I have mentioned this before when you posted about your AWD project. You should try to find a first gen Bravada/Syclone/Typhoon and take a look under it. The "transfer case" is not very big, I do not know how it compares to late model cases, but I know it is considerably smaller than the cases of the early 80's. It might be possible to rotate the case to make it more parallel with the ground. The drive shaft is not a large diameter shaft, I would have to look under mine again to check the size, it is much smaller than the rear shaft. The front diff. is mounted to the frame so it doesn't move except for vibration. The front shaft is located very close to the engine, there is no room for the oil filter it is remotely mounted. If needed I should be able to take some pics with the digital cam and post them.
