This one looks the most promising and I "get" how it works now.... but even this guy has gotten flaky over the years. Uhg... this is just something I want to consider before I order a driveline. I know this will make my Driveline very short again..... maybe to short so I'll have to measure before I get my hopes up.

If I could, a 231/d300 would be a nice setup. Put a 4.1 in the 300 and have 1:1, 1:2.7, 1:4, and 1:11(ish) and have the front or rear dig ability. Or just use a 241 front half for 4:1. Just remember any doubler will be a couple inches longer than your stock tcase.

Yeah the 300 is cool because it ends up being VERY close to the regular length of a 231... but would be more work. A double 231, using my Tera low in the back box would be pretty sweet. But a full 7 inches longer... eek!

Most likely just sticking with what I have.... just thinking out loud.

Got the front end up cleaned up again. It's not surgical like when I did the ball joints... but it's pretty clean again!



Got one rock slider done, took care of some Helldorado and Chocolate Thunder scratches,





And now I have to focus on the cage.... it took a little beating on Helldorado, I dread painting it because I know it's going to turn into a complete re-paint and not just a touch up. I hate painting tubing! Maybe I'll leave it for a conversation piece.

In the long run a swap to a nv3500 or a ax15 is better, stronger trans with a lower 1 st gear. Then you can run a rubicon transfer case.
AX5 isn't a very strong trans so somewhere along the line it's gonna give up, then you are stuck with either upgrading to something better with a 23 spline output so you have better transfercase choices or you blow a wad of cash on another weak transmission and hope the terra crap doesn't die after that.
Anyway I am happy with this stat on the left is with the original 5 speed, stat on the right is with the 6 speed I swapped in



This one is a comparison of a 4 banger TJ with 4.88 gears and a terralo and 35" tires on the left and the same TJ with 33" tires, 4.56 gears and a stock np 231



Jeep is looking good Nate, while tinkering a flip kit for the left knuckle isn't a terribly bad idea, gives a lil more tierod clearance and it's a cheap mod

I hear ya Art, and I know what you're saying is true.... but me being me... and realizing that my AX-5 has served me well for the last 6 years, and about 50k (95k on the jeep total), and more wheeling trips than I can remember would cause me to not have ANY problem buying another if this one decides to kick the bucket. Honestly the dang thing has never skipped a beat so I think it's going to live a long time. If I drastically change my wheeling style, or intentions then I'll definitely be looking for an upgrade. And the difference in 1st gear ratio would be nice, but not nice enough to spend all that money on a new trans. AND T-case.

Voice of reason: Isn't enough, enough! At what point do you say " screw it, time to build a buggy!" Tera low, stretch, 35's, How much more "built" does it need to be? Just sayin!

Shoot according to some this is all just baby food. Maybe I'll save myself some time and money and buy a stock 4cyl TJ to park next to mine so I can remember just how far it's come. I love seeing them on factory sized 205/75r15. I literally think they are cute.

You are right though.

Check my awesome flex back in 2007 after installing my disconnects and unhooking my sway bar for the first time.

See Art... having the time of your life on those little tires! Haha... that's cool though that you bought it brand new. I wish I had, mine.

Thanks Kyle but no thanks. That wouldn't be any improvement over what I Have now really as far as ratio. I was only bringing up the doubler stuff because I already have an extra 231, and with the doubler kit's being in the $500 range, that would be a massive improvement for the money, if I could get one and I had the space for it. Sounds like a good T-case for you though buddy!

I have considered it but with that price tag it may be out of range for me at the moment
