Just a rough estimate but here it goes...
Front axle/ new gears/ brakes=$1200
t-case from salvage yard=$200
steering components=$200
springs and perchs=$200
driveshafts= I dunno, ask dirty
Shifter and linkage= fill in blank
Anything I forgot?

Thanks for the vote of confidence Chris. I've been thinking of those guys at the Christman Mud Bog, especially this thing;

Did you guys get a chance to see this thing up close? It looks like he took a stock truck and just put a mud bogging chassis underneath. i know that is oversimplified, but basically it really is that simple. You know, disconnected it at the transfer case and took the stock drivetrain out and put in the hi-rise stuff.

When it's not mine it's really simple. But I seem to overcomplicate things and overthink it when it comes to mine.

There is more to it than the base parts. DOM tubing, Johnny joints, steel for the mounts, all that. I get that. But that has got to be stronger, and definitely more durable than the stock Titan stuff. And surely easier to find. Look at the previous ^ post. Front end solved.

And you know there is nothing wrong with doing it that way. It took me 5 months to gather all the parts, but when I did my first S-10 V-8 conversion, it only took me 2 weeks from the time I took the hood off till I gave the ex the keys and had her get me a refill on my Super Big Gulp. So not a bad way to do it. I'm doing it in my head right now for the V-6 conversion in the MudRaider. there are like 5-7 done in the world that I know of. So if you can think it Chuck, it can be done. definitely glad to make it so.

I'm thinking correctly on this aren't I? The vehicle has no clue what it is riding on. All we have to do is get the power from the engine to the transmission to the transfer case. I'm thinking if he gets rid of the Nissan transfer case that will get rid of a lot of complicated electrical components. Especially making the transfer case manual. It would really help if you could get rid of the electrical transmission, but there are considerations for it mounting to the engine.

Nissan engine + Nissan 4WD transmission + New Process transfer case + whatever axlesThat would allow all kinds of gearing in the axles, upgrading gears in the TC. 35's+ would be no problem.

yea, mostly. although stuff like ABS and traction control will no longer work and will throw a dash light (if applicable). other wise it doesnt matter what axles go under it.


now as for the transfer case, he could check out something like advance adapters and see if they make something to adapt the nissan transmission to the NP or Dana transfercases

Your right I would be throwing codes left and righ, abs lights, vehicle dynamic control lights, slip lights.
Tpms lights. That's why I would like to get a jeek axles with a dana t case with electronic shifting into 4wd which allow me to still have abs and all that working and not throwing lights and codes. But I would either need a titan pathy or xterra off road/pro 4x edition rear axle to have a e locker

Leave the light off that spot so it doesn't show. ABS? How did we ever survive without it? Rolling Eyes Are you really going to be able to gear it the way you want with Nissan parts in there? You have to decide if you are going to remain brand loyal and empty-walleted, or build it up super strong with the performance like you want, and just a bit less empty-walleted. Yeah, I made that word up - empty-walleted. Shocked

Yep, that would definitely be the fastest way to get a 4 wheeler. Sell that thing, have all kinds of cash, find a decent Cherokee (You need one of those because of children, right?) for a decent price, use the rest for better parts, and take Momma to Ruth Chris and all will be right with the world.
