    Many people like the 241 because of the low range but the 205 is gear driven.

    205 is undeniably the toughest T-Case out there. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    NP205 is deff. the toughest, but the NP241 is all around the best bang for your buck. Granted I would love to have a tripple-stick doubler with the WMS 3:1 gears and have a 6:1 Low range... /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif But for practicall use and the best low range I'd go with the 241.

    i think the 208s are a good case. They have a slightly lower low range (2.61:1). And it is lighter than the other ones.

    Try 2.72:1 low range in a NP241.

    slip yokes are the work of the devil... my vote goes to the np205 (1980 slip yoke equipped ones excluded of course). The 241 is a decent case if it has a SYE kit on it, but the title of the thread is which STOCK case is best... so there you have it.

    I like my 241 because I wheel the peee... out of it hard and haven't had a problem with a 350HP&450lbsof torque 406SB motor in front of it with 3/4ton axles and 35" boggers under it.It has a nice crawl with the lowest ratio of them all and with a TH700 you can crawl better than any other stock setup besides the granny 465. I would go for a 205 in a bigger heavier rig with 36's or bigger and lots of horsepower. the 208's and 241's like to leak oil though but I ran mine out more than once and it still works ok. They are all good cases in my opinion. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
