Looking at the advance adapters page, the NP231 w/ short shaft is 16.3" long (about 20" w/o the short shaft kit) so the KLUNE V
/ATLAS combo is a total of 20.3" long, the KLUNE V/NP231 w/ short shaft combo is 22.8" long. So if you choose to go 231 short shaft/klune v combo it isn't going to shorten the driveline too much (2.5" to 3" difference in total length.) If you have the money to go ATLAS Klune V the length difference is 0" to .5". If any of this is incorrect let me know because I don't see much problem in driveline length if you ue a high angle drive line.

The info used:
NP231 stock - 19.8" to 20.3"
NP231 w/ AA short shaft - 16.3"
ATLAS - 13.8"
Klune V - 6.5"

I believe the two ratios available in the Klune V are the 4.0:1 and te 2.7:1

I plan on a Klune V at some point and move my engine forward to compensate for the added length.

in addition to all these other comments you have the ability to clock your trnasfer case flat....I am also in the middle of installing a Klune between a 999 and a dana 300. for tech help ask for Luke he will help you till Hell freezes over

The klune, (someone correct me if wrong)
Has 1-1
4-1
11-1 reduction.

Selectable. So you can still get your T case in low range just like you dont have a Klune.
Or you can keep the t case in Hi range and go to 4-1 and be slightly lower than low in your t case or you can go way down and 11-1 and reduce your t case and go nowhere in a hurry. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

you must be wrong with the 11.0 to 1, if that was the case youd end up with 780 to 1 ratio <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> i dont think so...

if you run everything you currently have plus the klune in a lets say 4 to 1 youd have a final ratio of 178.432 to 1

if ya tera lowed and kluned you have 262.4 to 1

if ya went to a 4 speed box with roughly a 6.5 first youd have 426.4 to 1


if ya did all the above and changed gears to 5.13 youd have 530.4 to 1


there ya go belly! and i have no engineering degree <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> ba hahahaha <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
