What t-case/adapter works best for me

I have a 67 Ford Bronco w/ a 9' rear end w/ 4:88 gears, but a all Chevy chassis. It has a 2001 5.3L w/ a 2001 4L60E tranny backing it. Since I have a driverside drop what would be the best bang for the buck for a transfer case/adapter? Any suggestions, appreciated.

Any particular space or length requirements? Was that originally a 4x4 transmission? Why not find something out of a 99-up Silverado or Sierra? My '00 Silverado has a manual shift transfer case, no electric shift actuator to worry about. I believe it's a NVG 261HD, though you probably don't need the HD version. If you need a special adapter then you might want to check out Advance Adapters.

Thanks for the advice. I've spoken to Advance Adaptors and Novak and they give me some pretty pricey options but one of them is a Jeep (driver drop) NP231 w/adapter and all the fixings. THanks again.

NP 241 should bolt up to the 4l60E if it is a 4x4 unit. I believe you will need one with the 28 spline input. The np246 also has a dr side drop but it has the electronic shift and the motor to deal with.

Thanks again for the advice. Would a Chevy driver drop t-case work w/ a adapter and a slip yoke eliminator. Or is it more adviseable to go with Jeep NP234/241 w/ adaptor and slip yoke eliminator? And would it be wise to try to find the set up at a respectable salvage yard or just splurge and get a rebuilt setup. And who would you recommend to go through?

You don;t say if the trans you have is a 4x4 unit but I am guessing when I say that if you are using the chassis it is a 4x4 one? The computer to run the engine/trans is still being used?

I think I would look for a trans/transfer case unit from a 4x4 if your trans isn't the 4x4. Preferably the mentioned np241 that is stick shifted. Then you know the t-case bolts to the trans. To me re-sizing drive shafts is easier than buying an adapter for the trans/t-case.

Yes; my project is a 4X4. I'll probably take your advice on the NP241 of a yr GMC/Chevy that is compatible with my 4L60E set up. I'm assuming that it'll be a lft side drop (Driver) and no adapter is necessary just a slip yoke eliminator, right?

Not sure of the slip yoke you are eliminating. The front drive shaft on the unit in my truck (K2500 '99 'Burb) slides into the t-case with a boot over that end. Again, I am guessing that yours will have a live axle on the front(mine is IFS) so may need some type of slip joint to allow for the axle to move up and down.

The np241 is a stick shifted driver drop chain driven case. For serious off roading, muddin', rock crawlin' it might not be up for it. For light trail ridin', and general cruisin', it should be fine though you need to address the pump rub issue before it becomes a problem.

Thanks again for the advise. I will primarily be on street with some off roading but no rock crawling or serious mudding. I'll look into your recommendations. Thanks.

I would look for a setup like that local to you.

Will do! I've found that buying a used one, getting it rebuilt and finding an adapter is almost as expensive as buying the setup through NOVAK. I'm still going to see if I can save a buck and get it done locally. Thanks for the advise.
