Double a 242?

I want to go with a dual transfer case option for the ability to choose different gears for all situations.

The other situation I have is I don't have a lot of money to go out and by a atlas 2 or stack or anything like that.

I have heard about the 231/dana300 double kits, can this work with a 242?

Who sells the kits for either the 231, or possibly the 242?

Re: Double a 242?

You could probly get it to fit but you also need to think of driveshafts because you'll need 2 new ones. That'll take a pretty penny out of your pocket...

Re: Double a 242?

The driveshafts will be nothing after a $400 kit and a $200 dana 300, plus a couple hundred more in misc parts, shifters, boots, welding, etc.

Its a big undertaking. Not undoable, but you'll be halfway to an atlas when its done.

Re: Double a 242?

As far as I know, Duffy hasn't made the Box4Rocks for the 242.

Here is the info for the 231:

Re: Double a 242?

no 242/231 is pretty weak to use as the second box. Most do 231/300.

Re: Double a 242?

I should add, you can do a 231/242 box as the 231 as the doubler, but not a 242/D300 setup.

Re: Double a 242?

Why is the 300 so much better than the 231/242? option

This is what I want to do. I don't see it done. I went through a hundred threads on pirate it seems, and this is very rare, why?

Re: Double a 242?

I am thinking out loud here, but can't the tera low kit and the tera 2 low hit be put into a 242 making it have similar gear options as the 300, cast iron case to me only means weight, I can protect the t-case and I only run a 4.0 in the cherokee, I shouldn't break any chains. is the only issue the twin sticks?

Re: Double a 242?

the 2 low option only gives you rear wheel only. twin sticks gives you front, rear or both. 4:1 is nothing like 7.2:1..........
