If your Jeep is a 72, it won't work.
The Warn/Saturn overdrive fits the model 18 transfer case, used from 41-71.

That's not going to do any good. The OP is looking for lower RPMs at a higher speed.

The Dana 20 you have can be modified with a combination of Dana 18 gears and a Bronco Dana 20 sliding gear to have 2.46 low range vs. the 2.03 you have. Teraflex also has a 3.15:1 kit that can be swapped in.

There is no bolt in though unless you find another Dana 20 that's already been modified.

Ok and is there a certain way I can tell what kind of lift I'd need to bring the from of my jeep back to spring under it is spring over rigt now and the leaf springs are flat an I'd like to spring under again so it handles better like my buddy's 56 willys he just got

Rather than guess what springs you need based on the spring over it has (which is way overkill for 33" tires), you can get by with 2.5" leaf springs with a 1" body lift to clear 33s. You could also use 4" springs and skip the body lift.

Well then you wouldn't need the 1" body lift now would you?

Why do you have so much lift for just 33" tires? I'll bet it looks pretty goofy with what amounts to probably 10" or more of total lift combined.
