    Ok... I am Starting on a project with a Box Truck Diesel small inline six and Auto Tranny

    Since i already have it.

    I want to Run a Divorced Case off the back of it.
    but a 205 isnt Low enough.
    and i dont want to run divorced case into a divorced case if i can keep from adding the extra length.

    You can use a divorced 203 range box, normal doubler adapter, and normal 205.

    If you're not short on money, Klune V makes one.
    It'll run you around 2K.

    Well I am not spending 2K just yet, but when you get the klune or a doubler you have choices of 4 gear ratios not 2: one deep and one stock.
    You get Hi, HI, Low LOW hi Low and LOW hi with the low in each being different you get 4 gear ratios.
    :grin:

    True. But. i hardly ever take my CJ out of LOW as it is.
    but its a NV4500 and D300 and rockwells. = 100-to-1

    with rockwells again (99% chance) and this auto trans 1st Gear being 3.05 and Converter making it 6ish
    - Atlas 3.8 it would be. 150-to-1 about.
    - just a 205 would be 75-to-1
    - Double Case - Back up to 140-to-1

    Don't you need to put the Klune between tranny and t-case ?
    and that woudnt work with a 2wd trans right ?

    Correct, the Klune would go between the tranny and Tcase.

    You need what the other guy mentioned. A divorced NP203 range box with any NP205 mated to it. The divorced 203 could go on a jack shaft off the 2wd auto. You better have 115+ "s of wheelbase though

    I have 107"s with a manual (sm420) custom 3" adaptor, NP203 range box, Jeds doubler, NP205 in my jeep and it leaves a 21" driveshaft. Add the auto wich has to be a foot longer than a 420 (11"s) and the jack shaft and you got no driveshaft left if you are under 105"s. You mentioned a CJ, that will not work without a real long wheelbase extension.

    My CJ in Current Config. is 114" wb.

    And with Rockwells a 21" Driveshaft is Pleanty.
    Mine is currently about 18" with Tons of Travel left.

    But i am going to building Tube Buggy. So i can make it whatever i want.

    I am planning on the 110"-115" though.
    with the Motor WAY forward in the Chassis and the Radiator in the Rear.





    So does anyone have the 203 RB or the 205 ? :D

    Yah, I looked at your pics in your sig after I posted. Looks like you know about wheelbase stretching. Hard to tell a dreamer from someone who knows what there talking about on these forums.

    Well if you go on the Klune V website and check, they have a setup for a divorced case.
    It will work with a 2wd tranny, it bolts up to a divorced Tcase and has a cover and a yoke on the front.
    just a couple hundred more.
    Klune V is about $1750 plus the adapter to make it divorced is total of about $2000.
    :D
    Anyways, good luck finding a divorced 203, I know they are out there, I was supposed to get one but still didn't get any response back from the guy in a few months.
