I've got buddies that have 465s and are converting to t350 or 400... Way more control when you're crawling... Most of the buggy guys are going the same route... With the doubler, that gives a 4:1 in the t-case... I've got 4:56s in the axles...

I've drove Blazers with doublers and the stick or auto, the gearing is plenty low with the auto...Yeah, the 465 has lower gears... But, you can stop and control yourself better with the auto... Especially if you're about to flop on your side...

Thats a very nice looking dodge!! Who swapped the 440? That would have to be a real runner, right up to the gas station.

Re: 4x4s and Wheeling Rigs...

And the current "wheelers" The dodge: 4" lift, duel shocks all around, E-lockers, 4:56 gears, 36" all terrains, 9000 lb. winch front and rear, full interior cage, and all the little off road goodies. The Toyota: 3" lift, 295's, factory locker in rear, E-locker in front,rock rails, bushwackers, and a "system" that will vibrate your testicles numb Both are used for everyday drivers and Search & Rescue (It's a tax deduction thing, Till the Feds take that away also.) And when all else fails.........Polaris: 2" lift, 14" rims, 27"swampers, winch F&R, sliders, swapable rack system, full armor underneath, aux. lighting, 45 watt county radio, and a new seat cover every three years from the pucker factor
