    Well I have driven ole Butch on three short trips now and boy oh boy what a difference. With the doubler in low and the t-case in low I can idle up on an obsticle and hit the brakes completely stopping my tires from rolling for about a second. The suspension settles down and then it starts to climb. Cross-over steering works great too, but without sway bar the whoop tee doos in the road are a bit scary though. Glad I could not bring myself to forsake the manual. Autos are for girls LOL. Look out Bump Dump. Me and Moab will square off on Monday. :-)))))))))))))))))))))))))))). I cant wait to go.

    I thought I was wrong once,
    but I was mistaken

    Auto's are for girls? With a name like Butch, are you sure you are not a girl in disguise. [​IMG][​IMG]
    Can't wait to wheel the piss out of our rigs next week.

    What's a "doubler"? Be careful...I'm a girl and I can drive the piss out of a manual! Most of my trucks have been manuals, but an auto tranny is nice cause now I don't have to eat, drink, and shift all at the same time. LOL!

    BTW: I'm NOT offended by your comment...I just like giving people a hard time. [​IMG]

    A doubler is a 203 range box in front of a 205 transfer case. It gives you a 4 to 1 low instead of just 2 to 1, great for rock crawling, probably not so good in the mud.

    You need to pay a visit to <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.offroaddesign.com>http://www.offroaddesign.com</A> and read up about the Doubler. Unless you're a machinist, I don't think a homemade Doubler is something that can be whipped up in the garage. Ocne you've read up on it, come back here to CK5 and go to the Offroad Design forum, and ask any questions of Stephen (Mr. ORD) that you have. Determine with him what you need to get, then pay the man and enjoy the ride!
