    the $2800 price tag makes it an unrealistic option. You would not want to run 44's with 308's. Look into a 203/205 doubler from ORD, a much more realistic option.

    You might not want 3.08's, but you could use some really tall R&P gears to get some strength in the R&P The lower the numeric ratio the stronger the gear set is.
    $2800 is realistic to some people. I know of two guys seriously thinking about buying one each.
    As for whether it would work in a full size, don't ask Stak if they think it'll work - ask them if they'll warrenty it if it breaks in a full size.

    I'd double check the availability of getting a 3:08 R&P for 3/4 ton and 1 ton axles.

    Figured you might be running something like that if 44's are on the truck. ;)

    Our Six Gun kit is $2550 for a GM version, any rotation, 32 spline throughout, bolt's up to damn near anything.

    3:1 203 Range box mated to a 205.

    Available ratio's once installed are
    1:1
    2:1
    3:1
    or
    6:1

    Just another option in the get a DEEP low range. That's a complete turnkey cost. If you source out your own 205, then the price drops.

    Hmmm...

    WMS 3:1 np203 = $1000
    WMS DCA = $500 (if you were quick and got one on sale!)
    craigslist 203 = $100
    craigslist 205 = $150
    rebuild kits for the t-cases = $300
    triple stick kit from D&D Machine = $165

    final price = $2215... call it $2300 after you toss in some hardware, crossmembers etc.

    final ratios = 1:1, 2:1, 3:1, 6:1

    The stak case rocks, don't get me wrong I'd like to have one... but I think they are more for guys with short wheelbases who can't fit a doubler without having a driveshaft at 80 degrees. :grin: :thumb:

    ps: sigh... damn it kyle, you beat me too it. :mad: ;) :grin:

    It's my job LOL!

    It's funny, you do the math and come out just a little cheaper than my entire kit, rebuilt and ready to bolt in. Makes me feel good about our pricing ;)
