We ran the spicer 18 from a willys because of the offset rear end on the quadratracs.  The dana 20 share the same case and have a center output.  We never found a stock replacement combo that would fit so we bought the advance adapters kit and ended up have to replace the transmission output.   You might be able to make a spacer and use the original ten spine input gear found in some of the dana 20's.  You could get away with this in a long wheel base.  We needed the shorter shaft on the CJ7. Even if you found a stock GM TH400 combo you would have to swap internals since the Jeep TH400 has the round bellhousing bolt pattern. They probably make an adapter for that too.

I always buy the Napa Performance Select 84 34/78 Group size (top and side posts).  Under $100 and its 800CCA.  Plus its a 24 month free replacement warranty and 84 month prorated.  I Have them in three vehicles with the oldest one still running strong in the Willys with 8 yrs of offroad winching and starting duty.

i have a fsj th400 and a fulltime t-case in now. put a hand me down low - range box in and made a world of difference.i want to make it way simpler than having all of that hanging off my trans . now i was talking to a fellow jeeper and his brother has a cj that was quarda- trac equipped ( same engine 360ci and th400 set up). they took the borg warner out and put in a dana 20 i think.. the fsj did come with dana 20 and th400 combo i believe. i found a 73 commando  3speed  trans and t-case and was wondering if the in put would take the ten spline shaft that i have, it does  stick out of trans a good 7in. to long to just put a dana 20 on?  want to make is simple and be able to run a front locker with the rear i just put in, i was told the fulltime case dont like front and rear lockers they pop chains and is to much for them. any info would great..

At peak demand, a winch can draw 500-600 amps. 

500-600 amps was a bit high.  I just checked the specs on mine, which is a Warn 9.5 XP.  It's 480 amps at the max line pull.  Warn recomments a minimum of a 650 CCA battery.

For starters, you absolutely need a deep cycle battery.  Winching will kill a regular battery pretty damn quick.  You can go with an optima, or just buy a cheapo marine battery at Walmart like i did.  Unless you plan on a lot of roll overs, I don't really think the optima offers much more than the additional safety of being a sealed battery.  If you are worried that your battery wont keep pace with the winch, pat is correct about the dual battery setup (both deep cycle).  At peak demand, a winch can draw 500-600 amps.  You are banking on the reserve in the battery top get you through short bursts of winching, not the alternator output.  you would probably need about 4 high capacity alternators to provide enough juice to meet the peak demand of the winch.

i want to spray the bed of my truck and was thinking of cleaning up my rockers giving the truck a nice two tone paint job.  durabak has a lot of color options so but i would like to know if it will really old up even just to daily driving it.  i used herculiner once and it looked good for about 6 months and then went down hill fast.  just thought i would see if any one local has used it and how well it has held up, any discoloration, chipping or peeling, things like that.  thanks.

The biggest thing with winches is the battery adding another alt isn:t really going to help as much as using a dual purpose battery. Another problem is your stock alt output at idle to around 1400rpm isn't all that great so adding two and not increasing rpm will net you nothing but increased windage. I would buy another battery and isolate it for winch use or buy a Optima blue with the light grey case and not worry about it.

i wanta add a winch in the future what if i add another stock alt. to the system to keep up with the winch? i have a 950ca batt. that would be plenty for regular winch use with a 10k lb pull right ?
