    Is replacing a 208 with a 241 a direct bolt on? Considering it cause I would like the slightly lower crawl ratio but can't afford a doubler right now.

    just looked, guess its not really worth the time and effort, 70:1 vs 73:1 with 4.10 rears. Would do it if someone traded me or my 208 was cooked.

    If the 208 needs work it prob would be OK swap.241 has a little higher torque rating and should be more popular case before long,but,Idon't think I would change out a good case for the small reduction. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    yeah if the 208 goes I will definetally replace it with a 241. I would like to see a 208/241 doubler. Doubt I ever will just would like to.
