    Yep, NWF (thats North West Fab for you rookies :D ) has there new version of the Klune V out called the black box. It would give you a better lowrange & more options for gears then a doubler. It should be pretty strong too. As for the strength of a Klune there is a guy in the LV area named Dean who runs a BIG white Suburban with 42's, 1 ton's, Klune 205 setup, & crawls the heck out of it. They are saying with the extra add-ons of the HD parts & the big Road Armor bumpers & stuff it weighs about 8-9000lbs. If a Klune can take that then it can take a hell of alot.

    There are a couple of other options to consider now too.... (see what happens when you go away for 3 years! :wink1: )


    STaK Box - Offers 2-speed and 3-Speed transfercases (Available ratios: 5.44, 4.33, 3.75 & 3.05)

    Atlas 4 Box - 4-Speed Box offered in two flavors (10.34, 3.80, 2.72, 1.0 or 5.44, 2.72, 2.0, 1.0)


    Neither is particularly cheap....Stak 2-Speed is around $1650, 3-Speed is around $2600, Atlas4 is more like $2800.

    However, they are direct replacements for an existing transfercase....(like getting a Doubler in a single case), so the overall length is close to stock, and there should be a lot less crossmember mods, driveshaft modifications, etc.

    If I had it to do over again today, Stak would be my choice.

    They are really cool. Marv Springer installed one in his brothers Jeep. I got to see it on the garage floor before he installed it. It was a very nice piece of hardware. When I build my buggy there is a very good chance I will get a stak in there. They are $$$ but they are worth it from what I have seen & read.

    Next one for me is the Staks also.

    Lower gears are the #hit.

    I guess it depends on what you need... but I want more front driveline length... so a stak (while cool as hell!) wouldn't work as well for me as a doubler or klune or whatever.
