    What is a total list of \"needed stuff\" for a doubler set up?

    I've got an extra 203 sitting around and may trade it for some parts in order to get a doubler set up in my truck. It just sounds awsome with the drive ratios in the other post, and after riding in Marv's green monster, I think it is the way to go. So, what would be the total list?

    - 203 gear range box
    - complete 205 x-case
    - extended front drive shaft (unless it replaces a 203)
    - shortened rear drive shaft (unless it replaces a 203)
    - ORD adapter
    - ORD 203 output shaft
    - ORD shifter (don't try to make one, just buy ORD's)
    - parts to "freshen up" either of the transfer cases
    - If you want to step up to 1350 U-joints in the rear shaft, you have to buy a yoke from Chevy which comes off the 14b semi-floater ... I think.
    - transfer case yoke
    - cross member relocation
    what else? An adapter from the 203 to 205?

    Uuuhh, let's see (smoke coming out of my ears...)


    - ORD stuff like the adapter and 203 output shaft
    - shifter (don't try to make one, just buy ORD's)
    - parts to "freshen up" either of the transfer cases
    - I stepped up to 1350 U-joints in the rear shaft, so I had to buy a yoke from Chevy which comes off the 14b semi-floater ... I think.
    - transfer case yoke... do you want to go CV..?

    That's all I can think of now...

    Is the CV like a CV on a front wheel drive vehicle?
    What is the other x-case needed?
    Dose the cross member need to be moved back?

    The "CV" is like the double joint at the rear of your front drive shaft. A CV shaft for the rear can help w/ vibs and offer more angle of operation.

    What other x-case? you mean the 205?!?

    Yes, crossmemeber will need to be moved. In fact, it would be good to have a couple of spare crossmembers to see if one fits better than the others. There were a lot of changes thru the years.

    One thing, if you are putting a doubler in place of a 203 (You said you had an extra, im assuming you have one in there?) the rear shaft doesn't need to be shortened, the doubler in the same length as a 203.

    Ok, I understand the CV now. I've seen it on my buddys truck. Is it needed for a doubler? Dosn't look like I will be increasing the driveline angles.
    And that is awsome that a doubler is as long as a normal 203. I found a lot of info on ORD's page also, and am devouring every ounce of it.
