Atlas II in a '13 JKU Sport
Looking for opinions, and have a question or two about Atlas transfer case upgrade. I have a '13 JKU sport, I have been searching for a rubicon 4:1 transfer case to swap since I bought this jeep new one year ago. I have found a couple but they all wanted what I consider to be a kings ransom, $1,500 or more plus shipping. I absolutely refuse to pay that for a stock rubicon transfer case. The earlier models can be found for a much more reasonable price. Since I have a 5 speed auto transmission only '12-'14 year models will work. I have priced them new from the dealer with warranty for around $1,800.
My frustrations have led me to pursue other options. I was looking at advanced adaptors website and it appears I can get a Atlas II with a 4.3:1 low range ratio with cable shifter, speedometer sensor, yokes, etc for around $2500. It is definitely more than I originally planned to spend but I would rather pay that for an Atlas than $1800 for a stock rubicon case. Honestly, I'd even consider a Atlas 4 speed if it could be done with the automatics. According to Advanced Adaptors web site the computer on the 2012 - '14 year models can only compensate for a single low range gear ratio not multiples that would be used with a 4 speed transfer case.
So my question is being that the Atlas cases are gear driven instead of chain driven is there a noticable increase in noise under normal driving conditions? Any other options I have not considered?
