Post kinda OT... gear-driven vs. chain-driven transfer cases?

ok i know NOTHING about this, hehe can anyone please tell me what the underlying differences are? are chain-driven cases typically single speed or just designed for heavy-duty off-road apps? pardon my ignorance hehe

chain driven are like on a bicycle. there are different gears in the tranny, but the drivbeshaft is a chain... where as shaft-driven is like a car (or some motorcycles). there really is no difference except a shaft is stronger and heavier. chain can break easier, i think, too

Have a Nice Day?

WTF? Jgard18, I don't know what you've been smoking, but even a truck with a chain driven transfer case has a driveshaft, 2 of them in fact. A gear transfer case uses a series of gears inside the case to tranfer the power to the front shaft, while a chain tranfer case uses a large, almost tread like, chain to transfer the power.
