    I came across a nicely built married ford np205 thats twin sticked with a fixed rear yoke and am planning on a doubler in the future. I want the 32 spline output shafts shafts out of it, but started thinking about using a HP dana 60 rather than a LP. What do y'all think. I'm putting it in my 72 Blazer running a BBC, th350, doubler(with which ever t-case drop I choose), 14 BFF out back, and most likely 39.5 boggers.

    I'm not going to have a pass side HP made, but use a driver side HP Dana 60.

    What do y'all think......

    I think I have a married Ford 205 and a High Pinion 60... oh yeah DO IT. You can get thick cut gears for a High pinion 60 so no carrier purchase is neccessary(I'm going to get a detroit anyway). I don't see any reason not to, unless you are a Chevy Purest. I could care less, whatever works best. I sold my LP 60 and replaced it with the HP.

    Thanks for encouraging words :D

    I think I'm going to end up doing it this way. Right now I'm just kicking around ideas, but I'm constantly looking for good deals on parts. When I do the doubler, I'm going to clock the 203 so the shift linkage is on top, not on bottom. I talked to Kyle at northwest fabworks about the doubler, and I think I'm gunna get mine from him. He's a very knowledgeable guy.

    Now the search continues............

    Thanks Guys :thumb:

    I like the HP drivers side, it think it is a good idea, mainley because by it beeing on the drivers side you cand more eaisley see what you are going to hit with it, where as with the pumkin on the drivers side, you are kinda guessing where the pumkin is gonna be
    did that make any sence?
