    OK, getting ready for the conversion this fall to 1 ton and want to find a kit for what I have, do they make one and how much 4:1 or something close, how difficult are they to install. of course the doubler is an option but would rather convert my 203.....always up for change though /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    It is a 1,000 plus your front half as a core. They have to machine the case to make it fit. I believe the company is Wagoneer Machine or something like that.

    its only 3.6, but for a grand im not sure its worth it, Id go with a double better gear selection and it might be cheaper but i dont know much about the cost for the doubler.

    I heard that they have switched to 3.1:1 due to clearance issues with Ford cases. With a Doubler, you would have 2 choices for low. The cost for a Doubler with driveshaft mods will probably run more than the Wagoner conversion. But, you would have more options, including 2 wheel low.
