the OTT Kicker 3 is $750 (you provide the cores), thats about half the cost of the other reduction units and about the same price (?) as the GRS II gears alone. I am still installing it so I dont know how it will be. Its  really a well built unit, they do some quality work. I drove my buddies tracker with a simular set-up (but divorced), he installed a sami case behind his tracker case. The way it crawls and climbs with the automatic is amazing, I can tell you that you will not regret spending the money for it. Mrfuelish made a good point I didnt consider, you will save some money on the install kit by using a tracker transmission.

I havent forgotten about the pictures, still working on it. How do you post them anyways?

I would send the harness to trail tough they are on special for around 200.00 they used to be 500.00, the only other on the web that I know that does them is about 250.00, the whole kit is like 329.00 with the adapter plate and it is only like a six or seven wire hook up and fifty buck's for the speedo sensor and 79.00 for the fuel pump. if you run the kick trans and x-fer case the rear output will be in the middle of your samurai when your rear end is off set, so you would have to put in a toyota mini truck rear end or a tracker rear end. if you go the ott route that would still use your samurai x-fer case so it would be cheaper than changing every thing out and you do not need the adapter plate or smaller samurai clutch and flywheel and not have to buy the samurai x-fer case gears and have more gear ratio options and better for going to lower ring and pinion gears and still drive it on the street at highway speeds. does that help?

you still have to do a lot of cutting and splicing of the harness and pull the speed sensor out of the trcker and put it in your samurai speedo, the light sockets are all diffrent and changing out the whole harness would be a pita. what trans do you have? 2wd or 4wd? if you use 4wd r u going to put a tracker axel in the rear? and zooky how much was the ott x-fer case conversion??? they never e-mailed me back! hows it work? sorry for the highjack.

I widened the tunnel with the stock scissor jack. I just put it where it needed to be widened and cranked away. I over did it in some places, if I took my time it would have come out better. It dosent look that bad though, I dont think anyone even noticed

You can get it in there without a body lift or cutting, if you dont mind an ugly transmission tunnel. The sami radiator works fine, they all have the same capacity. The Tracker P/S is easy (especally if it comes with the donor) and works good, dont let anyone tell you different
