I figure a TeraLow with the 2wd Low is around $1400 if not more before it's all said and done....

The Atlas should be around $2800 (not sure) with rebuilt driveshats...

My 4.56's are good on the road with 33's, but offroad, especially on the rocks - they just aren't enough...I already have the JB SYE, and I figure the teralow would be the most cost effective...I have a D30 front, Dana 44 rear with Detroits.. going to 34" swampers...

Any opinions appreciated...

Thanks,

Jason

Neither!

Flip a D300 and put it in. 4:1, twin stick shorter than atlas and almost as strong for around $1400. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

This is more like a JU topic, <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> but the way I see it.... If you stay with a 4 cyl. or I6 then the Tera is fine. If you are planning to go V8 spend the money and go for the strength. IMHO

I disagree. 4 cyl, yeah I guess terra low. But 6 cyl or up I want ATLAS all the way (probly cause I got one <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0"> ) I like to abuse my chit...and the Atlas can take some real punishment <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Atlas. By the time you spend all the money on a 231 to get the 4:1 and the 2wd low, you could have spent a little more and have the atlas with all that already on it. Plus you can sell the 231 with the SYE to recoup some of the cost of the Atlas.

You can do the same by flipping a 300, save yourself at least $800 and unless your running 38+ you'll never break the 300 <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Atlas. Keep checking around on price. The one you posted strikes me as high, even w/ the d/s included. Also, you can cut down on your cost by having the front d/s shortened to use on the rear.

If you are going to modify your jeep anymore in the future, deffinetly go with the Atlas. If you are going to stay with 34s and nothing more, go with the 300. If you throw money into a d300, it is still just a 300. It is the D44 vs D60 logic, why not go bigger?

ATLAS Rustys has the cheepest I have seen. Why spend so much money to still have a chain drive? Good if you go bigger, Good if you get a second trail rig. Just good all together.

Yes, I believe 1410 yokes are available at additional cost however. <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

This does sounds sbit JUish, and it sounds like a tera kit will do this fella just fine.
I am planning for an Atlas myself. Like Keith"When my trailers a rockin don't come a knockin" Strong said, I don't believe the tera will hold up to even a 6cyl.

I also think the 300 Flip Kit is the way to go, maybe because I got one and I love it. I think if you can afford the atlas then get it after all it is the best tcase out there, but if you want to save some money and still get a cast iron gear driven tcase w/ twin sticks then order the Flip Kit. Just my $.02

The altas is only marginally stronger than the 300, upgrade the to the Advance mainshaft and their equal, plus the 300 is shorter <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Plus if you go to 60's later, you can just flip the 300 over and have pass side drop. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

I went with the Atlas. I didn't want to spend the money and still have to worry that someday, sometime I might break or need to upgrade. I sleep well at night knowing I have a Atlas..
