The 203 doubler just sounds awesome to me...
That might be an option. Ill have to do a bit more research on it. I assume the 203 is a passenger drop correct? I found this info online:

The TH700 has the same bolt pattern on the back of the transmission as the TH350 and uses a 27 spline output shaft. Since the TH700 only came with the NP208 or later alum t-cases, it's shaft stickout is a little over 2" in factory form. One difference to be aware of is that the TH700 uses 4 metric bolts to secure the adapter to the transmission case.
There are two ways to bolt to the NP203. They are very similar to the TH350 mounting mentioned above.

1: replace the output shaft in the TH700 with an aftermarket output that sticks out of the case by about 7/8". This makes the output identical to the TH350 and you use a TH350 version NP203 with the 27 spline input and a TH350 to NP203 factory 1" thick adapter plate. This is the shortest method. The output shaft cost is $160 and it is available from ORD.

2: use the factory TH700 output shaft and the factory TH700 to NP208 adapter housing with a TH350 version NP203. You will have to re-drill and tap holes in the NP203 gearbox to be able to bolt it to the original NP208 adapter housing. You may also have to do minor machine work on the input bearing retainer on the NP203.
Option 1 seems like the best choice for me since I need to replace the output shaft anyways. Now the question... the cost of doing a doubler. 4:1 would be good for my needs imo.

hey where you at in VA?

This looks like an interesting project. I know 205s can be had for cheap. I think the local junk yard said they would let me have one for about $80, and it had only 110k miles on it. I told my fiend and he picked it up the next day for his 4X4 Chevy truck.

As far as suspension goes, If it were me, I would go with coilovers in the front and a 1/4 elliptical setup in the rear. While you are at it, I say stick with the D60 and 14 Bolt. Sounds like you want to head down some harder trails.

I'm located in Newport News, Va. I am going to check Pick-N-Pull whenever I get a chance to head over to Virginia Beach. Hopefully they have what I am looking for.

Coilovers up front I could justify but I'm not sure about the 1/4 elliptical rear setup. Any idea on how it performs on the road? In no way am I intending the Jeep to be a trailer queen, I want to be able to drive it to the beach and back without headaches
