Is this worth getting? I am considering buying a wrangler, and I need a lowere low range in my rig. Is this kit worth getting in strength, and financially? I am very interested in hearing some good stories. I plan on running a stock motor, tranny, some F150 axles, and some 37" MTR's. Will this setup hold up to the abuse of a rubicon runner?

Just spend the extra coin and go atlas.

If you really need the gears, by the time you get done building up a 231 tcase, you are getting pretty close to the cost of a atlas.

Dimi -

If you're not in a hurry, I'll sell you my 231 with a TeraLow and AA SYE on it. I'm bumping up to an Atlas.

I'd say stay far away from Tera gears. I've got a friend that
blew up 2 sets in is NP231. When the second set blew it cracked
the case in half. :eek: He's was running a stock 4.0L, 4.10 gears,
and 35's. The trail was not as tough as the Rubicon. After the
second det took out the t-case he went with an Atlas II.

super good case, and good for the price too. But no twin sticks. No versatility. Get the atlas for $500.00 more, retail

Wonder if the Tera 2 low range selector will work on the rock-trac? According to the article above the shifter attachment is the same.

Which one would you rather have?

A 4:1 NP231 is still a chain driven t-case which means some slack in the drivetrain.
I think the best thing about the Atlas(besides 4.3:1, twin sticks, bla, bla...) is that there is very little slack in it's gear drive. Power is transmited instantly so when you crest a large boulder and let off the gas the vehicle doesn't roll forward it just continues on smoothly.
It just seems that after you get a 4:1, a heavy duty slip yoke eliminator kit, and a 2-lo kit you're real near an Atlas in price. For a little more you gain so much.

I would suggest Atlas too. Look at the past vehicles you have built. You know in the end that is what you will most likely end up with. Do it once, do it right.
