No one who has gone dual cases has wished they'd done a 4.7 gearset instead. I challenge you to find someone who has done the 4.7 gears (like myself) and doesn't wish they still had access to a 2.28 low range from time to time.

Go duals.

I say go Duals, yeah you gotta mess with the driveshafts, but you get that out of the way, that way when you are ready to add the 4.7s later on, all you gotta do is bolt them in and everything else is set.

More slection and if you have 4:70's in the rear case you can start it up, put it in lo-lo-lo get out and tell it to get in the shop, and it will drive itself there. Make sure you are there to stop it or it might end up in your bedroom!!!!!!

Go duals.
I installed 4.7s in my 85' and have never missed my stock low range (got four other gears besides 1st to choose from). If you don't want to go through the hassle of lengthening and shortening drive shafts, relocating shifters....... go with the 4.7s. It's a huge improvement over stock. But be prepared to tear your T-case apart. It's tedious work, but worth the effort. Makes your truck a total sleeper! I am considering doubling up though. You can never go too slow!

Go dual cases with a gear set and be done. that way you have low, low, and lower. Then why your at it you can get a long slip front drive line and a rear CV drishaft. Unless you are POOR and just want lower gears then get the 4.7's

duals first and then gears. Diveline mods are not real expensive as long as you already have appropriate shafts ie long travel front (you should have thsi already) and a cv rear. Call Jess, tell him what you want/need, his prices are always fair.

Unless you really think you'll never want to go lower
or will not miss 2.28, 4.7 only is ok. Otherwise
start with duals....much more versatile.

Yep, go duels.

how cheaply can duals be put in? I know it's like $1600 or something like that to just buy the entire bolt-in deal from marlin, but what if you find the case yourself, just buy the adapter? Who has done this for nothing?

I did it. Not that hard. You just have to be able to follow directions. You have to modify a shift rod though (weld a tab on and maybe cut a little off the end). You could probly buy a modified shift rod though.
JUST DO IT AND THEN YOU WILL KNOW

Definately dual cases first. Besides what everyone else has mentioned, 2wd 2.28:1 low with a locked rear end, the 4 banger wound out, playing Ivan Stewart on a twisty dirt road is just too much fun! (no windshield improves the effect greatly)

Cost me a little less than $700 including driveshaft mods:

MC07 $475 shipped from FRORF
Used T-Case $110 shipped
Driveshaft mods: $98 (local shop)

The only catch was that shortly after installing the dual cases I realized that I needed a better x-mbr for more protection for the rear case (Budbuilt). So, I guess that is an expense too but technically not necessary.

I have 2-low with a 4.7 and no twin stick.

Anyway, like my first post in the thread... Duals first. You WILL want 2.28 low back, wehter you really think so or not.
