check it out.......No, The drivetrain isn't long enough to. If you really want to do it then I guess you could extend the rears axle by a foot or so and run dual Tcases. Have fun doing it though because it's not as common in jeeps as yotas so parts are going to be hard to come by.
Hmm, really? Tell that to all the guys out there running TeraLOWs or Klune-V/231 combos without problems. The 231 is no Atlas, or even D300, but it's certainly not garbage and it's certainly capable of running with a 4:1 gearset.The problem with either a 4:1 kit (teralow) or using a NP231 behind a doubler is that it can't handle the added torque.
I'm a little confused by this paragraph...are they junk, is throwing an SYE or 2LO in one a good idea, do they have a future or can't they be upgraded? Can they survive a lot of use? So using planetaries from a 231 is not a bad idea?Firstly, NP231s are garbage. Beyond throwing a HD SYE in them, and perhaps a 2low if you want it, they have no future. They simply have too many shortcomings in places that can't be upgraded. Yes, they can survive a lot of use, but that does not make them great. Using the planetaries from a NP231 as a doubler is not a bad idea, box4rocks and madrooster both offer them for $499. You also need to weld a small block-off plate in the remains of your NP231. It is aluminum, and you don't want it to leak, so it makes for a not-so DIY job for a lot of people.

I think you need to make up your own mind before posting...
T answer the original question, yes there is a way. Install a KLUNE V underdrive. It will bolt up and all you will have to change is drivelines (better put in a short SYE while your at it) and tcase linkage. but the question remains - is it practical? If you are looking to gain rock crawling gears and rock crawl, then you really would need to go to an Atlas and of course upgrade your axles. It is all going to cost money.Anyone here ever here of double an np231 t-case? i have the np231 in my truck as well as another in my yard from an s-10 blazer.i also have access to an np208 and 205 case.
Definitely worse than the 231 because there are no SYE's made for it, the only good thing in that case is the wide chain...:thumbsup:oooooo did not know that about the NP207 i pulled one of those out of an early XJ but thought nothing of it... is it worth anything?? better or worse than the 231??
