    Was curious if anyone was running an Atlas II transfer case? And if you where would you recommend or not and why? Thanks

    DBlazer has one and is very happy with it. I'm going to run one in my Blazer. You definitely want to get the 32 spline upgrade for a fullsize.

    It's on my Christmas list! Moose is planning to. As long as you have less than 900 horsepower. The coolest thing is it bolts on with no mods except maybe driveshaft addjustment.

    If you knew the truth, you too would be against marijuana prohibition!

    I have one in my '87 K5 and love it. The twin stick is great, and helps with the front locker on rocks. It is quite pricey with the case, 32 spline upgrade, and adapters (if needed). I love the low range capabilities and the overall length, although that really does not matter in a fullsize. I also like the ORD doubler for the fact that one has the choice of two low range ratios, and can be converted to twin stick also, like any other NP 205. If you could find the parts needed to make the Doubler easy enough (look on the for-sale board) it might be worth it to go with the Doubler. I don't think that strength is an issue with either set-up. It mainly comes down to personal opinion. Just my $.02.

    Thanks for the replys everyone. Just starting to look into different options for lower gearing.

    You know what would be cool?

    ORD designing an adaptor to mate the Atlas II t-case behind the ORD Doubler.
    Use the Atlas in place of the 205 t-case.

    Let's see....that would give you about almost 6.1 ratio on the low ranges!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Anybody wanna bug Watson to making some gizmo to mate the Atlas to the Doubler? [​IMG]




    I'm not picking my nose...I'm just pointing at my brain!! [​IMG]

    Couldn't that be done by ordering the Atlas with a 32 spline input, like one to replace the 205?

    Actually, you could get a 8.3:1 low.
