203-205 doubler on an aw4

does anyone know if they make an adaptor to fit a 203 to the aw4..the 203 was bolted to a c-6.? and what would the length be compaired to the 231 that is now in it?

I'm not sure about the adapter for an AW4, but it will definitely be too long for a standard wheel base YJ. Just lifting a YJ causes issues with driveline angles. Adding a second TC, even if it only adds 6" to the drive line length, would not be possible on a standard YJ. It would require the significant lengthening of the wheel base to get acceptable drive line angles. I'm not saying it's impossible, I know that it has been accomplished. You're just looking at some major modifications. Here's a link to a thread that describes the modifications with a Chevy SB and a TH350.

With a aw4 you lose about an 1.75 to 2 inches. they are that much longer. Then like said above any more length just make more work to get a good drive line angles.
