load, that's why they put them in one tons threw the 90's even behind the diesel trucks, Dodge and Chevy.

With that adapter and maybe some hole mods you will be able to adapt a 32 spline pass side ( or driver drop with a lot more hole mods ) to a 32 spline input 241.

i run a V8, SM 465 and a Drivers drop 241 on 38.5's in my K5 with no issues. i think it will be more than strong enough.
