I have an 88 dodge ram 4x4. It has a dana 44 front and dana 60 rear. The drive train is 318 mated to a 727 with a married 241 t-case. It's pretty rough on the outside but its a real strong runner. Oh yeah the part I really like is it's a short bed.~Zach

a doubler t-case gives me the low range of like a 4.11 gear set with a 3.55 so i can run 70 mph and not be rapping out my motor now a doubler is a 205 t-case mated the range box of a 203 a 205 has a gear reduction of 2:1 and a 203 has a gear reduction of 2:1 that gives me 4:1 in the t-case plus the low first of the np435 and then the 3.55 in my gear set for a final gear of ??? ( i dont have all the # in front of me right now i will get back to you on that) but it is low so i get a really loiw range and a good high range when i want it

ok here is the #s you have a np 435 with a low gear (1st) of 6.69 to 1 then you have a np 203 (range box) with a low gear of 1.96 (2 to 1) and then a 205 with a low gear of 2 to 1 and last the axle gears of 3.55 to 1 all of this adds up to a final of 186.19608 to 1 low gear then if you dont want super low you shift the 203 into high and you get 47.499 to 1 low and then if you shift the 205 into high it runs just like a plain 205 set up to get close to this final low with out the doubler you would have to have a axle gear of 14.11 to 1 (just for laughs)

p.s if you have any ??? just ask

wow that i didn't know, however one question is this which tcase do you use for your front drive shaft and how do you work around the other tcase? due to both cases haveing an input shaft, rear output, and front output, just curious never seen this done so i will have to come down and take a look sometime.

My name is james. I live in springfield. I do roofing and siding, I own and operate my own bussiness. RIght now I have not much time for play. I am working 7 days a week.
My truck is a 87 RC preaty much stock till I blew the motor out of it. *G*
Right now i have the truck at my fahter in laws. We are rebuilding and replacing a lot of different items. I am also modifying the body to acomidate some flex and larger tires. I used to run the original 3.23 gears with 33 12.5 on it. Did prety good even pulling 5 ton of material or tools. Now i am working on gettting 3/4 ton axles in her and putting a 400 punched to a 455 going to mate that to a 4 speed I have already removed the top and doors Working on sectioning the rear to pull quarters inward. and building a full role cage. GOing to add to much stuff to mention here. should have some pics to post in the future once I get her done. If i can find the time *L* This rig will be a trailer only rig She will not be leagle to run on the streets. IF any one wants to get in touch with me email me at [email protected] I have another 87 Rc for playing around with right now. Both of my Rc's were pulled from the junk yard.

See you all later.


James
