Speaking of our transmission, we’re going with this NP435 transmission bolted to the range box of a NP203 and a modified Chevy NP205 transfer case. The two transfer cases are bolted together with adapters from Offroad Designs. To support the heavy drivetrain, we built this cradle out of 1.75-inch, 0.120-wall DOM tubing. To isolate the transmission and transfer cases from the frame, the cradle uses a sandwich of CJ-5 body pucks from Daystar (PN KJ04001BK). The meat of the sandwich are brackets made out of 1/4-inch plate and angle iron. These brackets and pucks grab the tranny and transfer case at three points to distribute the load.
