    I daily drive my k5 and im wanting to do something about the transfer case. I have 203 behind a 700 (2 inch block between them) with 6 inch springs up front with DIY4X shackle flips and zero rates in the rear. Since i already have the 203, it makes sense to do the doubler, but I am worried about the rear drive shaft being to steep. Shes already at a pretty steep angle and I am guessing a doubler is going to push it way further back? an atlas would be nice but I havent seen any succes stories yet. anyone running a 700/doubler that can give me feedback would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    my rear driveline is 28" long and the HAD cv style shaft has plenty of flex left in it.

    Jesse at HAD told me that my driveshaft would be the same length going from a 203 to a 203/205 doubler setup. I sure hope so, they aint cheap!

    You have to remember that when you go double you are only using the front 1/3 of the 203. Add that to the adapter and 205 lengths and you are pretty close to the length you have right now.

    If you go to ORDs doubler page they have some comparison lengths to help you figure things out.
