Chain drive T-cases can take being run on asphalt. Not saying I'd do it on a regular basis. Older gear driven units will grenade on you.

If you need four-wheel drive, it can be added to any F-350 Super Duty. A manual transfer case with manual locking hubs is standard on the XL and XLT models, while the Lariat and King Ranch get an electronic shift-on-the-fly system. Skid plates are optional on the XLT and Lariat, and standard on the King Ranch.

I blew the side off an NP 229 which is chain drive. Some are built to be full time four wheel drive, some are not.

I blew out the pinion bearings in my Scout one day, so I pulled the rear driveshaft, locked in one hub, and drove around in front wheel drive while I waited for new parts. (Gear drive case)

None of them likes being run on asphalt. I did that on the old CJ back in high school and it eventually took out the front diff, which then mangled the front drive shaft and axles into oblivion in about half a second, at speed on ice at night. Not a lot of fun explaining that one to Dad.

What the hell do those things do at speed?
Wouldn't they whip the crap out of you and/or your passenger.

You will notice these whips are usually found on Harleys. Running at speed is not a concern.


I know, I know, it's not Friday, yet. Just getting a jump on it.

Hmmmmm.. judging by where that thing is attached it *might* be Harley's version of a Rekluse autoclutch... if it gets caught under the rear saddle bag or crash bar then it pulls the clutch in to slow you down.

They are called whips, and if you run one it is "cool" (I guess) but I have never before seen two... makes me think of the little shiny pink ribbon on a little girls handlebars.

It was the project that day at day camp. Two of them, so two whips.

I've heard they think they are special, just didn't realize they were special.

I'm thinking the whips are how cruiser riders brag about their cornering prowess. Its like sport bike riders who grind down the foot pegs or the outside of the soles of the boots. Cruiser riders need something like that but don't want to actually lean enough to scrape chrome. This way too, if they are too slow, they can just get a longer whip so they still have something to brag about.
