Good for crawling, but that's about it. Not good for dunes, mud, or snow wheeling where you are more likely to stay in high range, or you'll be in 4th and 5th gear in low range.

You can swap the internals from a dodge 241 and you'll have a 6 gear planetary and a thicker chain. You just use the 231 input shaft i believe? Don't quote me though I'd have to find the write up to make sure

Rubi 241 gives 4:1, what you're suggesting is for strength.

He's got a wheezy smoky 4.0.. so that 231 might be safe.

Yep. The difference in ratio between a rig 3.73s and 35s and one with 4.88 and 40s is not that different.

White Rhino runs 4.88s and 40s; but he did the right thing and put a V8 in there for his play time at the dunes and in the snow.

Since you want more power for driving around and at the dunes, I don't think a gear change or especially a Rubi case are the solution. You need more horsepower, plain and simple.

Yup, I ran heavy ass 33x15.5SX's with a 4.0 and 3.55 gears and had plenty of fun at the dunes, tons of fun. If I ever felt underpowered it was because I had too much air in the tires.

It doesn't really matter, every thread this trainwreck starts is a trainwreck and absolutely hilarious.

I think he has surpassed stupidbuilt levels of skooterness.

If you want an all around rig that crawls and creates wheel speed, you will not do it with a transfer case and axle gearing. You need hp. Therefore, you should bump your stroker thread.

He sure does have a lot of expensive ideas. What does a used rubi case go for now a days, im guessing for about as much as a good used 4.0 with low miles and more hp then he has now. No wonder everyone is starting to call you out on them. Pick one thing save up, do it and move on to the next.

I'm ok with running a high gear in low at the dunes just thinking the 4:1 might be a good idea so I'm not putting money into axles that I'm gonna ditch in a few years. Just trying to figure out what makes the most sense motor, gears or tcase

I know. I want a 5.3 but can't afford it right now so I'm looking for an alternate route

I may rebuild my motor as is then regear or do a tcase. That or so a stroker just wondering if it was your rig and had a limited budget what you would do

A rubi case is about $800-1k. About the same price as regearing my axles that's why I was considering it. Wadey gave me the idea

Do you have to change up drive shaft lengths if you go from 231 to 241? Don't forget to include that into the price..

Since you seem to be bouncing around with all these questions and then say you are going to do this or that and then make the statement you have a limited budget, here's what you should honestly do.

- Live with it as is.
- Decide what you want your end build to be.
- Live with it as is.
- Save your money.
- Live with it as is.
- Repair only what you must, without spending anything extra on it. UNLESS... it is an item you intend to keep. If it is going to be removed during the build, minimum repairs.
- Live with it as is.
- Go to school.
- Live with it as is.
- Get a good job.
- Live with it as is.
- Buy a house.
- Live with it as is.
- After your student debt is paid off, start building what you want.

Stop trying to do it half assed on a minimum budget. You won't get there.
