    Have a question/idea, do you think in the future there could be a doubler for a LoMax 205 and a 203? Just thought there could be a market for that low of an gear ratio(mostly rock crawlers). Thanks

    The LoMax is just a NP205 with a lower gear set but a new case with the same dimensions as a regular 205 as far as tranny and bolt up goes so a regular doubler will bolt right up to it.

    Yup, we have a pretty good number of those systems out, where they really seem to shine is when you want "highway" gears in the diffs with big tires and a non overdrive trans. For big trucks, the 40-50:1 that the Doubler will give you is sometimes not enough for big rocks so the Doubler/Lomax combo takes you to 60-75:1 which works really well.
    We can build the Lomax case complete or sell you the kit to put in your 205. It's nice to do it at the same time as the Doubler since you have to replace the input gear and machine a 205 case in most situations anyway. The Lomax comes with the short 32 spl input and the right case already so it saves most guys about $250 to do the Lomax instead of the stock 205.
