anyone have any experience with stak cases. i was leaning towards a 3spd stack over a 2 spd atlas. but wondering what issues people are having with them.
Can you even get them still/yet? I know a while back some company took them over and there was a HUGE delay to even think about getting one. That and the way they couldn't fix the issue of it popping out of gear all the time under load was enough for me to just go with the atlas. With the auto you should be fine with a 2 speed, especially if you can manually control what gear your in. They do have some perfect ratios to pick from though.

Why such a big rush to ditch the 300?

You want to run my Krawlers through the winter?

ive been bitching and moaning about getting an atlas for 5 years. so now i actually have some cash and wanted to get it now. but the 300 is already bolted up and rebuilt. so it will come down to how much i spend on suspension, wheels and tires 1st i guess.
