    I spoke with one of the Tech's at, heck can't remember the company but This is what I told him.

    I wanted to run a 454 with rockwells or dana 60's which ever I found first but I didn't want to have to worry about tearing things up. What does he thing would be a good bullet proof setup.

    He answered with, A TH400 the Klune and a NP205 even with the 454 I would barly start to make this thing work. He said he could gear it anyway I wanted and they would help me choose the best way for me to go.

    I was going to order the TH400, Klune and NP205 from him together.

    Just FYI hehe

    on their website you can see all the vendors. A couple of places I priced were aroun $1700 but that was a year ago. I will eventually get one because you can get any splines in and out. It work as an adapter as well as the reduction box. I was looking at running a 700R4/ klune-v/ 10 spline 205. It's lighter then a 203/205 doubler, and smaller, with different ratios.


    I sound like I'm dating the owner. :haha: Just wish I had the money right now.

    I have seen one in a burb on 1 ton's and 37's that was wheeled pretty hard and it seemed to work very well. It is a good option for strength and reliability.
