I don't have any pics for you, but the shop I worked at before I came to BDS installed a couple- the last one we did was in an LJ rubicon on 37s with 4.88 gears- you could literally get out and walk next to it in low low range. Kind of overkill for Michigan, but still pretty cool.

The only pics I've been able to find are catalog images. My opinion is that my 231 is plenty low enough for my light wheeling. But I do love what the rubicrawler provides and will get one eventually/immediately if I trip into a money pit.

I put mine in about a year ago, took about 6-7 hours, there twin shifters are awesome. The main reason I installed it is because most of the wheeling around Tucson you don't need 4.1, and I also have the 42rle auto and 33's, so I put 5.13's in which is a perfect combo for the auto. Now most of my wheeling is 2.72 4wd and 2wd. The 11.1 is great for dropping of ledges or technical spots.Best of all worlds, highly recommend it. I did take pics of install, just haven't done a write up as it would take me a few hours,I think I have a couple of pics in my profile if not let me know what you want to see and I will put up.

Hope they have them in stock now, I had to wait 4 months, but well worth it.

Very nice . I need to order one soon since it takes a while to get one. I was hoping to have it for an annual snow run here in a couple of weeks. I guess that wont happen.
