    Chaz, i reget to inform you that that particular Atlas does not look safe. I will need to extensively test it for you to make sure if lives up to your lofty standards.

    of couse i only have your health and safety in mind as i type this

    sinerley,

    that is my only concern with an Atlas, also.

    I run a TH350, so i have no OD to use if i get the 4.3, the 3.8 and the 3.0 might not be low enuff, or too low, depending on what you are doing.

    I think the Doubler's selectability will always be the #1 reason to run it in my book. now with the advent of 3:1 203 (and some day 205) gears, one could have 1:1, 2:1, 3:1, and 6:1 gearing.

    with an Atlas, you are at what ever you bought and then 1:1.

    i dunno. I do to much mud and sand and cruising trails to use a 4.3:1 and i would hate to buy a 3:1 and not be happy with it....

    i had thought about that prior...but with the atlas i have a better low range..its goin to be 128:1 with in low gear in the tranny and low in the t-case with 4:56...with the doubler i would have had 119:1..but for me i like rocks better than anything else so i can live without as much selecitbility...if i was runnin mud and sand all the time i prob would have went with the doubler just so i had the extra choices..but both the atlas and doubler are great set ups..it was hard to choose..i even had all the parts - the kit itself to to the doubler..so if anyone wants the 203 and adapter for a 465..it will be in the forsale section in a few days
