    205 strongest case and gear driven low range is too high
    241 best low range chain driven
    208 good low range chain driven
    203 strong case but chain driven
    Early models had Danas too , but I don't know those /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Harley, that order is better, I just put the 203 last as not many are running those anymore, at least not full time. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Alot of guys still run 203's, and alot more run half of 203's. The reduction unit on the 203 is strong that is why the doubler was invented using it and the 205. Both are strong. The rest of the 203 is pretty strong too. Heck Shawn hasn't broken one yet. He broke several motors, 14bff, Th400, adapters, frames, etc. but no 203. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The 241 and 208 aren't slouches though. They got the better low range as you and I know but they are aluminum, and thin cast aluminum at that.

    They also hang down about even with the axle tubes. Do the clocking ring and beat your floor boards up to match.

    You really don't want me to do the clocking ring. That would mean I would have to get rid of my nice custom crossmember since it would be of no use and you would have to help me build another one. You have enough fab work coming up on my truck as it is. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Do you really want another project.

    Sofar the crossmember is fine. I don't even have that much rock rash on it yet. I am sure that will change though.

    P.S. Your one to talk about low hanging objects. How long did it take before you shaved your 14 BFF? /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Looks great for going forward... But backing up on a rock pile might get interesting /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
