Lomax vs Teralow vs Klune vs Stak vs Atlas

So I'm in the parts collection phase of a scrambler build, and i'm just curious what you guys like/what works well.

Options so far:

1. Just a standard d300
2. 4:1 d300 with either the lomax or teraflex, probably lomax cause i can't find the teraflex 300 anymore
3: standard 300 with a klune
4. 4:1 300 with a klune
5. Stak or Atlas

So what do you guys feel works great for the money.

I'm leaning towards #2, but the atlas, stak and klune have me very interested.

Opinions please.

It depends a LOT on what you plan to do with it, what you have available already, and how much money you plan to spend.

Ideally here's what it would be:

Scrambler 5.3 Lm7, Sm420 (have this), Tcase currently thinking Lomax d300, 14b rear(have this from 74 chevy), d60 front(currently have 3/4 ton d44 from 74 chevy) H1 beadlocks, 37's or 38's

The crawl ratio with the 4:1 300 and 37's, 4:10 diffs, and the 7.05 first in the sm420 gives a crawl ratio of 115.

I'd like to rock crawl it, while having it street worthy.

I did some checking around and decided i just can't justify an aftermarket tcase.

The Stak 3, and Atlas 4 are both right around 2900.

If i had to go with one of the two i'd definitely go with the stak, because they have the option for a park brake.

Heard of another underdrive i forgot to add and it's box4rox, it's a guy over on pirate that makes these kits. Pretty cool.

Add it up,

Dana 300
4-1 kit: 600.00-700.00
HD32 spline rear: 350.00-375.00
HD32 spline front: 150.00-175.00
machine work for the HD front yoke: 1250.00-160.00
Now you say you dont need the HD yoke's then expect to break them, alot.
They are small and cant handle the 5.3 power and 37's.

So add it up the smaller numbers and its close to 1200.00 and thats not even including the rebuild for the dana 300. Yes you need that to, any dana 300 is over 23 years old now and will need a good going threw. So add another 150ish to that price.

If you keep an eye out for a used atals there in the 2K down range and will have all the beef your looking for. Or check AA for deals around X-mass they had a huge blow out last year Atlas 2 Speed Transfer Case (3.0:1 Low Range) | Engine & Transmission Conversion Adapters - Advance Adapters

Now that is a 3.0 atals for 2K new, yes its not a 4-1. I would rather have a 3.0 atals than a 4-1 300.

Its a case that will be with you for life so spend the money right from the get go, IMO.

Jason.
