    Stephen,

    What's up with the NP203 gearing? I forget who but someone posted a link to a website with 4:1 NP203 gearing for $1,000 calling it perfect for a doubler. So where can we get just the gears???????? What did these "special" NP203's come out of or if the gears are aftermarket then where can we get just the gears to convert our NP203's?????

    Wagoneer Machine shop has them and they are (3.62) 7.2:1 when used with a doubler, they make the gears themselfs.

    I'm still a little ways out on having a firm opinion on the 3.6 gears. I'm just not sure they're necessary, except in a few certain cases, and maybe not even then. I've really had very few problems with my 4:1 gearing so I'm not sure I'd need any more, but I do have the TH700 and 5.13's to help. With 4.10's and a TH400 it might be necessary, especially with 40" + tires.
    They are definitely a graduate level upgrade, so my advise at this point is to put in a Doubler with 2:1 gears and run it. It should be pretty obvious if you really need the deeper gears after that. For most guys a grand worth of gas toward driving experience will be more fun and give a better gain in driver/vehicle ability than the deeper gears. Like I said, graduate level. I'm drooling over thought of burning $1K worth of gas wheeling! That's a lot of trips!
