the ice cream man! LOL!! I'm glad you got to see him. Well, I was thinking of going through Johnson City. I just take I-26 over to TN and to Johnson City, then go from there. It takes about 45-1hr to get to JC from Asheville. Is there an addy I can look up and find a better route?

Edit: Did some Googling and found it. It'll take about 2 hours and a bit to get there. Not bad. If I get this clutch and spring in this weekend I'll need to shake it down again. Wanna head up there?

Well... I just got a line on a $150 32 spline NP203 that I will be picking up tonight. I hadn't planned on doing the doubler route right away (as many of you know) but at this price I can't pass it up.

Since I work at a machine shop, I can do the billet aluminum adapter myself... can I buy the shaft coupler individually anywhere? I just haven't had time lately to look around for the shaft coupler.

What shaft coupler are you talking about? You can buy just the 203 billet output shaft from NW Fab and you can get that in either 31 spline to mate a Ford 205 or in 32 spline for a GM 205.

Sorry, by shaft coupler I meant NP203 output shaft.

I picked up a doubler kit off of Pirate from some place in Wisconsin, I think his name on Pirate was Jaybird. Their doubler adapter is a two piece unit, that you have to weld together, the advantage of that is you can clock your t-case in ANY position.

I'm running an Ford NP435, Ford NP203 Range box, mated to a flipped Jeep Dana 300. With my axle gearing, my Jeep has about a 175 to 1 crawl ratio.

It is quite fun and extremely control-able on rocks.

What 203 Range box will/is the easiest to adapt to a TH400? I know some one who is selling a couple of 203s and want to know what I am looking for before I pick one up.

Thanks

The obvious answer is a 203 that came behind a TH400 (from what I can tell they are hard to come by). The second not-so-obvious answer is ANY 203 with a Northwest Fabworks 32 spline adapter.

I think any 203 with the 32 spline should be money. You can tap the face for any bolt pattern at a machine shop.
