Just got off the phone with Advance Adapters and I was told that they got word today that a 5.0:1 Atlas 2 will be in production sometime this year!

From what I was told, they will be using the same case as the present ones, so you could purchase the gearset alone to upgrade your present case if so desired.

All I know about pricing was that it would be the same as the 4.3:1 cases.

Thought you would like to hear it!

Suuuuuwweeeeet!!!

I wonder if they are they gonna be just as durable? (I'd expect nothing less from AA, but they are working with limited space to fit the gears, and they must be approaching some odd sizes.)

I guess my question is
why would you really want a case that low?
especially without a higher low range
would you run it behind a klune?

Sell an organ? Less than 600 bucks can get you into a 5.1:1 case. Its called toyota :D

I am with you man. I would have to sell multiple organs and both nuts... :flipoff2:

so you could purchase the gearset alone to upgrade your present case
Although physically possible, Changing the gear ratio on a currently owned Atlas may not be an economically wise decision. Many people have wanted to do this in the past with the current gear options; ie: 3.0, 3.8 and 4.3. This is also true with the new (5.047 to 1) Atlas. You would probably be better off selling the Atlas and ordering a new one. Several rockcrawling competitors have crossed this issue in the past. Most have been individuals who changed from granny low manual transmissions to automatics, and found the 4.3 too low. The installation of different gears in an Atlas is a little more complex than lets say a Tera or Lomax Dana 300 gear set.

Vic - thanks for chiming in. One, I'm curious why the swap is such an issue. More important to me (as I don't currently have an Atlas) but want one...

Better sense of the timeline than "this year"?
Availability when released
Cost really the same?
All the same upgrades?
What about strength? Same as the others, or at least so I wouldn't notice?

Thanks!

Paul

Which gear set would yall recommend behind a 5.8/ ZF 5.72 granny 4.56 gears and 37 MTR's. All in a full size Bronco w/ a crazy redneck. Will it stand up to 5500 lbs?

Would the strength still be the same? I would think that the planetarys are gonna be bigger reducing the sidewall strenth of the case if its not being replaced. just my thoughts.
