    This was one of the most fun vids we have done I really had no idea how or where this was going! We discussed the options and the fact that an s10 and a typhoon/Syclone are large parts of my fathers/Fasterproms history and led us to modernizing the platform. We decided that it had to be AWD, Manual, V8, Twin turbo, just saying it out loud sounds kinda sexy!
    If you guys watch till the end it’s all laid out and revealed. Every once in awhile we mix it up and really cut loose!
    Thank you guys for the comments please don’t forget to like, share and subscribe!

      There is no way this is a real person. He has to be acting.

      Olson Family the Aluminium housing is the weak link. The pinion heat tries to walk up the ring gear and splits the case. It also has non hardened gears in it. That’s for the Bravada and 4x4 diff. The 4x4 manual trans diff is cast iron and has hardened gears, much stronger. The next weak link is the axle/hub locking mechanism. This is only an issue with the 4x4 units. It’s splined and likes to strip. For a bomb proof diff, cast iron carrier with Bravada stub shafts. All the diff housings were speaking of have the exact same part number and are interchangeable. So in that regard, there is no cutting involved to swap one for the other. The biggest issue is converting a 2wd frame to a 4wd/AWD frame, lowering it (total cv joint angle can’t be any less that 10 degrees), and having clearance for the oil pan.

      +Michael Miner looks like you have also been researching. I've gotten most of my info from in the awd section. It explains the benefits of using the Bravada unit (even some 1996s are non-electronic units). They have some guys running 10s without breaking the front diff but yes between all the parts it's still the weak link. If you want a bolt in setup with only minor cutting for clearance it seems to be the way to go.

    Well that’s just great. Now my Real Doll is all traumatized. Had to assure her that her head will remain firmly attached to her body.

                          Astro or Safari awd, not sure how solid on power they are, but I assume they are related a syclone or typhoon.

                                                Probably the best thing to get the drive train out of is a blazer ss. There are some folks using those to make awd camaros and stuff

It will be sturdy and you will not have to buy new leaf springs. I did this on my ford ranger and i have a 347 stroker Windsor in it pushing 485whp so it will handle power.

                                                                                        If I was going to build it, I would source a front drive assembly off a late 90's or early 00 from a similar platform. Depending on which side drop the front drive assembly is, will dictate what type of t-case you would do. Get the rear axle as well so you already have matching gear ratios. I feel drivetrain from a late model 1500 would just add more weight. I know a mid to late 90's jeep grand Cherokee came with a AWD system but you don't need 4low. Look into a late 70s BorgWarner 1339 tcase found in jeep Cherokees. You want the unit without the 4 low system. Chain is HUGE!! they came bolted up to a TH400 transmission from the factory. The only thing about these units is, both the front and rear output are offset to the passenger side. So this may limit your options on the type of front drive system you want to use. So if you use a center drop rear axle, you would have to run a CV shaft to eliminate vibrations. Love where this may go!
