    Yeah, I'm kind of waiting too. It can have a large impact on what I do.

    Thanks for the reminder dale - It had somwhat slipped my mind in the recent mayhem of production, I will put the order in for the shafts shortly, the adaptor plates won't take long at all. Remind me, you after Figure 8 or 6 Bolt round?

    Are these going into regular production mode or is this a one-off thing? I want to hook a driver drop NP241 (circa 1994) to a Ford 205.

    I was just about to order gears/detroit but maybe I'll buy a setup from you.

    Hmm, just thinking out loud (or typing rather), but how much difference is there really between the 241 and 208 range boxes. I know that the 241 is a better case and design in a couple of areas, but I'm not aware of anything significant that would make the 208 planetaries unsuitable for this. And given that people are know to give away good 208s (or frequently sell/trade them for VERY little), would it make sense to do this with a 208? Or is there something about the 241 that makes it significantly superior for this application?

    208's have a multitude of uses....

    Backyard art
    The cases work well for small plants
    Oh... and for building "Beetles"
    :haha:

    ryan22re is looking into the 208 Doubler....

    aren't the cases the same from the tranny to the case split?
    if that is the case than the adapter plate would not change at all

    as for the doubler i was just wondering if you guys had finished it yet or not and how you solved the adapter issue
    you guys do awsome work and are great to deal with,when i have the money, (working on getting a second job and a roomate)i WILL get one of these

    How about a 241 to 241? 7.4:1, would be nice for mild or light weight wheelers.

    saw this while surfing pirate last night. Interesting idea.
    http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=399755
    Too bad he doesnt make a 32 spline adater for the rear case. Now if I hadnt sold all my spare 241 parts I would be trying this. Anyone got some junk 241 cases?

    It would be the same thing as those guys running Klune-V's in their rigs with 231's & 241's. The only thing that scares me is the total length.

    Will you be selling just the main shaft seperately? A friend and I were going to attemp this this semester and just cut and re-spline a factory shaft.

    Any update? I am interested in a complete kit, what will the approximate price be? The plate shouldnt require as much machining as a normal doubler so it should be cheaper right :thumb:
