    Theres nothing wrong with a 241. Bone stock it's got a lot lower gear and its a bunch lighter. Keep it full of fluid and it will hold up to a whole lot of abuse. No it's not as strong as a 205 and yeah there is some risk of grenading your 241 whereas with a 205 its pretty much one of the last things on your list you worry about tearing up. In my opinion for 99.472% of us a 241 is plenty sufficiant. I run 39 inch boggers and i think my 205 is way overkill for the type of wheeling I do. A 241 would work fine for me. Plus they are super easy to rebuild.

    So what kind of wheeling do you do? If your not binding your axles up in rocks every weekend I wouldn't have any issues with running a 241.
