It sure does. Next weekend we're doing a new trail that has lots of waterfalls to climb.

Theres a wash to drive down to the bottom of the canyon and cross the Rio Grande on the low bridge . Its not difficult , but pretty neat to see . And there's a natural hot spring to relax in .

Its a nice run through the canyon , much different perspective . And as long as the skeeters arent out its a pleasant place to have some lunch or hop in the hot spring .

So some how I got this bug in my ear that after the stretch I want to build a doubler 231/300 setup since I'll have the extra room. I like the idea of being able to select how low the jeep will crawl without paying so much for an Atlas or Stak transfercase. Only issue I've seen is trying to find a kit still on the market.

Looks like he makes the front doubler complete setup only. I've been looking at the a kit that only comes with the plate and output shaft. It requires you the cut your 231 in half and weld the new plate to it making it the doubler and just attach the 300 to it and your good.
kit

cut up

complete 231

231/300


This should run me roughly $700 depending on the cost of the 300. I may sell my 231 and use a used 231 to walk away with less paid into this mod
